Aut inveniam viam means “Either I find the way”
aut faciam “or I’ll do it”
To be fancier, “I shall either find a way or make one.”
You can remove the word “aut” just like you can remove the word “either.”
It’s a phase supposedly said by Hannibal who is widely regarded as one of the greatest military commanders in history when one of his generals told him that his plan was impossible. That plan is to cross the Alps and he indeed found a way because he succeeded, and that success is now one of the most celebrated achievements of any military force in ancient warfare.
