Hi, What is the best and shortest/makes most sense way to say "Know Thyself" in Latin. I've heard te nosce, nosce te ipsum, temet nosce and a few other ways and I was wondering what is the most common and best way for it to be said or written if it were to be tattooed on the body. Thanks so much!
The most common Latin form of this phrase is nosce te ipsum. The original is Greek, however. See a previous post for γνῶθι σεαυτόν
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
