Carpe Diem Necklace
Seize the day or it just might seize you!
Inscribed in Latin: Carpe diem, meaning 'seize the day,' with the symbols of the Roman days.
Quintus Horatius Flaccus, born in 65 BCE, better known as Horace, is among the greatest of the Roman poets. His quotation from The Odes, Book I.11 'dum loquimur, fugerit invida aetas: carpe diem quam minimum credula poster,' or 'While we speak, envious time will have already fled: seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the next,' reaches across the centuries to inspire us today. The symbols and names of the days of the week are another reminder that time is passing day by day.
