  1. Sint oculi speculum animae; Verba sunt speculum mentis.

    (Eyes may be a mirror of the soul; words are a mirror of the mind) (my Latin is subject to error – caveat lector?)

    That is a wonderful quote. I gather these words mean this:

    1. oculi= eyes
    2. speculum= mirror
    3. animae= soul
    4. verba= words
    5. mentis= mind
