English term or phrase: Perfect in simplicity
Phrase to write under a very simple set of chinese characters.
Baron
Latin translation:perfecte simpliciterque
Explanation:
The Romans liked to express their mottoes in adverbs. There are two adverbs here: perfecte (perfectly) and simpliciter (in a simple way). The two adverbs are bound together by the suffix "que", which means "and": this is a true and classical Latin phrase construction.
