Cicero Laelius de Amicitia » answer
by Researcher, 2016-03-09, 19:38  Spam?  87.112.87...
Hi all,

I'm doing a research project on Cicero's ideal of a 'good man' and am looking for a reliable translation of the phrase "Qui ita se gerunt, ita vivunt ut eorum probetur fides, integritas, aequitas, liberalitas, nec sit in eis ulla cupiditas, libido, audacia, sintque magna constantia, ut ii fuerunt modo quos nominavi, hos viros bonos, ut habiti sunt, sic etiam appellandos putemus, quia sequantur, quantum homines possunt, naturam optimam bene vivendi ducem" from Laelius de Amicitia ch19.

For example, how should I distinguish between 'cupiditas' and 'libido' as I have found different translations of them both as 'passion'?

Or if anyone can recommend the most widely accepted version of this translation, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Probably you already have the answer, but...

-Cupiditas is passion but in the sense of "obtaining something". So a good translation is "ambition" or even "craving" or "greed".

-Libido is in the sense of "pleasure". That is the reason it  usually means sexual passion. So a good translation is "lust" or something like "whim".

ORTUSVVP (the P is mirrored vertically)
by khanzat, 2016-04-13, 20:49  Spam?  92.186.68....
The text in latin is:

A solis ortu usque ad occasum

There was no "u" in latin, only the "v" and you can see all the other differences. Perhaps the person that wrote it wasn't fully literate in latin, because writing ocasum instead of occasum is strange, for example.

And it means "From sunrise to sunset".

There's an article in wikipedia about this motto: Wikipedia(EN): A_solis_ortu_usque_ad_occasum
Two phrases to be translated from English into Latin (Tattoo) » answer
by Kdbasran, 2016-01-23, 22:16  Spam?  5.68.23...
Hi all,

I'd like to get the phrase "Where you go is who you are" translated into Latin for a tattoo and was hoping someone here might be able to help?

I'm also considering the quote:-
"Travel far enough and you will meet (find?) yourself."

Gender: Male (not sure if relevant)
Meaning: Emphasis on how travelling and experiencing new cultures adds a certain depth to an individual which fundamentally changes and further develops who they are as a person, how they define themselves, and how they see the world.

Thank you in advance, I'd be more than happy to answer any further questions as they arise! Note the use of "you" in the first quote is more akin to "one," and is not intended to be directed at an individual (for anyone who knows German it is the same as using "Man" instead of "Du" or "Sie").

I'm looking for a decent translation of the catchphrase from the old Total Recall film in Latin to use as a humorous motto on a video discussing martian terraforming. I know it probably doesn't convert well, but figured it was worth checking before discarding the idea. Thank you!

Latin writing from a work of European art dated 1525. This is my attempt at transcription:


I get the last bit -- "YEAR 1525" -- which I happen to know is the year it was painted.

I'm hoping someone who reads Latin will correct the transcription. So actually, I have two requests. 1-transcription, 2-translation.

Your help would be very much appreciated, of course.
