Dear Mario,
As requested here's a quick quote (by William Morris):

Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to
be beautiful.
In Omeina:
Tegarion benaku rilde bidu benan augil, du alári benan.
Quick gloss:
Tega: house
Bidu: thing, object. (Best equivalent possibly German 'Gegenstand')
Benan: Be = 'not to be' : -na = 3rd person non-exalted suffix : -n =
relative suffix (thus the whole thing = "which is not")
Du: Or.
That should be enough!

Mike Poxon
