The vast majority of people associate Latin with doctors' prescriptions, because, as we know, they are written in Latin. But at the same time, there are many well-known phrases in Latin, which, no, no, and you will meet in someone's speech.

People who can speak this ancient language are perceived by others as educated. But sometimes it’s not at all necessary to learn it “from and to”, it’s enough to remember a few common phrases and, if necessary, flaunt them in a conversation - and then you will certainly look smarter in the eyes of other people. Moreover, you already know something: for example, alma mater, persona non grata, etc.

35 famous Latin phrases to add to your vocabulary and what they mean

1. "Mulgere hircum" - "Milk a goat"

This Latin phrase means trying to do something impossible. Which makes sense, given that it's impossible to milk a goat.

2. "Festina lente" - "Hurry slowly"

In fact, this expression calls to act quickly, but prudently, carefully. Augustus, the Roman emperor, often chastised his generals, advising them to "make haste slowly" because he thought that haste was dangerous.

Refers to a person who is not welcome or is not wanted to go anywhere due to their behavior or other reasons. For example: "He became persona non grata in our company after his indecent behavior."

This refers to the educational institution that a person once attended: school, college, university.

5. "Veni, vidi, vici" - "I came, I saw, I conquered"

For us, the sound is more familiar: “Through thorns to the stars,” but the essence of this does not change.

17. "Pecunia non olet" - "Money does not smell"

It is believed that the history of the origin of this expression is as follows. When the Roman emperor Vespasian introduced a tax on public toilets, his son Titus complained about the "disgusting" nature of the money. Vespasian held up a gold coin and asked if it smelled, and he himself answered: non olet ("it does not smell"). From here, the phrase was expanded to pecunia non olet - "Money does not smell."

18. "Mea culpa" - "My fault"

This Latin phrase is used to admit one's fault or mistake.

Perhaps every student's favorite expression when they simply can't name more examples.

27. "Surdo oppedere" - "Burp in front of the deaf"

Simply put, according to Desiderius Erasmus' Adagia (1508), surdo oppedere means a useless action.

This term implies that one should look for the culprit in the person to whom the unpleasant event will benefit / benefit.

The only word in Latin I know is Bon Aqua :)

Have you ever lost your mind when they begin to “run over” you, make unreasonable demands, accuse you of all sins, throw insults in your face, or, as it were, accidentally try to prick you with an “innocent” joke? Many people find themselves in this situation, and usually, a witty and reasoned response comes later, when the aggressor is already gone.


Learning to use "limiting phrases" to protect yourself from attacks or insults from the interlocutor.


Very often, this is because you did not take care to establish a boundary that would protect your identity. You can create such a protective wall with restrictive phrases.


At Bemorepanda, we have found that many phrases help set personal boundaries, defend against uncomfortable questions, and avoid sharp conflicts with people.


Such psychological boundaries are needed not only for self-defense when communicating with strangers in public places or with colleagues at work, but also with those we love - those we see and communicate with most often. It would seem that boundaries are easiest to establish with loved ones, but here's the problem - we often forget that we may need it.


Saying "I won't stand to be talked to like that" to someone following you on the street is one thing, but saying that to your husband, wife, or best friend? This will require a different level of skill and strength. But the closest people can inflict the deepest wounds - they know perfectly well where to hit harder.



How to start setting boundaries?


Psychologists recommend a technique for making requests instead of demands: Focus on what you see, think, and feel. For example, you want to tell your partner something important, and at the same time he is playing with the phone. You think that he does not care about you, is not interested in what you say, so you begin to get angry and upset, demanding to pay attention to you. Instead, turn the requirement into a request. Say, "I'd like to talk to you about something, can you put your phone away now?"


Most often, boundaries are easier to establish with those with whom we are already close. But how do we set boundaries with friends, roommates, colleagues, and extended family—people outside of our immediate family and inner circle? Here are a few phrases that will help you start building a strong psychological protective wall between you.



1. “I need time to think about this” - with this phrase you will provide yourself with space and time to maneuver so as not to agree or refuse a person right away. Use it with colleagues, with family members on long trips, in arguments with friends, when you see that the conversation is going nowhere and you want to avoid conflict.


2. "I don't want to talk about it right now, can we switch and talk about something else?" The phrase can come in handy if the person you are talking to is too curious and asks about things that you are not comfortable talking about. Say the phrase and politely switch the conversation. You can use it with just about anyone, even kids who ask questions you can't answer well at the moment, and fans who want to get something out of you and you're not ready to tell.


3. “I love (respect) you, but I really have to go. Let's set another time to end this conversation?". The phrase will allow you to end the argument, only you need to pronounce it very kindly so as not to destroy the relationship with the person who may think that you do not want to waste your time on him.


4. “It hurts me a lot when you talk to me like that. We will end the conversation and talk again when I see that you respect me and my values.” It helps when you are spoken to in an unkind or offensive way. It is a way (and a necessity) to ask to be spoken to kindly and politely when things get out of hand. Works with the people closest to you - parents, spouses, friends. As the saying goes, “If someone throws a temper tantrum because you set boundaries, that’s just more proof that you need boundaries.”


