According to Wikipedia, Carpe diem is an aphorism usually translated “seize the day”, taken from a poem written in the Odes in 23 BC by the Latin poet Horace.
The origin of Carpe diem is as part of the longer phrase “Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero”, which is translated as “Seize the day, put very little trust in tomorrow (/the future)”. The ode says that the future is unforeseen and that one should not leave to chance future happenings, but rather one should do all one can today to make one’s future better.
Are you doing all you can today for a better future or are you hoping the future will somehow take care of itself?
Don’t gamble with your success… make it happen… Seize The Day!
