Aut Viam Inveniam Aut Faciam
I was feeding my appetite for history recently, when I began reading the stories of the great Carthaginian commander, Hannibal, when he spoke the above. The Latin to English translation is "I will either find a way or make one." He is credited with this response when his generals told him it was impossible to cross the Alps into Italy, by elephant, during the Second Punic War (around 218 BC). This turned out to be one of Hannibal's greatest achievements in a military career that earns him praise today as one of history's great strategists.
