"Quid pro Quo"
I would like to add "Tit for Tat" as a pithy English translation. In fact, since that is a corruption of "This for That", it is in fact closer to the intent of the original latin. Old_Wombat (talk) 10:55, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
What about "Quod est Veritas? " ?
- Famous phrase, but probably not originally in Latin, only translated thereto by Jerome (I know Pilate was Roman, but he was governing Hebrews who spoke either their own language or the lingua franca, Greek)) -- and certainly not in circulation as a borrowed phrase.

Quo Amplius Eo Amplius
Does anyone have a source on the description of "Quo Amplius Eo Amplius"? It's described as connected to Borges, Morgenstern, and a "House On Nob Hill", but googling tells me absolutely nothing about any connection between those three terms that's not obviously quoting from this page. And as far as I can tell, it was added to the page in time immemorial (that is to say, it was added on the now-deleted List of Latin Phrases P-Z page which I can't view). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:54, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
