Greetings to all Latin D members,

Today I would like to have the motivational phrase "Prepare for the Upcoming Man" to be translated into Latin (preferrably Classical Latin) if possible,

My appreciations,
J.M

Hi,

I'm afraid I'm not sure what it means. Can you explain?

Is this from 1940’s Germany?

I think he wants something like “prepare for the arriving man”, which I would say maybe like Para ad hominem qui venit, but admittedly I don’t really know how to form this, I just took from the Vulgate.

You'd need a te in there as the object of para.

Yep. The alleged last words of Hitler. Before committing suicide, so the story goes, he urged his valet Heinz Linge to continue the good fight. When asked for whom he would be fighting, given that it was fairly clear that Germany had lost at that point, Hitler replied, 'Für den kommenden Mann!'

Wow. I'm just genuinely in awe of how he actually is openly just asking for Hitler quotes and Nazi slogans. And to top it off, the very last words of Hitler. l don't even know, it's almost kinda provoking my interest. Was able to guess it perfectly. What in the world could a 13 year old be doing with this? Or, a grown man and his son?

And it's "inspirational".

It's seems fairly close to a line or few (translated) in Nietzsche's Zarathustra around the concept of Übermensch.

Good afternoon

Good afternoon Issacus Divus,
No, It is not. With this phrase I would like to emphasise that 'everyone must preparate for the great progress I am to make as in 'the coming progress of a man',
Thank you as always,
J.M

On the whole, I think I'm less offended by the Nazi association of so many of this poster's translation requests than by his assumption that we're all idiots.

I apologize for the misunderstanding,
I do not comprehend your reactions towards me,

I understand that the quote originates from back then, but my intentions to get it translated do not concern that.

I am only attempting to get the phrase translated as my curiosity for Latin is high and I want to increase my knowledge on it,

But so much of your curiosity about Latin seems to express itself by wanting this sort of thing translated. For example, Meine Ehre heißt Treue, which was the motto of the SS; that one sticks in the mind because your thread was removed, but it wasn't the only one. And then you claim you had no idea your phrases had these associations. That might be plausible enough to give you the benefit of the doubt if it happened just once, but given that it's been a feature of your posting from the start, has the law of averages been repealed while I wasn't looking?

I was aware that the motto belonged to the SS but that does not mean that I am a National Socialist,

That’s true-and Zarathustra is quite amazing-but this is a direct quote, which lines up with his posting history. The lines in Zarathustra that I searched aren’t exactly like this.

Yes, I came away from Zarathustra once I looked at the request a bit more.

I do love that Zarathustra though! I’m gonna get into The Gay Science soon, hopefully. I have to do a lot. I want to study phenomenology with the Cartesian meditations also. Make some music, some narration stuff.
