Anybody Know Latin Enough...

to translate this to as close of its original meaning as possible

“I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees”

It’s a tattoo I want to get across my abs (well, when they stop hiding), only i’d prefer it to be in latin, and the online translators are horrendous.

I think you’d be better off getting one that says:

“Douchebag Life”

lol, i hope no one answers this for you.

Lemme get this straight, you want an at least half-assed translation of something so that you can display it across your stomach for the rest of your life? Did I get that right?

Try a latin forum.
