Learning Latin, Circa 1964-5 A.D.

From the 1965 Crosier.   Learning Latin: Susan Powell; Bruce Gallemore and Julius Cinquegrani.

My favorite Latin phrase (and the only one I still remember):

De gustibus non disputandum est.  
The literal translation is:  "In matters of taste, there is no argument."  

But I have always preferred the Mark Twain translation:  "There is no accounting for taste."
