"sic transit gloria mundi" is not what was said to the roman generals. It is said when a new pope first enters St. Paul's cathedral. The quote which applies to the roman generals is arguably either "memento mori" (Remember, you are only human) or something else I can't remember or (probably) nothing, all this being a legend.

In any case, I didn't want to change anything myself since I haven't contributed anything yet and just peeked in. 00:06, September 26, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I thought it began with Roman generals before moving to the popes. I don't even know why we have a separate article for the House Stark motto.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 00:39, September 26, 2012 (UTC)
"Memento mori" was the phrase a slave would whisper to the victorious roman general according to tradition.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 05:52, September 26, 2012 (UTC)
But a much better, indeed pretty much exact, parallel is given by the proverb "Non semper erit aestas "It will not always be summer." --Mad Latinist (talk) 05:56, May 6, 2016 (UTC)

Does this really need it's own page? Also, should we delete the WiC link? --Gladiatus (talk) 12:57, April 17, 2015 (UTC)

I think this page should be deleted. It's a relic from the Elder Days.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 08:34, April 18, 2015 (UTC)
