What now?

I've finished reading De Bello Gallico with quite a good understanding of it
(though some parts still trick me a little) and I've read two or three poems of catullus too. What should I try now? If someone could give me some advice - both on poetry and prose - I would be glad.
Thanks

translate a club motto

Hi there - i know this is my first post and i'm already asking for help...
I was just wondering if anyone can offer a translation of my cricket club's motto... It's traditional to have it in Latin i know, but it's been a few years since my Latin GCSE's and i'm a little rusty..

Would this be an imperative? I'm lost..

Thanks ...

Strange Word

I am trying to find the meaning of "capularis".

Origin of fero, tuli, latus

I'm curious as to how this particular verb developed. It's obvious fero comes from the Greek verb phero, which means about the same thing. But I'm not quite sure where tuli and latus came from.