Use "limiting phrases" to set boundaries in conversations.



In everyday life, we do not always have enough time or energy to constantly defend our borders and participate in a possible confrontation. In such cases, when it is not clear what to expect from an encounter with people around you, a set of several key "limiting phrases" will help you. If you have them at the ready, they will help you cope with those who cross the line in a conversation with you.


Not all phrases apply to every situation or are suitable for every relationship. For example, "It's weird that you're asking this" might work when someone asks a question that's too personal, but it might not be enough when talking to co-workers or a boss. In order to respond on autopilot, you will first have to weigh what and when to say.


Here are a few examples to get you started building your arsenal of phrases that separate your personal boundaries:


  • I dont have time for this.
  • We'll come back to this in a couple of hours, we'll both have time to think.
  • I don't have to explain myself to you.
  • It won't work in my case.
  • Let me stop you right at these words.
  • It's not really up for debate.
  • I know you'll say it's "just a joke" but it's not funny.
  • Why did you say so?
  • Why are you asking me this?
  • Do you think this is appropriate?
  • Could you explain what's funny about that?


Keep in mind, the goal here is not to memorize these phrases word for word. You can make your list of something like this that will suit your style of speech and situation. Remember that you will need to prepare a little in order to be armed and at the right time not to get confused. If you are able to deliver a pre-set limiting phrase in a conversation, you will create space between you and the impending conflict.


When is it best to be silent and when to speak?



Sometimes the best tactic is to let your silence speak for itself. If a colleague asks an inappropriate question about your personal life, you can remain silent and not answer to show that you are not even paying attention to this indiscreet attack. If someone in your family continues to harass you about career or partner choices, then simply state "No comment" and this can help prevent a nasty fight.


Again, you should not allow your silence to allow the other person to think that you have shown weakness and indecision. If someone is spreading misinformation about you or showing hate, then you have a responsibility to report it, even if it's embarrassing. Any limiting phrase will be better than silence, and the script phrases above can give you confidence that you won't get confused or lost in words.


Here is a selection of useful phrases


When you disagree with someone:


  • I do not agree with this approach or assessment.
  • I say what I think is right.

  • Thank you for thinking of me. I'm always ready to take on a challenge, but it's beyond my skill set.
  • I'd be happy to help, but I need a day or two to get ready.
  • I understand the urgency, but it's not something I can do right now.

  • My feelings are just as important as yours.
  • If you choose to ignore me, that's your problem, not mine.
  • I can see that you're worried about me, but I'm an adult and I can make my own decisions.


When someone gives unsolicited advice:


  • We have tight deadlines. Let's focus on the task at hand and then consider your suggestions.
  • I like the idea. Can you lay out and email everything?
  • I'm so grateful for your advice, but I'm going to try something else.

It often happens that in a dispute or an unpleasant conversation with other people, we do not find what to say in response to them. Clever thoughts, as a rule, come later, when, in fact, there is no one to “be smart” with. We think with regret: why didn’t I think of this earlier?!


Phrases that can come in handy when you don’t know what to answer (and to cheer you up)

Questions will always be accompanied by an answer, which you will see below. But don't peek!

4. When Josh was 8 years old, his brother was half his age. Now that Josh is 14, how old is his brother?



His brother is 10 years old. Half of 8 is 4, so Josh's brother is 4 years younger. When Josh is 14, his brother is still 4 years younger, so he is 10.

Hint: look for a pattern!



The most common number is 1! Do you understand why? Each number from 1 to 9 occurs exactly the same number of times in every ten numbers. But since the number 1000 was included, the number 1 appears one more time in the number series.


So, in total, the number 1 occurs 301 times, while all other numbers occur in the series 300 times.


9. How many bricks does it take to build a brick building?



Only one is the last one.


10. A bat and a ball cost $1.10. The bat costs one dollar more than the ball. How much is the ball worth?



5 cents.


If the ball really cost 10 cents, then a bat that costs $1 more than it would cost $1 + 10 cents. This contradicts the conditions of the problem. Let's take a look at the solution. Let's say the price of the ball is X. The bat costs $1 more, X + 1. The equation is: X + (X + 1) = 1.1 because the bat and ball together cost $1.1. We solve the equation:


2X + 1 = 1.1;


2X = 1.1 - 1;




X = 0.05.


So the ball costs 5 cents and the bat costs $1.05.



11. Can you arrange four nines to make 100?



99+9/9 = 100.


12. When John was six years old, he drove a nail into his favorite tree to mark his height. Ten years later, at the age of sixteen, John returned to see how much taller the nail was. If a tree grew five centimeters every year, how much taller would a nail be?

23. Old Granny Adams left half of her money to her granddaughter and half of that amount to her grandson. She left a sixth to her brother and the remainder, $1,000, to a dog shelter. How much did she leave?



