Errare humanum est - To err is human | Errare humanum est is the beginning of a longer Latin saying: Errare humanum est, sed in errore perseverare diabolicum. | About this Latin proverb: What is the meaning? The author? History? What about language and grammar? |
The saying often is falsely attributed to the stoic philosopher Seneca, to his “Epistulae Morales” letter 57.12 …
But letter 57 ends with 57.9!
Errare humanum est!
