Latin Quote of the Day

Forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit

Translated from wiki.answers.com“Perhaps someday it will help to have remembered even these  things.”, from Book 1 of Vergil’s Aeneid.  It relates to all those  things in one’s life… all those trials and tribulations that occur in  everyone’s life that, at the time, seem insurmountable… but which, years  later, we look back with clearer vision and see as a turning point… a  crossroads, if you will, in our life.  

*Note on “iuvabit”–the  basic definition is “help” (“it will help”), but in this case it means something  more like “it will be pleasant.” A similar thought in English is, “Sometime  we’ll look back on this and laugh.”

Who knows the ultimate meaning of what we now do.  We must merely do it as well as we can. – HT
