Latin* Culture
(* denotes a culture rather than a country.)

Background: Latin literature is the body of writings in Latin, primarily produced during the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire, when Latin was a spoken language. When Rome fell, Latin remained the literary language of the Western medieval world until it was superseded by the Romance languages it had generated and by other modern languages. Many Latin proverbs were integrated into the Romance languages.

Proverbs from the Latin Culture
We lose the certain things, while we seek the uncertain ones.
Keep quiet and people will think you a philosopher.
Unless what we do is useful, glory is vain.
No gain is so certain as that which proceeds from the economical use of what you already have.
I don't want the cheese, I just want to get out of the trap.
