This was found engraved on a sword in a friends basement. The translations I get spat out from babelfish are useless and make little sense, so I think it is a spanish saying, but am unsure of a similar saying in english?

"Como la pinten brinca y al son le toquen baila"

it means that someone always accepts coming challenges, no matters how difficult they are.
