“I’m not much on seizing the day. I just kinda poke it with a stick”

"I’m not much on seizing the day. I just kinda poke it with a stick” is a different kind of motivational saying that has been printed on many images. ”Carpe diem,” Latin for “seize the day,” is from Roman poet Horace’s Odes (23 BC).

“I’m not much on seizing the day, I just kinda poke it with a stick” was posted on Twitter by C’est La Vie Essential Tweeter on January 11, 2015.


Wikipedia: Carpe diem
Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism, usually (though questionably) translated “seize the day”, taken from book 1 of the Roman poet Horace’s work Odes (23 BC).

Translation
Carpe is the second-person singular present active imperative of carpō “pick or pluck” used by Horace to mean “enjoy, seize, use, make use of”. Diem is the accusative of dies “day”. A more literal translation of carpe diem would thus be “pluck the day [as it is ripe]"—that is, enjoy the moment. It has been argued by various authors that this interpretation is closer to Horace’s original meaning.
