Motivation from dead language


(Carpi Diem)

Seize the day!

Isn’t that what the old Latin books say?


(Disiecti membra poetae)

Limbs of a dismembered poet!

Writing in disorganized pieces, wouldn’t you know it?


(Si vis amari, ama)

If you wish to be loved, love!

What we desire, but believe we’re so unworthy of.


(Faber est suae quisque fortunae)

Every man is the artisan of his own fortune!

Best done by hard work, not by extortion!


(Transit umbra, lux permanet)

Shadow passes, light remains!

We will celebrate each victory with a glass of champagne!


(Forest fortuna adiuvat)

Fortune favors the brave!

Take a chance on living, not remaining life’s slave.


(Malum quidem nullum esse sine aliquo bono)

There is, to be sure, no evil without something good!

Look close for blessings, hidden in plane sight, in all likelihood.




Just being silly!

I have very ‘limited’ knowledge of the Latin language, so don’t hold it against me!
