Balloon Club Motto

I would like to create a motto for our Hot Air Ballooning club. Stealing from Descartes, I would like to say: "I am safe; therefore, I am".

My assumption is that the word Incolumis is closer than Salus regarding the meaning I would like to convey. Would "Incolumis Ego Sum" be correct?

Any help would be appreciated.

modern Greek?

I have been studying koine Greek for awhile. I have recently purchased a couple of modern Greek books, one is "Travel Talk" and another is "Conversational Greek." I have noticed some differences in sounds of letters and differences in some vocabulary words. But I figured right now would be a good time to learn some modern Greek just incase I eventually would like to speak Greek. I figured learning to speak it would be helpful ...

I have two questions on Latin pronunciation:

I. Does Latin use the trilled R in every Latin word with R in it or just in the alphabet?

II. Does the short o sound like the o in pot or the o in pole?

Amor vincit omnia...

I'm currently reading the Canterbury Tales, and in the prologue this Latin phrase is mentioned, "Amor vincit omnia". With my rudimentary Latin skills I translated this "Love ___ all," and inferred "Love conquers all." I'm just wondering if I am right. :)

Intensive Biblical Greek Summer Course

I would like to learn Biblical Greek, but I am not close to an institution that teaches it. I would like to go someplace for a summer to do an intensive course. I would also like to receive undergraduate credit for it. Does anyone know of such a program?
