Carpe Diem!

Carpe diem is a phrase from a Latin poem by Horace that has become an aphorism. It is popularly translated as "seize the day". Carpe literally means "to pick, pluck, pluck off, cull, crop, gather", but Ovid used the word in the sense of, "to enjoy, seize, use, make use of".

You only live once, make the most of it!


  1. I really did not know that but I'd rather stick to the popular translation, seems more awesome that way.
