Carpe diem

For the last few days I was meaning to engrave something on my latest MV bracelet and I was brainstorming of what exactly. I ended up choosing a beautiful phrase that comes from the last line of a Latin poem by Horatius Flaccus, more widely known as Horace. The poem is in Horace's Odes Book 1, number 11. 

The saying is: "Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero".

The phrase is translated as "Seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the future". Who knows what the future brings anyway? So, seize your day today and have fun!
