Sapere Aude

From Wikipedia: "Sapere aude is a Latin phrase meaning "Dare to know" or "Dare to be wise", or sometimes translated as "Have courage to use your own reason."

It is the school motto for the Tiffin Girls' School in Kingston-upon-Thames, UK, where my mother went to school. Thanks, BW.

  • When I was at Tiffins, it was used in the "dare to be wise." sense. Minor correction:- Tiffins' was and still is a particular kind of secondary school. They have a website.

  • Sapere Aude. When I was at Tiffins we understood the meaning in the "dare to be wise" sense. Minor correction:- Tiffin Girls' School was and still is a special kind of secondary school - ages 11-18 approx. They have a website.
