My favorite Latin phrase

Recommended Posts

Guest

Deligo Piscim Cum Oculi Luminosis

I'm thinking of plastering it on one side of my boat. But if I do, then I think I kinda need another phrase to go on the other side. I've considered "Piscoro Ergo Existum". Anyone have any other ideas?

Clayton D,

Let's see how close I can get to translating what you mean.

Literal translation: No illigitmate boat.

What we would say in modern American English: There's no such thing as a bad boat.

My closest interpretation to your meaning: ANY BOAT IS A GOOD BOAT.

If this is close, then I really like "Non Piscim Illigitimi" i.e. "Any fish is a good fish".

How'd I do? I'm not a Latin expert, just enough of a novice to be dangerous.

After seeing your translation it does make sense. I made the mistake of taking "carbarundum" to be derived from "carabus" which is a boat. However, here is your translation.

Non is a negative term such as "no", In this case it works as the word "don't".

The illigitimi are obviously the illigitmate ones or the B--t-rds.

Okay the complex word "carbarundum":
Careo = deprive
Bar = savage (this is the base word for barbarian)
undum: implies this is an action toward you

So the literal translation would be: Don't let the b----rds savagely deprive you.

As you can see your translation works.

Okay back to what to put on the other side of my boat. How about "PISCATOR EXTRAORDINAIRE"?

Your Latin is a great deal better than mine. What I've given is a favorite saying from years past -- to wit: "Don't Let the Bast...s grind you down." Obviously a corruption from the original Latin.

Of course Lucius is where we get the English word "delicious". Esox Lucius must mean "Delicious only when Pickled" !!

I don't remember the Latin for it but the sign in the Lonesome Dove movie that said - "We don't rent pigs" Loved the movie!

Not sure, I made it up. "Carpe" from carpe dium, and the second is the latin word for a walleye. "Sieze the walleyes" sorry if I am wrong, never took any latin.

The Latin phrase from Lonesome Dove was:

Uva uvam vivendo varia fit

Which translated means: one grape causes another grape to ripen

WS, no you had it right, I just wanted to "sieze" the opportunity to equate walleyes with rough fish, you know, Carpe looks kinda like Carp. hehe

"Any fish is a good fish" just comes to close to disparaging the species which consumes my quest, and that's just soooo against my nature to disparage the beloved walleye. I may have to go with:
SOLA STIZOSTEDIUM

Being a Red Green fan as well as a fisherman, this one holds a lot of appeal.

    • and a couple pretty good running backs too!!!!!!!!   bring on the Tide!!!!!!!!!!
    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.  
    • oh the ice is good.....on the 2 lakes i hit. one had 10 inches the other 12!!!!!!!!
    • I just started her up and let her run a bit yesterday.  Wouldn't get out fishing until all the Holiday stuff is over in a few weeks but then the ice should be good and more snow hopefully.  Thanks for the reply over yonder! 🙂
    • What type of solution?    Not it directed at you personally but I find it amusing that by and larger hunters and fishermen are the most anti government anti regulation types yet are the first to overharvest due to lack of self control and then are the first to Beyotch when the DNR doesn’t stop it.     
    • WELL i was just up in  that country over the weekend. maybe 3-4 inches in the woods might be 2 inches of snow on the lakes!!!!!!
