Special Edition: July 4

For today's special edition of the Bestiaria  in honor of the Fourth of July, I decided to select some Latin sayings about liberty, along with some cats who know the value of being free, not slaves.

Libertas optima rerum.
Freedom is the best thing.

Sine iustitia nulla libertas.
Without justice there is no freedom.

Fac sapias et liber eris.
Get wise and you will be free.

In libertate labor.
In freedom, there is work.

Nemo nisi sapiens liber est.
No one, unless he is wise, is free.

Vigilia pretium libertatis.
Vigilance is the price of freedom.

Nemo liber est qui corpori servit.
No one is free who is a slave to the body.

O nomen dulce libertatis!
O sweet name of liberty!

Ubi libertas, ibi patria.
Where I am free, there is my homeland.

Quam dulcis libertas!
How sweet freedom is!

In libris libertas.
In books there is freedom.

Nolite fieri servi hominum.
Become not servants of men.
