Latin LOLCat: To Learn

Here is today's Latin LOLCat: This is one of those rhyming medieval Latin proverbs: vultis - multis. The multis in Latin could mean "in many ways" or "for many people." In Latin, you don't have to choose; trying to get that same sense is how I ended up with the double translation below. If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check out the Bestiaria Latina blog.

Discere si vultis, prodest sapientia multis.

If you want to learn, wisdom has many benefits / benefits many.
