VI VERI UNIVERSUM VIVUS VICI

Wikipedia translates this Latin phrase thusly: “By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe.”

I saw this phrase on the mirror in V for Vendetta. Whatever you think about the phrase in English, I like the way it sounds in the original language.

Yesterday, I mentioned another quote from the movie that I liked. I find this movie to be really cool from a vocabulary perspective.

Are there any quotes from V for Vendetta that you favor? Independently, are there any Latin phrases that you like?
