Domine, fac ut desideram magis quam perficiere possum


Explanation:
Hi Chad,

this is how I would say it in Latin, though there are many more ways. By the way, it is a quote from Michelangelo Buonarroti and the original is in Ancient Italian (thoguh I can't find it!). What about looking for that one?

Hope this helps, though!

Domine: vocative (O Lord)
fac ut desideram : that I may wish (subjunctive)
magis quam: more than
perficiere possum: I can bear/accomplish

Ciao! Flavio
