The Latin aphorism Illegitimi non Carborundum, jokingly means, don't let the bastards grind you down. This phrase originated during World War II and was adopted by US Army general Vinegar Joe Stillwell as his motto during the war. It was later further popularized in the US by 1964 presidential candidate Barry Goldwater. And for generations of Harvard students it is the first line of an unofficial school song, and the song of the Harvard Band.
