Latin term or phrase: in iste-pro iste
I was told that this implied that one lives "in that-for that",is this what it says?

in isto pro isto
Explanation:
your sentence is incorrect, it should be: in isto, pro isto
in isto = in that
pro isto = for that
"iste" cannot be used because the prepositions "in" and "pro" require the ablative case which is "isto", while "iste" is the nominative, the case used only for the subject of a sentence
