Please write a catchphrase of yours or someone you love in these languages. I'm am just trying to build a strong, helpful community. Mine is in Kiswahili, Mnachesa! It is my native language but I have forgotten how to write in it so please help me out here.

Moroccan Arabic Catchphrase : "أعد .. أعد .. كفى" - translation : "Repeat .. Repeat .. Enough!"

why? not in a mean way but, elaborate more.

This catchphrase comes from a play - One of the characters - from time to time - when somebody tells him something - he asks him to repeat twice - and finally says: Enough!
