VERY Old Saying...
Seb,
Latin translation:Vis / Vigor / Fortitudo...
Explanation:
Dear Seb,

the general "force" in the sense of strenght is vis or vigor (or fortitudo).

Though, if it refers to MENTAL or INTELLECTUAL force, please say "vis ingenii". Vis is generally violent, corporal strenght.

Hope it helps :)
