Signature Questions
 
So, didn't know where to post this so...... here ya go. I have sign a few signature sections on this sight with the following phrases, one Latin, one I cannot figure out except for a Greek Omega. The Latin is "Amat Victoria Curam", which as close as I can tell, means I Love Victory Management?!? The other phrase is "MOA(Omega)N AABE". Just curious as to meaning/and/or signifigance. Thanks for any explanations.

Amat Victoria Curam

"Victory loves carefulness" (or Victory loves careful preparation)

The other one you see is probably

"molon labe"

Which means "come and take them"

"Amat Victoria Curam" = Victory favors those who take pains. or, Victory loves carefulness.

ΜΟΛ'ΩΝ ΛΑΒ'Ε or Molōn labe!; Greek King Leonidas I of Sparta response to Xerxes I of Persia when asked to lay down their arms and surrender at the Battle of Thermopylae. It's meaning "Come and take them" is often used by pro-gun activists as a defense of the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
