Latin LOLCat: Hatred and Fear

Here is today's Latin LOLCat. If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check out the Bestiaria Latina blog. This saying was supposedly favored by the Roman emperor Caligula - see Suetonius's Life of Caligula in English at Lacus Curtius.

Oderint, dum metuant.

Let them hate, so long as they fear.
