Every now and then I get requests like this one.


I want to put a Latin message on my daughter’s Graduation sign for our yard.  Do you have any ideas?


Here is my reply:

How about

Per aspera ad astra.” It means, to the stars through difficulties.

Or, “Excelsior,” meaning, “higher.”

Or, the quote I live by, “Aut viam inveniam aut faciam,” meaning “either find a way or make one.”

Or, “Nulli secunda,” second to none.

Or, “Qui audet adipiscitur,” whoever dares, wins.

There is also this enormous quote by Cicero:

Quod bonum, faustum, felix fortunatumque sit.  May the outcome be good, propitious, lucky and successful.’

Congratulations, by the way.
