Latin LOLCat: Easy

Here is today's Latin LOLCat: The Latin word facilis which you see here gives us the English word "facile" and "facility" and "faculty" - it's ultimately related to "doing" things (Latin facere). So the next time you think about the "faculty" of a school, just think of it as a hotbed of "activity" - according to the Latin, anyway, that is what it should be! If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check out the Bestiaria Latina blog.

Facilia sapientibus cuncta.

For those who are wise, all things are easy.
