I Most Certainly Concur

August 29th, 2020

It is easier if you know what it actually says… Phoenecia would know.

That would be my dear grandmother’s Latin dictionary… equipped with a Gothic typeface. It is a truly impossible read in the 21st century.

At one time there was an idea to make Latin a “neutral” official language in the EU. It did not pan out, so now we have broken “Hinglish” instead? A huge mistake according to me. What about Via Appia!? Coincidentally I have actually been to Brindisi (occurred to me just now).

Resurrecting Latin would have been über cool. The overall direction is wrong. Is it not? The notes are from the late 1920’s. I’m guessing 1927/28 or so… at the time a girl or possibly a very young woman.

OK. Enough with the dilly dally. Text reads: “Scientia Est Potentia” and that’s Latin to you and me.
