Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero
Seize the day, putting little trust as possible in future.
Carpe diem? How annoying is that? I wish to 'carpe' the 'diem' so I don't have to plan my life, my career path, or even my family life. I don't have to worry about anything. Can you imagine, if we all seize every single moment of our lives? I bet there will be no doctors. Haha. Who would stay through med school,right? Because all of us would be too busy living our lives. Again, Carpe diem? Really? huh.
Ok, fine. At some points, we have to live a life. We don't have many options about that. I think what Horace really meant was when we wake up every morning, we have two options. To seize what life can offer or to give up.
I wish I can 'carpe' my 'diem' like this again.
