For our Latin Scholars (OT Question)

The noble Order of the Knights of Jubal traces its origins back to the Year Two Thousand A.D., when a group of distinguished persons of good and true character, founded the order to promote chivalry and honour. The order takes its name from our leader, Alexander Jubal McRae, who on two (so far) occasions has been seriously injured, in one case fatally, defending an innocent woman from attackers.

Question being this: <P>How would one say 'place of thought' in Latin? <P>Second, how would one say 'fire' in the same language?<P>------------------

hey,<P>I would have no clue but i also have a question for our latin scholars. How do you say "Bigger is Better" in latin. I finally found my family's crest, but there doesn't seem to have a motto, so i figure to add my own (It was my quote for the yearbook and it fits) If anyone can figure it out, that would be great
