help with idiots.....

hi, im trying to translate the following saying into latin,

"encumbered by idiots, we press on...."

so far i have come up with "excorsis impedire exprimabus..."

however, my latin is a bit basic, to say the least. i'm fairly certain this isn't correct, and im particularly unsure of 'impedire'. if somebody could point out which parts are wrong, and why, that would be fantastic.

thanks,

sayre

Nepos' Agesilaus

Can anyone help me out with this sentence from Cornelius Nepos' Life of Agesilaus (6.3)

Namque illi, aucto numero eorum qui expertes erant consilii, commovere se non sunt ausi eoque libentius, quod latere arbitrabantur quae cogitaverant.

For they, by the increase in number of those who were not part of the plan, did not dare to move more and the more willingly because they thought ???? what they had been considering.

It's the 'latere' that's ...

Mortem Vitae Sequens?

Hello,

I was told Mortem Vitae Sequens was Latin for "death follows life."

Can it be translated another way? Also, is it grammatically correct?

Thanks in advance!

elisio

i've recently found interest in facetious* composition and this elegiac couplet that i wrote may be of interest or amusement to some:

inconcinnum incompositumque inceptum Elegiae ora** /
usque eludereque elidereque immodice est.

~D

*facetious is one of the seven known words to have a,e,i,o,u once and in such an order.

**elisio passim would not be so unless interversial elision occurred too!

Translation help please - only 1 line.

Salvete!

I have decided that I would like to have a latin motto to include at the bottom of work emails as a signature. I have done several searches for online translators, but all seem to be from Latin to English, so are not much use to me. The other resources on the web seem to be dictionaries, but, as I have no knowledge of the conjugations of verbs or inflections etc., they are no ...

Latin Noob... Self - Study question on declension of gloria

So, I am on day 2 of my self-study of latin and I am only on the first declension of nouns.

The book speaks of no irregulars for this declension, and if I follow it, gloria breaks down as follows:

Singular Plural
nom gloria gloriae
gen gloriae gloriarum
dat gloriae gloriis
acc gloriam glorias
abj gloria gloriis

Now, to me, the Plural dat and abj look incorrect. If they are correct, how would one pronounce ...

Cruel Dawn

?|{?Ive a decent transation to the lines from Ovid's Amores 1.13.1-10
beginning "Iam super oceanum" ending "supprime lora manu."
I'm sure this inspired the famous John Donne poem "To the Rising Sun"? Any further information?



Thanks cadoro
