HODIE: ante diem septimum decimum Kalendas Novembres

Inest et formicae bilis.
Even the ant has a temper.

Omnia fert aetas; naturam, nomina, formam
   Fortunamque solet vertere longa dies.

Nemo sine sapientia beatus est.
No one is happy without wisdom.

Amor vincit feros.
Love conquers wild beasts.
