A shortened version of the original Latin phrase "Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero" meaning "seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the future."

Commonly used to justify spontaneous behavior and to make the most out of today, because one doesn't know if they'll live to see tomorrow.

However, the actual phrase is not saying to ignore the future, but rather to do as much as one can now because they won't know if everything will fall into place in the long run.

Benefit yourself now, so it can pay off in the future.

The complete fucking opposite of YOLO.
I should probably study for this calculus exam to help me become a civil engineer, unless I want to end up smoking crack in the back of the McDonalds parking lot. Carpe diem!

A word originating from the Latin language, meaning "seize the day". This phrase has began to be used to as a motivation for people to just seize the day,to stop messing around, and to live life on the edge.
After that talk with coach Consbruck, made me realize that we have to just carpe diem and go all out with whatever I do

Carpe Diem in latin means sieze the day. It is the Renaissance way of saying YOLO.
Teacher: Carpe Diem was a major concept of Renaissance poetry and literature.

High school student (to other student): does she mean "YOLO?"

originated by roman boys when girls didn't want to have sex with them. Meant that we might not be here tomorrow, so let's seize the moment today!
Roman Boy: hey, wanna have sex?
Roman Girl: i dunno...
Roman Boy: c'mon, carpe diem!
Roman Girl: okay!
