Phrase in latin please:
"The way is chosen, you (we) only have to follow the path."
I encountered the phrase some time ago (in Latin) and it started with "Lecto" and ended with "eatur". There was somewhere an "it", probably a "via", and another word which was near the begining "requu--- ", which as you can see I don't quite recall. The Latin phrase had approx. seven words in it.
Sense: Imagine Shakespeare had written the outline of a play and had disgarded it. (I know preposterous). Another playwrite (or writing group) is asked to use his (their) skills and imagination to finish the task and produce a final article.
This endeavour has to be couched in terms of a journey hence the phrase.
So you expect someone who is knowledgeable about Latin to show up in this thread with a title like that? Good luck.
I believe you're asking whether anyone knows this phrase.
I am not familiar with it, but will search around.
Can you remember any context?
