Latin to English Translation: "I Celeriter Tempus Deficit"

 
 
Reply Thu 12 May, 2005 04:54 am
I found the phrase "I Celeriter Tempus Deficit" on a patch and I'm trying to learn what it means.

My vague memory of Latin yields a general translation (though I don't know what to think about the word "I") but I'd like to know its precise meaning.

Can anyone help?
thanks,
MTW

I think it could be ii... The prhase would mean:

Go fast, time is short

I believe the imperative singular of ire (to go) is i.

Was your "general translation" along those lines?

...indeed,

I was thinking that it was something like "Go fast, time is limited".

Thanks again.
