capre diem or carpe diem?
'Seize the day' .. to seize is 'carpere' .. day is 'dies'
Here is a Latin - English dictionary for future help:
Note that you need to know a bit about the grammer of Latin to use dictionaries.. for example, to find a word like 'carpe' you'd need to know the 'first person', which would be 'carpo' in this case (I seize). However, this website allows you to use split up the word (car-pe) and gives you multiple possibilities after that. Just try and find the right one. Let me know if you need more help!
Technically, the right quote is 'Carpe cerevisi'...
Separate names with a comma.
