This sounds very much like the "Romans Go Home" bit from Monty Python's Life of Brian.

> "Infans dormiens nunquam movere"

Got curious as to what that meant, and asked my dad to translate it.
His translation was:

"A sleeping infant never to move."

He wondered if you meant:

"Infans dormiens nunquam movet."
or
"Infans dormiens numquam movet." (pre-Augustan)

Translated as:

"A sleeping infant never moves."
