Meanings of "Arcem facere e cloaca"

Croatian

Ova latinska poslovica govori o pretjeranoj reakciji (i o izgradnji utvrda). U svom govoru u ime Gnaeus Plancius, Pro Plancio (95.2), Cicero koristi latinsku poslovicu "Arcem facere e cloaca", tj. "Napraviti tvrđavu iz kanalizacije".
To jednostavno znači napraviti veliki problem iz manjeg. To znači da preuveličavaš važnost nečeg malog i trivijalnog.

English

This Latin proverb is about overreacting (and about building fortresses). In his speech on behalf of Gnaeus Plancius, Pro Plancio (95.2), Cicero uses the Latin proverb "Arcem facere e cloaca", i.e. "To make a fortress out of a sewer".
This simply means to make a major issue out of a minor one. It means that you exaggerate the importance of something small and trivial, that you perhaps overreact and blow things out of proportion.
