Hi what the proverb
Thanks in advance.
the correct sentence is "ai POSTERI l'ardua sentenza" and it basically means that those who will come after us (the descendants) will decide if something we did was right or wrong, because they will see the effects...
It's not a proverb...it is a verse from Alessandro Manzoni's Il cinque Maggio.
It is for posterity to judge.
is this the English version of the poem or did you translate it yourself?
It seems to me that ardua (difficult) is not rendered here!
Separate names with a comma.
