Love Power Strength...

Post by ChelseaGrace » Thu Feb 03, 2005 4:58 pm

I'm trying to make myself a pair of pants, and I want the Latin words for Love Power and Strength to be on them. The only problem is that I don't know what they are. I also can't figure out another good word to go with those, I'd like them to be symetrical, but knowledge doesn't seem to fit... If anyone can help me, I'd be really appreciative.

Knowledge seems to fit nicely, as knowledge can be a form of power ( Many tribal societies thought that knowledge of a person's name gave you power over them).

So, love, power, strength and knowledge can be translated as: amor, potestas ( also imperium (supreme power), vires, scientia.

Hope this helps,
