Audaces fortuna juvat?

Posted by C Moon on February 16, 2008

Recently, I was asked what “Audaces fortuna juvat” meant. I myself learned this phrase from my brother, as I never had a chance to learn Latin. I had chosen it to be my blog title, since it is the phrase that constantly inspires me. And I’d like to share it with everyone. The literal meaning is that “Fortune favors the bold.” Only the brave aim for high goals, and only the bold have the courage to stand up in great difficulties with an undaunted soul. Once translated into English, the phrase is so obvious. Only when one tries, opportunity opens up. When one does not try, nothing will change. This is one of those lines that just stick to one’s head and really do ring true. Stagnant water loses its purity. Do not fear and step forward. Then new opportunities will spring up.
