Latin phrase

by Rhiane

Dear Latin Teacher,

I'm looking to get a tattoo and was wondering if you would have the translation for 'from struggle I emerge'.
Many thanks!

Dear Rhiane,

There's a famous Latin phrase with this basic meaning: luctor et emergo. It means "I struggle and emerge". The verb luctor means literally "I wrestle".

If you want yours to say literally "From Struggle I Emerge", then you might try e laboro emergo.

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