Latin Phrase

Dear Latin Teacher,


I know in Spanish Que Sera Sera means "What Will Be, Will Be" and I was wondering if there was a Latin equivalent.

Thanks! David


Dear David,

The Latin phrase you're looking for is quidquid erit, erit.

While the entire phrase is not found in extant Roman literature, the first half of it is found in Horace I.11.

That poem is also famous for the Latin phrase carpe diem.

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

Sincerely,

John
