Latin Quotations

The British system had requirements, including Latin. I'm not positive you ever had to know Greek, but there are certainly kinds of curricula where you had to know Greek too. I think in Britain there was the most mindless, repetitive sort of learning.
William Scott

High school was interesting, because I went from a public school middle school to an academy where the first year we were doing Latin, chemistry, biology. I mean, I was woefully unprepared for the type of study.
Kyle Chandler

Latin women are very comfortable with their bodies and their sexuality. We aren't afraid to show that off a little bit more.
Sofia Vergara

Damian Lewis

People think of Latina women as being fiery and fierce, which is usually true. But I think the quality that so many Latinas possess is strength. I'm very proud to have Latin blood.
Zoe Saldana
