David Wilezol’s lesson for Latin Tuesday:
“Forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit.” – Virgil, Aeneid, 1.203
“Perhaps one day these things will even be a pleasure to remember.”
Aeneas speaks these words to his men after they are shipwrecked. It is an encouragement to consider that tough circumstances don’t always seem so painful years after you go through them. They can, in time, actually be a fond memory of perseverance and guts.
