    “With great power comes great responsibility” Hey guys, I’m not a latin speaker, but I’d like to get a tatoo of this phrase. So I found this community and you all seem very nice. Thank you in advance.

    I am not sure if literal rendering would make any sensible translation
    This is merely a rudimentary proposal:

    Magna potestas magna praestatione opprimitur - great power is burdened with great responsibility.

    in orbe lacteo
    Perhaps also something like magnae potestati magna bene faciendi obligatio iniungitur though I'm not really sure of the best way to say "responsibility"
