I knew what Carpe Diem meant, but was curious of the how and why of it.....after reading the whole explanation, with clarifications of the literal translation, the one thing from now on that will come to mind when i hear the phrase, is that Lord Byron was a womanizer!!! ( LOL! i just love to read. Oh, the surprises you find when you read! People just don’t know what they are missing!!)

Why is it that the brain keeps the one worthless tidbit of information that eventually will pop back up at exactly the wrong time and make you laugh inappropriately!!!!??? I am going to go with something along the line of keeping life interesting.....in which case, i lead an extremely interesting life!

Craig said the explanation was too long ...so i cut to the chase here........men!!!!! :p

 

The noble George Gordon Noel, sixth Baron Byron, is better known as a womaniser than as a Latin scholar, but he was well versed in the language and was a Horace aficionado. He was taught Latin as a child by the son of his bootmaker and went on to write his version of Horace's Ars Poetica (The Art of Poetry), as 'Hints from Horace', in 1811.
