Each man is the smith of his own fortune.
Explanation:
Faber est suae quisque fortunae = "Each man is the smith of his own fortune."
http://www.geocities.com/SouthBeach/3797/quotes.html
or, if you prefer, "Each one is the architect of his own fate". http://www.ncjcl.org/2000/stateinfo.shtml
Appius Claudius Caecus is the author of the dictum.
Dictum arcanum est neutron.= "The secret (or code) word is 'neutron'". What the last sentence has to do with the dictum (if anything) you probably know yourself.

Thanks for getting back so quickly with the answer. The last part "The code word is neutron" is to prove that the cipher was correctly deciphered. It has nothing to do with the first part.
