Bastardo carbarundum

Posted by Beth on June 12, 2008 at 21:21

I love the phrase nil bastardo carbarundum (I realise it is probably an incorrect phrase to all you experts but the sentiment as used nowadays makes me smile). Anyway I mentioned it to a couple of people today, who gave me two others, but I've no idea what they mean (think the meaning of the second phrase is similar). They are

Noli me voca, ego to vocabo

and

Noli nothis permittere to terere.

I'm incredibly curious now and really would like to know. Genuine replies appreciated, many thanks.