The trick is to focus not on hypothetical amounts but on fractions: Adding half, a quarter and one sixth tells us that the sum is a fraction of twelve (2+4+6=12). You can also think of this as 6/12, 3/12, 2/12, which equals 11/12. If the balance is $1,000, it should be one twelfth, so the total is $12,000.

When traveling to different countries, do not forget that the inhabitants of these countries can, and most likely will be, different from you and me and from each other. In other words, the inhabitants of France differ from the inhabitants of Holland (not only in language, but also in culture, habits and, of course, cuisine), and the Icelanders are completely different in their habits, culture and behavior from, say, the Japanese.


Residents of different countries told what tourists should not do at their homes


Therefore, do not be surprised that the locals will advise you at first glance strange things. Just take note - they know better! So here are 20 tips from Reddit users who want to tell you something!


1. Do not litter in nature reserves


Canada is here! Please do not litter in our reserves. — Drifty_Canadian


2. Do not pester with conversations and keep at least one meter of personal space


Finland, if you're wondering: don't talk so damn much. Don't sit close to people.


Maintain at least one meter of personal space. Leave no tip. Don't bargain. Just be quiet. Drink more. — Anomuumitar


3. Don't pet the kangaroo


Australia: Just don't go near and pet a kangaroo in the wild. They will beat the hell out of you! —Tronspecial15


4. Don't go to Temple Bar


Dublin, Ireland: Don't Go to Temple Bar! Tourists always stop to ask for directions... I try to tell them that there are nicer and much less expensive places, but since all the guidebooks tell them that this is a place worth visiting, they don't want to listen to me either. — Gwendilater


5. Don't Annoy the Royal Guard


United Kingdom: Don't feud with Her Majesty's Guard. They have every right to take action if you provoke them. — Snuggle proof


6. Do not get out of the car and do not approach the police when you are stopped


USA: Do not get out of your car or approach a police officer when you are stopped by the police unless you are ordered to. — TheBassMeister


7. Don't drive everywhere!


Iceland: Just because you've watched Top Gear, don't think you can go wherever you want! In fact, this probably applies to most of the countries that Top Gear has visited. — vadlaheidi


8. Don't Go to the Beach Without Sunscreen


Australia: Don't visit our beaches without first applying sunscreen. Wear clothing and polarized sunglasses. We have the highest skin cancer rate in the world due to the strong UV radiation in the summer. Also don't swim with your clothes on - you will drown. — halfcastaussie


9. Don't buy maple syrup at the first stall you see.


Quebec is here, well, Canada: don't buy maple syrup at the first stall you come across, it will be too expensive. Just go to the grocery store and you'll save big. — OneManYordleGang


10. Don't go to favelas (slums)


Brazil: Don't go to favelas (slums), usually not for people who don't live there. Even the worst locals don't go there without someone who knows someone or lives there. I honestly don't understand why so many tourists want to go to the worst part of the country. — theChaos77


11. Be careful when hailing a taxi


Poland: be careful when hailing a taxi at the airport/railway station. Most guys will try to pick off foreigners. — Wu-TangLAN


12. Never get off the bus without looking both ways.


Denmark: Don't get off the bus without looking both ways. Almost all bus stops have a bike path between the sidewalk and the road. This means that if you just get off the bus as soon as you get to your stop, you will be run over by a man on a steel contraption moving at a very dangerous speed. This can be a bloody, expensive, and very embarrassing moment.


The same applies to when you need to get on the bus. Don't just walk up to it and jump: look both ways before crossing the bike lane.


13. Never criticize the BBC or NHS


UK: Never, Never! Don't criticize the BBC or the NHS.


This is ours! We can complain all we want because we pay for it. And we love to complain too. This is our unofficial national sport.


You are just a guest - if you ever need to use the BBC or the NHS, you should not complain about it! — StuHardy


14. Don't discuss your political views with anyone.


USA: Tell someone your political views and they will never treat you the same way whether they agree with you or not. — CarrieDune


15. Don't mention anything German


Netherlands: Please don't say that we are in some way like the Germans. We are not like them. We are not like them at all! We just don't mention anything German!


Also, don't walk on the bike path and don't feed the pigeons! Yes, smoking in public places is okay, but don't do it in crowded places or when children are around. — Maklo_Never_Forget


16. Don't sit in a pub waiting for someone to serve you.


United Kingdom: Don't sit at a pub table and wait for someone to come and take your order.


The reason why? They just won't do it! — Brickie78


17. Don't try to hug people or shake hands.


Japan: stop being stereotyped. Don't mention the war. Don't try to hug/shake people's hands. Keep order!


18. Never kiss in public


India: You can urinate, but you can't kiss in public. — Kamalnathan


19. Don't tip


South Korea: Tipping is acceptable in some restaurants but is generally considered rude and demeaning. — Shinters


20. Don't wear camouflage/military clothing


Barbados: Do not wear camouflage clothing. - apophis-pegasus
