Veni, Vidi, Vici
I remember reading The Gallic Wars by Julius Caesar in Latin in Grade 10. The above-noted statement cannot be found there. (And for those whose Latin is a bit rusty, it means “I came, I saw, I conquered.”)
(‘Veni, vidi, vici is a Latin phrase popularly attributed to Julius Caesar who, according to Appian, used the phrase in a letter to the Roman Senate around 47 BC after he had achieved a quick victory in his short war against Pharnaces II of Pontus at the Battle of Zela’).Gumshoe News
