Subject: Grind you down
For those that have been around this list for a long
time, there was a discussion about a phrase in latin
that, loosely, translated into
"Don't let the bastards grind you down"
My girlfriend just started a new job and I'd like to
get a desk sign with the slogan, but I cannot find it
in a search of the archives.
Anyone remember it or still have it around?
