Magna vis pecuniae.

Nescire quaedam magna pars sapientiae est.

Nil magnum nisi bonum.

Res est magna tacere.

Vive tibi et longe nomina magna fuge.

Salve,
I use your Latin Lolcats weekly, and am very grateful and amazed that youʻve made them. My students, the ungrateful wretches, would like to see other animals besides cats.
Is this a possibility?

Thanks so much,
Linnette

Thank you so much for your comment, Lineette - and here's the perfect challenge for your students: icanhascheezburger - icanhascheezburger.com - is FULL of all kinds of things you can make LOLs with, other animals, celebrities, all kinds of meme-generating stuff. So you can have them go at it themselves - and the extra proverbs that I include each day are fair game, since they contain ONLY words on the DCC Core Latin list, so they shouldn't be too hard. If you make a blog of their productions, let me know - it would be fun to publicize it! :-)
