Hi, I would love some help translating this quote from The Old Astronomer To His Pupil into Latin
"Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light; I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
I have used different online translator sites but have gotten some different variations of the translation would love some extra help as this is going to be a tattoo
TIA

@atalen123,
Put anything on your arm you want. It's not as if some dude is going to walk up to you with a grin on his face and laughingly ask you, "dude, do you know what that means?"

Etiamsi sit in tenebris anima mea, oritur in perfecta luce; astra amavi nimium metuenda noctis.

There are words that don't reflect in Latin - "set" for example. Latin has no punctuation. Also it is easier to get a good translation if you break it into three clauses. That's a loooooong tatoo.

Machine translation is like a joke…
"Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light; I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
Sounds like grand poem…Perhaps it’s worthy of language experts to translate it into any language on the Earth, except Chinese, because piggy can translate it by myself. Haha

Amen.
