Question
Iv been trying to figure out the true meaning of the Latin Phrase "Tempus neminem Manet".Does that really mean "Time waits for no one"?

Answer
Hello, I hope you're having a fine weekend!
My specialty is etymology; the origin of English words and phrases.
However, I do believe that "tempus et nullus speravit"  
 Is the preferred Latin phrase for the English "Time waits for no one".
The very best to you always.
