The French.

My French is still pretty appalling after thirty years, although perhaps not quite so bad as I sometimes think. I do mostly get the gist of it.

But oh my goodness, I caught a really good one yesterday.

Jamais Vaincu.

I had a bit of a problem with Google because I didn’t know how to spell it, so I used a bit of common sense related to the circumstances in English.

This didn’t help either.

Never Die? Nope. Never Give Up.? Nope to that as well.

I did get there in the end.

It means, “Never be Defeated.” This is so me that I could hardly believe what this glorious statement means. This is everything that I am.

And could be you all as well.

Jamais Vaincu.
