- I was amused to hear someone was looking for a translation of the following: "If you can't play nicely, take your ball and go home." Since such efforts are an occasional distraction for me, I have provided it here:
"Si vos can non lascivio puteus per alius, tunc vado domus per vestri crepundia."
While not quite a perfect translation (especially with the punctuation), I'm sure it's more than close enough for its intended purpose. :)
oportet vinco rudis in proprius lingua primoris
"one should master rudeness in one's own language first"
