Latin/response to your definitions
“Per adversas res fortitudo” points out that it is just THROUGH adversity that we can become strong.
Question: Since latin is so precise,how can we say that it is THROUGH adversity that we can/will become strong (taking out the word just)?
Question: Is there a shorter latin phrase to mean the same thing as "“Ex rebus adversis fortitudo”?
Also, How do you pronounce some of these phrases in English?:
1.”Arduis in rebus fortis"
2.”Per ardua fortitudo”
3.The LITERAL MEANING of ”Arduis in rebus fortis ” is :”Strong IN (Latin, IN) difficult things“, that is to say exactly: “Strong THROUGH difficulties” since he who is strong IN difficulties has become strong just TROUGH difficulties.
So, the TRUE MEANING of ”Arduis in rebus fortis" is just "Strong THROUGH difficulties".
Question: Is there a "Strong THROUGH Adversities?(since he who is strong IN adversity/adversities has become strong just THROUGH adversity/adversities)
Once Again, I appreciate all of your help.
Please note that:
1-in “Per adversas res fortitudo” (literally, “Strength through unfavourable/ calamitous things”, i.e. "Strength through adversity/adversities”) it is the preposition PER (=through) that denotes that it is THROUGH adversity that we can become strong.
2-a shorter Latin phrase that means the same thing as "Ex rebus adversis fortitudo” could be: ”Fortitudo ex adversitate “ or “Ex adversitate fortitudo” where ADVERSITATE is the ablative case of ADVERSITAS (3rd.declension) meaning “adversity” which is equivalent to “unfavourable/ adverse /calamitous things”.
3-“Adversis in rebus fortis” means either “Strong tHROUGH adversities” or “Strong in adversities”, since he who is strong IN adversities has become strong just THROUGH adversities, as I’ve already said.
4-as for how you must pronounce ”Arduis in rebus fortis" and ”Per ardua fortitudo”, the only thing I can do is to tell you how each vowel,consonant ,syllable or the entire word must be pronounced.
