The Latin club is going “old school” and returning to a classic shirt design. The message “Carpe Diem” (Seize the Day!) is as meaningful today as it was 2000 years ago…
The phrase carpe diem appears in Horace’s Odes (I.11) as part of the injunction “carpe diem quam minimum credula postero,” which can be translated as “pluck the day, trusting as little as possible in the next one.” Carpe diem has, however, become better known by a less literal translation: “seize the day.”
