Cogito ergo scribit

I recently got a CD by Ego Likeness from Amazon, and on the booklet at one part says "a fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi." In my search for what that means, I found this page: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~enigman/latin.html

And apparently "a fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi" means "A precipice in front, and wolves behind," the Latin version of "between a rock and a hard place."

My favorite phrase on that page is "qui scribit bis legit," because it's something all would-be writers should keep in mind. It means "S/he who writes reads twice."
