Wow! thanks for offering up another chance!

Here's mine:

"Ubi dubium ibi libertas"

meaning "Where there is doubt, there is freedom"

All I know is that this is a Latin proverb, not sure from where!

I am thinking of using this for dad's b-day card...he is all about logic and thinking things through!

Oh and I really like this too...

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

Two that I remember from my teens while watching some of my best loved movies:

From Steel Magnolias: Well you know what they say: If you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me!

From Anne of Green Gables: Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it.
