    I know that "Aut viam inveniam aut faciam" means either i will find a way, or I will make one, but can someone translate "I will find a way, or I will make my own?" It's slightly modified, but this is a little more personal. any and all help would be greatly appreciated. thanks so much!

    There is nothing in the Latin to suggest "my own." The translation would be "Either I shall find a way or I shall make one", or "I shall either find a way or make one."

    How about:

    Aut viam inveniam aut ipse viam faciam.

    .... or I myself will make a way.

    Is that close enough?

    Actually, that's great! Thanks so much. A friend of mine just passed and I know he was somewhat into the Latin language. It's basically for a banner used on funeral flowers.
