Cor ad Cor Loquitur

Manolo says, these handsome suede shoes from the Kate Spade are yet another of the shoes named for the philosophers, this time the Augustine

With these upon your feets the Donatists and the Pelagians would not stand the chance.

Previously, the Pascal and the Liebniez.

    The language of the Caesars, it is hidden in the far recesses (9th grade Latin class) of the mind. Could someone with the better recall please translate the rollover comments?

    With total amor, amas, amat…

    Cor ad Cor Loquitur — The Heart Speaks to the Heart. Loquitur is one of them kooky deponent nouns.

    Ay! I haven’t thought of the Pelagian theologians since “Touched By An Angel” went into syndication!

    Verbs. Deponent verbs. Those shoes smacked the grammar right out of me with their prettiness.

    Rollover comment: “Victoria veritatis est caritas”

    The victory of truth is charity?

    Look, I took only one year of Latin. Agricola, agricolae…

    I dunno, I’m not as articulate and biliterate as your other readers AND I don’t refer to myself in the third person

    BUT

    Those shoes are decidedly unsexy!

    I don’t see any room for toe cleavage and they’re so high and rounded they look vaguely orthotic.

    Plus, Kate Spade has been OVER for years.

    Da mihi castitatem et continentiam, sed noli modo.

    Give me chastity and self-restraint, but don’t do it right now.
