Time Takes and Time Heals

Postby jack b13 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 5:42 pm

I am looking for some help in the following translation: "Time Takes and Time Heals" or "Time Steals and Time Heals"

The healing would be more in reference to Cerebral than Medical healing. Could "Lenit" be used in this context? "Tempus et rapit et lenit" or would something else be more appropriate?

Appreciate any suggestions on the translation.

Those words can mean what you say, I imagine, but I think there will be better choices or a better sounding phrase.
Sic possunt significare ista vocabula at malè sonunt, ut opinor.

Forsit haec:

Tempus sumit, tempus sanat.

Tempus tollit, tempus tergit
. = Time takes away, time cleanses (/wipes clean).
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
