Latin to English translations [Non-PRO] Tech/Engineering
Latin term or phrase:non magni pendis quia contigit
Explanation: Pendis is second person singular of the indicative present (you don't give it much weight; pendere is what a scale does)
quia is because
contigit comes from the verb "contingo" and contigit is the past tense, third person singular.
Because it was already attained, you don't attibute much weight to it
I would then turn it around as follows:
What was attained does not have much weight.
