    Hello, I real fell in love with latin but sadly I just can't get a hold of language if I don't use it on daily basis, so I would like to ask somebody more talented than I am to help me with this.
    I have been having small debates recently and it would really help me look cool if I knew how to say this in latin :D (maybe even put it on t-shirt...)

    Reason not feelings

    or emotions...

    whichever one feels better...

    Thanks,
    Ondra

    Hi,

    Ratio non affectus.

    affectus is right ... but it might be slightly clearer to others if you wrote affectiones I think... or if you write affectus with a length on the u: affectūs.

    I know affectus can be interpreted as singular as well as plural, but I don't actually think plural vs. singular makes much of a difference to the idea here anyway.

    It could also be interpreted as "someone tried to use the adjective affectus, -a, -um and failed to make it agree with ratio" :p

    Well, yeah, someone not good enough at Latin could interpret it like that. I don't think that's the sort of thing I need to worry about. Otherwise I'd be doomed to write textbook Latin all the time.
