What does "carpe diem" mean?

I hear it said all the time but do not know what it means.


Answer by  technogeek (6640)

Carpe diem means "Seize the day". What that means is that you should take advantage of the time that you have and live life to the fullest or try to do whatever it is that you have been wanting to do now because tomorrow is not promised.

It's Latin for 'seize the day'. It gained popularity after the Robin Williams movie Dead Poets Society. It's meant to be motivational, make the most of every day.
