It's a funny old life! I do love a little Latin every now and again to put things into perspective!

Don't worry I am not getting all self help(y), but I do seriously think there is so much sense/guidance in some Latin phrases, some of my favourites are: 

  • Dum spiro, spero! While I breathe, I hope!
  • Per aspera ad astra!  Through difficulties to the stars!
  • Perfer et obdura; dolor hic tibi proderit olim. Be patient and tough; some day this pain will be useful to you.
  • Aut viam inveniam aut faciam ! I'll either find a way or make one!
  • Candor dat viribus alas! Sincerity gives wings to strength
  • Aber est quisque fortunae suae! Every man is architect of his own fortune

I hope that at least one resonates and helps in some way xxx
