The Third identity

Alea jacta est....the die is cast..... reputedly said by Julius Caesar as he crossed the Rubicon river to conquer Rome and become the First in a long line of Roman Emperors.

Another favourite from school is of course Tempus Fugit- time flies and it has. In fact it has run out for those Euro sceptics wishing to hold up the ratification of the infamous Lisbon treaty. Now the emphasis is on what next for Europe. Latin has many proverbs depicting all aspects of human life. For the Europe project there is no going back the die is truly cast and it is up to the citizens to provide instructions to its leadership on how they perceive the road ahead regardless of the current political set-up. Latin says it for post Lisbon
Omne initium difficile est.... Every beginning is difficult....... but as the great Carthaginian general Hannibal Barca pointed out Aut viam inveniam aut faciam....... I'll either find a way or make one.........
