English term or phrase: We dwell in shadow
I think it is from a classical poet, but I have no idea where or who.

Sorry

Latin translation:vivamus sub umbra
Explanation:
Perhaps this is what you mean?
Actually, this means 'we shall live under the shadow...':
vivamus = we shall live
umbra = the shadow
sub = under
It's from the Apocrypha, Baruch 1:12 (see reference no. 1).
For the English, see reference no. 2.

Hope this helps,
Mirror.

Thanks very much, not quite what I remebered - it went something like umbra sumos - though it can't have been.

Thanks anyway.
