gather ye rosebuds while ye may


Explanation:
This Latin phrase may be left as it is, but it's meaning is:
"never put off till tomorrow that which can be done today".

The poet George Herbert wrote a Carpe Diem poem which I quote briefly for you....and which is often used instead of saying Carpe Diem.
