Nosce Tempus

And if you don't like Turnip Greens with vinegar, or know what Advent is, 'sucks to be you'.

Gallus in suo Sterquilionio plurimum valet

Handy quote to keep about for the Mexican help. 'Sterquilonio' should be on the fave-words thread.

Etiamsi Cato Dicat

A reference to 'The Pink Panther' film series, I suppose.

De Asini Umbra

Semper tibi pendeat hamus

http://books.google.com/books?id=5EEAAAAAYAAJ&printsec=titlepage#PPA201,M1

'Always have your hook baited'. Clear enough, and straight out of the Compleat Angler.
