Patterning your life around other's opinions is nothing more than slavery
~ Lawana Blackwell
I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

Life Is a Sadistic Masterpiece, Admire it's blood work  :coffee
There’s always an ugly seduction on a broken doll’s scene
So why still pray to the angel of glass
With crystal tears ripping through my eyes
The clock strikes 12 revealing my nightmares on the walls
Cut through the lace and you will find
nothing but a shattered porcelain butterfly

Remember that there is nothing stable in human affairs; therefore avoid undue elation in prosperity, or undue depression in adversity. ~ Socrates

If someone offers you a gift, and you decline to accept it, the other person still owns that gift. The same is true of insults and verbal attacks. ~Steve Pavlina   :blusmoke

You may think me a dummy, but I sure can't figure this out. I never studied Latin.

Now I'm guessing that presto means fast, but I really don't know. Is it a typo? "Persto"

Please don't leave me in the dark. What does it mean? Help fast? Quick to the rescue?

Not a typo, Mistress Witt.  Let me if I can translate.
Well, I'm not up on my Latin either, but Google speaks many languages.  ;D 

Perhaps this may assist you.

persto - To persist, remain firm

et - A bit obvious this, it means 'and' of course. I'm sure you knew that, though.
Or it may mean 'I'. I doubt it, but I'm not absolutely certain.

praesto - To stand before, Be outstanding, excell, surpass

Funny thing, stumbling upon this post, as I am, at this very moment, listening to
Gregorian Chants...which of course, are monks singing hymns in Latin.   :blusmoke

Ohhhhh! OK.  So it means something persist and excel?

Oh, I like that. I think it shall be my motto.

Just call me the Cinderella woMan!

We are able to laugh when we achieve detachment, if only for a moment.
