Claustrum sine armario quasi castrum sine armamentario. Ipsum armarium nostrum est armamenturium. A cloister without a library is like a castle without an armoury. For the library is our armoury.
I have traversed the seat of war in the Peninsula, I have been in some of the most oppressed provinces of Turkey; but never under the most despotic of infidel Governments did I behold such squalid wretchedness as I have seen since my return, in the very heart of a Christian country. And what are your remedies? After months of inaction, and months of action worse than inactivity, at length comes forth the grand specific the never-failing nostrum of all state physicians from the days of Draco to the present time; death. Is there not blood enough upon your penal code that more must be poured forth to ascend to Heaven and testify against you?lord byron

"Peace through Strength," surely history's most exploded nostrum.christopher hitchens
Fecisti nos ad te et inquietum est cor nostrum donec requiescat in te.
Nomenque erit indelebile nostrum
Non nostrum inter vos tantas componere lites.
nostrum est quod vivis, cinis et manes et fabula fies. vive memor leti, fugit hora.
