Origin: Greek [mo'lon la've]
Translation: Come and Take Them!
Legendarily uttered by King Leonidas I of Sparta as a challenge to Xerxes I of Persia in the Battle of Thermopylae, Molon Labe is a phrase of defiance that has lived on through the Millennia. It is the motto of the warrior, a symbol of moral victory, and an expression of strength of spirit in the face of tyranny and oppression. It is echoed in General Anthony "Nuts" McAuliffe's bold response to a German call for surrender in Bastogne, and in Charleton Heston's speech in defense of the Second Amendment ("...from my cold, dead hands!"). Molon Labe tells the world that you will stand and fight!
