That's correct, but it's somewhat ambiguous without context. Perhaps "so that I might love and cherish"MuC wrote:What " Ut amem et foveam " means ?? i found that it means "So that I love and cherish " is true ?
Horae quidem cedunt et dies et menses et anni, nec praeteritum tempus umquam revertitur nec quid sequatur sciri potest. Quod cuique temporis ad vivendum datur, eo debet esse contentus. --Cicero, De Senectute
As Junya says, as a standalone phrase (in tattoos or otherwise) it will be an optative subjunctive (with "ut" or "utinam"): "May I love and cherish."Junya wrote:How about these ?
"I wish that I be bound, or, demanded strongly, to love..."
"Let me please love..."
Nota picta in his verbis sine contextu optativum subjunctivum significet, ubi ut pro utinam adverbio legatur.
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.
