jdege, "Ea vincit"? If memory serves, I think that that means "she conquers." But I'm guessing that you meant something else, and it totally went over my head. Help me out!

Mark, we used to say, "Lend me your ears, and I'll give them back next week."

It's from Robert Heinlein's "The Notebooks of Lazarus Long":

"I came, I saw, she conquered. (The original Latin seems to have been garbled.)"
