Latin meaning "greed is the root of all evil". This was a favorite phrase of the pardoner from The Canterbury Tales.

Thanks to Gorgonzola for the addition of the word "all" in the above translation. As you can see, by the way, this is a latin translation of a Biblical concept.

Additional thanks to jmc for the correction of "pardoner" rather than "parson".
