It's nice to be able to be proud of yourself - on the way to the beach (as a reward for a gruelling weekend) I saw a latin motto: 'In deo fidelimus', I think it was.
Well, it ends in 'mus' so it must be 'we'...
'In' - pretty obvious...
'Deo'...God..?
So, 'In god we ...'
Fidelo - fidelity...faithfulness...
It must mean 'We believe in god!'
I was rather proud of myself being able to translate it. Many people, including myself, have said Latin is pointless, but I have realised it really isn't: we need to know it to understand old texts.
