Molon Labe

ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ! (pronounced: Mo-lone lah-veh!  Come and take them!)

-King Leonidas (of Sparta) to King Xerxes’ (of Persia) emissary at the Battle of Thermopylae, circa 480 B.C.

This is on the license plates of one of my motorcycles (the Gadsden Flag themed one).  The wikipedia entry on this quotation is fairly thorough.
