  1. Gak juga ah, the quoted saying still sounds as witty as a witty saying.😀 A witty saying is witty because it is witty. The wittiness is in its wittiness, not in its ability to prove anything.

  2. apakah ini semacam “The more we know, the more we dont know”??
    *dikemplang krn nyiptain quote Inggris ngasal* :mrgreen:

  3. And this is THE aphorism that start all aphorisms😆 :

    Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum sonatur.

    ‘Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound.’

  4. A few examples to prove that (taken from here):

    Raptus regaliter: Royally screwed
    Vescere bracis meis: Eat my shorts
    Fac ut vivas: Get a life
    Fac me cocleario vomere!: Gag me with a spoon!

    And my personal favorite…

    Utinam barbari spatioum proprium tuum invadant: May barbarians invade your personal space
