English to Latin Translation: Sieze the moment

by Susanne
(Chapel Hill, NC)

I'm writing a book called Master of My Moments and want to conclude the book with the proper Latin phrase for


Seize the moment

Thanks in advance for your help.


Hi Susanne,

You could write carpe momentum, which means seize the moment, meaning a moment of time (temporis momentum).

However, there is no improving on Horace's original: carpe diem. Here diem means opportunity, chance, moment, etc.

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.

Sincerely,

John
