"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. 18.104.22.168 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)
