Hi,I am after a translation from English to Latin for a story I'm writing."Beauty fades but dumb lasts forever."I have tried online Latin translators but it doesn't look right at all and thought I would double check with a Latin Teacher such as yourself.Thanks in advance, Kylie Hi Kylie,Try this: Pulchritudo vanescit, sed stultitia permanet.It means literally, "Beauty vanishes/fades, but stupidity lasts to the end."Something a bit more flowery: replace vanescit with deflorescit, which means literally, "loses its flowers/fades."Hope this helps and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.John
