    Hello, would you be so kind to translate this into latin:

    "Live for the moment"

    In advance, thanks!
  2. Akela dat affluenter

    • Princeps Senatus
    Carpe diem?

    I am pretty sure you've heard this phrase many times before, but it really is the best Roman equivalent of our 'live for the moment'.

    Yes, I've heard it plenty of times, but I thought that there might was a more accurate translation to it, but you're the expert!

    Carpe Diem
    is usually translated as !"Seize the day" a more literal translation is "Pluck the day"
    But as a translation for what you want it is probably the best in Latin.

    • Civis Illustris
    Cygnea, Gena
    Well done for clarifying a question in a 5-year-old message thread
