I just thought it would be fun to see what some random famous sayings might look like in Latin.

Cor absentiâ amantius fit.
-ignôtus

Nôlîte interrogâre quid prô vôbis possit facere patria vestra. Interrogâte quid prô patriâ vestrâ possîtis facere vôs.
-Iohannês F. Cennedius

Sî hominî piscem dâs, diem edit. Sî hominî piscâre docês, vîtam edit.
-ignôtus

Nôn finitur dum canât crassa.
-ignôtus

Rosa nomine ûllô aliô tam dulcis oleat.
-Gillarmus Sacespîrus, Rômaeus Iûliettaque

Die nocteque singûlâ in marem cecidit magna incola Atlantis.
-Platus

Cecidit Rôma quia mûrum exstruxêrunt Sêrês.

Seeing this reminds me that I have heard it claimed several times that Cicero was the original author of this quote (another time, though, I heard it was Juvenal). Anyone know if there is any truth to this claim, and if so what is the original source?
The lists:
G'Oogle and the Internet Pharrchive - 1100 or so free Latin and Greek books.
DownLOEBables - Free books from the Loeb Classical Library
