Help translate please! "All that I am"

Postby timmy1729 » Wed Oct 08, 2008 5:13 pm

Could someone please translate "All that I am" into Latin? I am going to use it as a blog name since it is about me and I couldn't think of anything else.

So far I've looked up each word and came up with "quicumque sum."
I don't think that sounds correct, though.

Salve timmy1729
"quod sum" = "all that I am/so much as I am" and "what I am", of course.
Less is more in Latin.
Parum multum est latiné.
Also "quantumcunque/quicquid/quantùm/quàm sum"

Even "Tantus sum" (masc.) = "All that I am" = sort of "Such I am" or "To such an extent I am", I think, but personally I prefer "Quod sum"

I would make the relative plural though, i.e. "omnia quae sum."
