Latin Tattoo: I Struggle But Emerge On Top
by Cable Enstrom
(Cape Town, South Africa)
Dear Latin Teacher,
I hope to get a tattoo in the near future and I want to make sure I get the Latin correct. Please could you inform me how to say "I struggle but emerge on top"? Your assistance would be much appreciated,
Kind Regards, Cable
I struggle but emerge on top might best be translated as laboro sed vinco.
It means literally "I struggle, but I overcome".
Another possibility is laboro sed supersum
, meaning I struggle, but I survive.
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
