Fans of Amo, Amas, Amat, and More, Eugene Ehrlich's first collection of Latin words and phrases which still serve gracefully today, will delight in this second offering. Here's a sampling: audacter calumnaire semper aliquid haeret ow-DAH-ktehr kah-luum-nih-AH-reh SEM-pehr AH-lih-kwid HI-ret talk about negative campaigning! This advice, "slander boldly, something always sticks," goes way back in time. And, for the slanderer, has more often than not been proved effective. So, while our century has had its share of shameless lying, we certainly didn't invent the technique. contra felicem vix deus vires habet KAWN-trah feh-LEE-kem wiks DAY-uus WIHR-ehs HAH-bet don't bet against a crapshooter on a roll Publilius Syrus telling us that "against a lucky man a god scarcely has power." Why buck the odds? dea certe DEH-ah KEHR-tay assuredly a goddess A fine compliment to pay any woman of outstanding achievement in her lifetime.
