Through hardship to the stars?

I thought it was 'per ardua ad astra'...maybe they're just similar phrases...

Many European languages come from Latin and you can see that they are quite similar in certain aspects.

I agree with Marty's hat.

The order shouldn't matter, I believe both are the same and not only "related".

Per - por - par - through
Aspera - áspero - rough (refering to the means to reach something - hardship/difficulty)
Ad - a - à - to
Astra - astro - astre - star

That's why I can almost understand completely Portuguese.

Why is Portugal separated from the rest of the Peninsula? I mean, Castilla conquered/united the rest...

Cos he didn't conquer Portugal. Simples.

I have a question Mil... Why is Portugal separated from the rest of the Peninsula? I mean, Castilla conquered/united the rest...

Sigh...

Apparently hats are too tight and an all-around perspective is only superficial... Not asking again.

I asked because I wanted to know any information about it from someone at least land-related. I was particularly interested in why on earth didn't the Reign of Castilla-Aragon conquered them, why it was recognized first by the Vatican and why didn't Spain tried to conquer them when a certain someone was ruling Spain.

We are waiting Treck :D

The reason we answered that way is because we didn't know. There's no reason to be offended... I was just saying, that the way I'd have found out was to google it.

Best I can make out, the reason was that Portugal managed to establish itself as a nation before Spain did during the time of the rule of the Moors (around 700 AD). This led to 800 years of autonomy, that did briefly come to an end in the 1580s - 1650s, but this was a marriage almost of convenience.

So there, that's a proper answer. But I used wikipedia for it.

One question: why did Marty bring his hat into this? :LOL:

"Through Hardship to the Stars" is 100% correct :thumbsup:

Next phrase is as follows:

Dum Vita Est Spes Est

A little simple, but longer. Have fun ;D

Hope?

Spes echoes "esperance" I think.

Aut vincere aut mori - Vencer o morir (the first word is eliminated as it is redundant in language) - Either to defeat/conquer or die/perish.

Don't forget there were different kinds of latin. For example, the one used in texts and other document, and the other one which was used daily. And, i am not an expert, i am sure than French (like spanish, portuguese, italian, romanian, etc...) come from the last.
