"Greatness from small beginnings."

Commonly known as a phrase from Sir Francis Drake in the Uncharted series for the PlayStation 4.

Sir Francis Drake was knighted by the Queen and given a ring inscribed with the motto "Sic Parvis Magna" on the outside of it. Nathan Drake found the ring and kept it on a necklace, it'd later become a clue into helping him find Sir Francis' empty coffin off the coast of Panama, and it'd also help him find El Dorado.
"Nathan Drake wears a ring around his neck with the letters Sic Parvis Magna etched into it. Do you know what it means?"

"It's Latin, and it means 'Greatness from small beginnings'."
