Latin Via Proverbs: Home - Start


This wiki website accompanies the Lulu book, Latin Via Proverbs: 4000 Proverbs, Mottoes and Sayings for Students of Latin. The proverbs in the book are put into groups according to grammar, based on the noun declensions and also by the verb conjugations, according to their tense, voice and mood. (Note that I have not included here the additional 200 Latin words and phrases in the back of the book which have now become part of the English language, e.g. agenda, deficit, Aquarius, etc.)


At this wiki, you will find here is the 4000 proverbs, group by group, along with a Search Engine so that you can find a specific proverb, and identify its group number and proverb number. This will make it easy for you to look the proverb up in the book in order to get its grammatical category.


Search Engine Tip: When you use the Search Engine, you can enter a complete word (for example, "amicus") or you can enter just the start of a word (for example, "amic") to get all words that start that way (amicus, amicorum, amicitia, amicitiae, etc.). You can also enter just a substring (for example, "orum") to get all the words that contain that substring (malorum, stultorum, verborum, etc.).


In addition, so many people have written to ask me for a Study Guide to the proverbs, with English translations and information about sources, that I am gradually adding a Study Guide, group by group. You can see the latest additions to the Study Guides at the Latin Via Proverbs blog.


I'm also creating audio files for each proverb. You can hear the latest additions to the Study Guides at the Audio Latin blog.


You can read about a new Latin proverb each day at the Audio Latin Proverbs blog.


Finally, you can also add a "Latin Proverb of the Day" to your website, using a simple javascript. You can learn more about that at the SchoolhouseWidgets.com website. Here is the proverb of the day for today:
