Quote of the day 24th July 2023

"Si vis pacem, para bellum."

Vegetius

The saying "If you want peace, prepare for war" or "Si vis pacem, para bellum" is adapted from a statement made by Roman author Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus in his tract Dē Rē Mīlitārī (fourth or fifth century AD), in which the actual phrasing is Igitur quī dēsīderat pācem, præparet bellum

"Therefore let him who desires peace prepare for war."
