Bought the hubby a fountain pen for Christmas.

He writes as well, and I'd like to find a (short) quote about writing to have engraved on the pen. Any ideas?

Bonus points for Latin...

What are his writing habits? Would "carpe noctem" (seize the night) work for him? :)

He isn't consistent re: time of day. "Carpe noctem" is more me... :)

Scribo ergo sum.: I write, therefore I am.

Ars longa, vita brevis. Art is long, life is short.

"Scribo ergo su" wins it!

Thanks, Admin! :)

That should be "Scribe ergo sum" -- not su!

Yep; thanks.

I actually checked with a friend who teaches Latin.

Should be Scribo ergo sum.
