Today I learned a new phrase:
Αμ΄ έπος αμ΄ έργον (derived from ἅμ᾽ ἔπος τε καὶ ἔργον ἐμήδετο — an excerpt from the Homeric hymn to Hermes) which the Romans later transl(iter)ated into dictum factum.
The loose translation is ‘action has followed words.’
What an excellent adage!
From the bays of Pearl Coast,
Dive in crystal waters, find a shiny pearl.
