    One thought on “Latin Quips at Your Fingertips”

    1. It s a quote book, what can I say Definitely some keepers A lot of negativity toward women and marriage, kind of funny from a female compiler I m guessing she didn t have a lot of variety to choose from You know those Roman men

    2. Without knowing Latin, nor the context behind any of the quotes, this was just a collection of sometimes amusing sentences Somebody with a background in ancient literature would probably get considerably out of this than I did.It makes for an OK coffee table or back of the toilet book, though, and is a pretty good conversation starter.

    3. Loved this cute little book filled with quotes Just what I was looking for and nicely laid out My copy is a hardback and found in the Bargain Books at my local Barnes and Noble Imagine that

    4. Mandare quemquam litteris cogitationes suas, qui eas nec disponere nec illustrare possit nec delectatione aliqua adlicere lectorem, hominis est intemperanter abutentis et otio et litteris.Laudant illa sed ista legunt.
