    Default Needing a good motto, saying. quote...ect

    My boyfriend just finished the academy in January and recently got a job a few weeks ago. His birthday is coming up and I wanted to get him something fire related to show Iím very proud. I found a really cool watch that allows you to get something engraved on the back. I was going to get his name, but I also wanted something else on there that was related to fire. So I was wondering if yall knew of a short (Only allow 3 lines with 18 characters each) phrase or saying (can be in Latin) that would be special on there. I would love if it was something about keeping him safe or being proud of his job. Something along those lines. Thank you so much in advance for any suggestions!!!!

    I would credit both of these if I could remember where they originated, but I sho'nuff wish I had thought of them:

    Omnis cedo domus
    - "Everyone goes home" in (dreadful) Latin

    Or:

    I like to plan ahead so I don't have to work just this minute.

    I'm retired. So my perspective has changed.
