Nosce Tempus,M1

Etiamsi Cato Dicat,M1

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

De Asini Umbra,M1

It's a long story about Demosthenes and donkeys, and you will just have to read it for yourself. No comments from Niccolo, please. Consider it a sort of pons asinorum (q.v.).

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