<p>Does this mean no brothers or sisters? No siblings? Does it have anything to do with Ver Re Tas?</p>
<p>Not for oneself I believe...</p>
<p>thank you for the clarification</p>
<p>veratas means "truth"</p>
<p>Yes, kwu, thanks! Spelling errors irk me as well. A better motto however is Lux et Veritas. Because, what good is truth without light?</p>
<p>Disclaimer: yes, based on my alma mater, I am a bit biased.</p>
<p>Or in the case of Harvard: VE RI TAS</p>
<p>VERITAS Hope that helps lol</p>
<p>I believe your referring to the slogan of Phillips Academy Andover. It means for the good of others, promoting the theme of the school, which is generally to produce students that will benefit the world and the global community.</p>
<p>Esse Quam Videri</p>
<p>i remember "non sibi" as "not for oneself"
<p>"Non Sibi", Latin for "Not for oneself", is the motto of both Phillips Exeter Academy and Phillips Academy Andover.</p>
<p>it means "not for one self," because on lionlinks we have a "sibe" page that's all about ourself</p>
<p>Oh yeah, Non Sibi Day was yesterday. It was a bust Poison Ivy, Injuries and a skipped picnic. Thanks for the clarification.</p>
<p>In stained Glass at Phillips Exeter: <a href="http://phillips.exeter.edu/giving/thank_you_2010/800x600/Non_Sibi.jpg%5B/url%5D">http://phillips.exeter.edu/giving/thank_you_2010/800x600/Non_Sibi.jpg</a></p>
"non sibi", latin for "not for oneself", is the motto of both phillips exeter academy and phillips academy andover.
<p>oh, the irony.</p>
<p>^^^ Not really. Despite being "fierce" competitors, their origins and their histories have much in common.</p>
<p>I'm sorry I <em>FACEPALM</em>'d so hard when I read the first couple posts</p>
...their origins and their histories have much in common.
