#latin phrases

i’m bored, so here’s some latin phrases and sentences i cannot stress my love for enough

  • lux brumalis- “the light of winter”. this makes me think of the subtle change in light between seasons and adjdjckhkck that’s just beautiful
  • alis propriis volat- “she flies with her own wings”. do i really have to explain this one?
  • bibere venenum in auro- something along the lines of “to drink poison from a golden cup”. this makes me think about how sometimes what we perceive as good ends up being pretty crappy. idk if that’s what this phrase was for, but that was my interpretation of it.
  • est quaedam flere voluptas- “there is a certain pleasure in weeping”. i don’t cry much, but when i do, it’s nice to get it out. crying is underrated.
