Perfer et obdura: multo graviora tulisti. - Ovid
I just posted this quote in my office. The translation that I have says "Endure and resist: in the past you have overcome much more difficult situations." (If you have a better translation, lay it on me.)
Reportedly, Pope Benedict XVI said these words to the assembled crowds at Rome's City Hall. And it is such a good thing for us all to hear right now.
It is so true.
