I recall a Latin quotation I encountered some years ago, ex memoria in John Gray's Lawyer's Latin, but I don't have the book to hand and can't find the source of it. It was something to the effect of "My affairs are a mess, but I manage those of others": does anyone have a source of this quotation and it in the Latin original?
