That would make a good bumper sticker!  It beats the overlong phrase from
Lingua Latina Occasionibus Omnibus:

   Si hoc adfixum in obice legere potes, et liberaliter educatus
   et nimis propinquus ades.
  (If you can read this bumper sticker, you are both very well
   educated and much too close.)
