I need another translation...benissimus? hehe

this is kinda like a paragraph.

"My love for you is unconditional and undying. I would wish nothing about you to be changed, as you are perfect in my eyes. I would do anything for you, even run through the gates of hell itself. Would you spend the rest of your life with me?"

any help would be fine...her textbook says benissimus is a pro latin-translator, so i guess i'm looking to him moreso. thanks! ...

A Question On Cicero

Hi all,

I have a slight problem with this bit of text from Cicero's 5th Phillipic (42-44):
