English to Latin translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase:failure is not an option
Roman army- England 340-295 BCE
as spoken in 340 BCE
Explanation: literally : failure cannot be accepted
offensio (failure), accipi (be accepted), non potest (cannot)
the construction of latin sentences differs from the English
for failure in battle (defeat) the sentence would be:
Detrimentum accipi non potest
The sentence comes from Seneca
note: the Roman army was never in England in 340 BC; first time in England 58/51 BC
