All of it, both what me and vamrat posted.

Dude, just quote all those posts and your translation.

From how I understand it, it is for posterity's sake so to speak.

It is more clear to everyone later what is posted in non-English, if there is a follow-up post in the thread tying everything together, rather than just a back and forth between the person giving the translation and the mod asking for it.

But I could be wrong.

FWIW.

Ignorance is not a lack, but a passion.

Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres...

...quarum unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur.


Hi omnes lingua, institutis, legibus inter se differunt. Gallos ab Aquitanis Garumna flumen, a Belgis Matrona et Sequana dividit.


Horum omnium fortissimi sunt Belgae, propterea quod a cultu atque humanitate provinciae longissime absunt, minimeque ad eos mercatores saepe commeant atque ea quae ad effeminandos animos pertinent important, proximique sunt Germanis, qui trans Rhenum incolunt, quibuscum continenter bellum gerunt.

(If you love that sentence...Livy could have made it fill up the entire page!)

All Gaul is divided into three parts, one of which the Belgae inhabit, the Aquitani another, those who in their own language are called Celts, in our Gauls, the third. All these differ from each other in language, customs and laws. The river Garonne separates the Gauls from the Aquitani; the Marne and the Seine separate them from the Belgae. Of all these, the Belgae are the bravest, because they are furthest from the civilization and refinement of [our] Province, and merchants least frequently resort to them, and import those things which tend to effeminate the mind; and they are the nearest to the Germans, who dwell beyond the Rhine , with whom they are continually waging war

Better?

Does it matter if I knew what you were quoting? You posted some Latin phrases on a thread outside the Foreign Language forum. That requires an English translation. It's really that simple. Now I ask formally that you stop discussing this issue here on this thread, since to do so is to debate a moderatorial action, which is not open for public debate.

Too sick, didn't want to go out, and I was stopping by a Walmart, so... . .   

... And then I couldn't find the stupid thing. Stood there looking in the women's section for minutes. Stood there looking in the pain meds section for minutes. Went up and down every aisle in health and beauty several times. Finally had to ask someone.

All's well that ends well though, I suppose.

I'm starting to think that I should have never even considered of having an academic career. What's the use of fancy titles when I'm not really that good, when I'm not going to have long-standing employment contracts and when salaries suck. I should have become a plumber or a nurse instead. I wouldn't have enjoyed that but at least I had a jobs available everywhere.

Good point. And that begs the questions: Will imagination exist after world ends? And how will we ever know?
