@ccourtneyy,
The suns may set and the suns may rise again.
Soles occidant et iterum soles oriantur.
Soles --> suns
occidant --> may set
et --> and
iterum --> again
oriantur --> may rise

Let us live
Vivamus
Vivamus --> let us live

let us love to the moon and back.
Amemus ad lunam et retrorsum
Amemus --> let us love
ad --> to
lunam --> moon
et --> and
retrorsum --> back

@George,
one more?

I promise that I shall never give up
that I'll die loving, yelling and laughing.

I'd appreciate it a lot!
George

@ccourtneyy,
Promitto nunquam traditurus esse
et amans, et ululans, et ridens moriturus esse.

@George,
NOTE: that translation assumes the speaker is male.
If female, substitute traditura for traditurus and moritura for moriturus.

@cheekz85,
In the Latin Vulgate Bible, the Second Epistle to the Corinthians (5:7) reads:
For we walk by faith and not by sight.
Per fidem enim ambulamus et non per speciem.

Adapting that to your requirements we get:
Walk by faith not by sight
Per fidem ambula non per speciem

Please read this.

I see so many great translations that you've done, and I wanted to ask for a couple as well. To complicate matters, I've done a little "research", so maybe you can critique my efforts and repair my poor translations, or just trash 'em and give me more learned and sensitive ones.

Order must prevail --> Ordo debeo praesto

Order before speech --> Ordo ante oratio

How did I do?

@Like2Know,
You did well.
Some corrections, though.

Order must prevail --> Ordo debeo praesto
I would use oportet rather than debeo.
This requires the infinitive of praesto.

Ordo praestare oportet


Order before speech --> Ordo ante oratio
Ante requires the accusative.

Ordo ante orationem

@George,
George, you are truly a marvel, and you remind us that language is a beautiful, intricate thing. I will have Ordo praestare oportet engraved on the brass band that will encircle the head of my new gavel. I promise to use it as sparingly as possible, and will remember you fondly with each tap.

Best Wishes,

@George,
Actually, I was not, but having looked it up, it is certainly a motto to live by. Linguistically, I see the admonition to preserve order as a very singular, personal suggestion, aimed exclusively at the reader, yet somehow I feel that in following this advice, each of us contributes to the whole, giving the final word a more plural context, almost as if it should be vos instead of te. Of course, that's just my own peculiar philosophy at work.

Thank you once again for expanding my horizons!

@Like2Know,
> almost as if it should be vos instead of te.
If you do substitute vos for te, also substitute servate for serva.

And a tip o' the hat for your knowing the difference between vos and te.
