>>>Welcome to a2k, Moebius and Warren Gaebel.
So I'm writing a short-fiction shameless rip-off of Arthur Conan Doyle style stories about a murder mystery set in one of the historical secretive Hellfire Clubs (don't judge me
The story will contain two invented Latin phrases, one written and the other as dialogue.
I need a Latin inscription for the Club entrance. I'm thinking Pleasure forever imminent
. My best guess is Voluptas imminere perpetua
...with the verb in the infinitive.
I'm wondering how to say May pleasure be forever imminent
but I can't seem to figure out how to say May x be y
in Latin since I'm not sure what a blessing is grammatically. But I think that would make a better motto.
The other latin phrase is Follow the carrot to the stick
as a joke on the old detective's adage to follow the money to the source. My best guess is Sequere (active present imperative) carota (nominative case) ad virga
Any thoughts are mucho appreciated
