VINCIT QUI SE VINCIT "He Conquers Who Conquers Himself"

"A pendant that is destined to be worn and weathered."
Part of our Conquer collection.
The front of the pendant features an engraved nautical scene with the Latin phrase VINCIT QUI SE VINCIT around the edge of the artwork, which translates to “He conquers who conquers himself,” which is stamped on the back of the pendant.
The nautical scene depicts a sailor fending off a giant octopus with a harpoon as the octopus attacks the ship. In this example, the sailor has the strength and determination to defeat the octopus only because he has already proven his own worth and ability to himself by surviving life on the sea this long.
A different iteration of the Latin phrase is “bis vincit qui se vincit,” which translates to “he (she) who prevails over himself (herself) is twice victorious.” This could be taken to mean that if you have successfully trained yourself to reject a fearful nature and instead go forward with goodwill and courage, then that is one major battle already won and you are much more likely to succeed in the next external conflict you face. Choose to see adversity as an opportunity to overcome!
VINCIT QUI SE VINCIT
Love it! Quality and craftsmanship is perfect. My son loved it and wears it everyday with great confidence in the power of the message!
Vincit Qui Se Vincit
A high quality item. I like pendants and own quite few. This one reminds me of times spent in treacherous seas and the art of self overcoming. I will probably purchase more items from your company.
A constant reminder
I purchased this particular pendant for two reasons. I come from an old New England family of whalers. I am also a follower of the Stoic philosophers. (or I try to be!) The "Vincit Qui Se Vincit" seems to speak to both things. I'm very pleased to have it around my neck as I write this, as a constant reminder and as a small bit of help in bringing water to places in need.
