A Latin phrase

Here's a Latin phrase. I haven't posted a Latin proverb or phrase recently.

Latin phrase : Aut inveniam viam aut faciam

English translation : "I shall either find a way or make one"

According to Wikipedia: The phrase has been attributed to Hannibal; when his generals told him it was impossible to cross the Alps by elephant, this was supposedly his response. However, Hannibal would have spoken in Punic, not Latin.

The Punic language or Carthagian language is an extinct variety of the Phoenician language.
