Sound Matters

My dear friend, The Redoubtable Marcus Magnus, turns up the darndest things.  He is a fount of all kinds of stuff I would never even think to look for on my own.  Such as the following line that ought to be silkscreened on T-shirts and distributed to bishops, priests and seminarians all over the country:

QUIDQUID LATINE DICTUM SIT ALTUM SONATUR

Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound.

Another reason why -- although I am a chauvinist for English in most matters -- some things really are better in Latin.
