One of the more memorable scenes in the Lord of the Ring's movies is the moment when Gollum's two personalities argue with each other, and finally one of his selves orders the other, "Go away and never come back!" So, let's say we are rendering this in Latin. At first I thought it would be this:
Discede et numquam redi!
- However, after thinking about it, even though we say "never come back" in the present tense in English, the returning action would actually be in the future, so should the imperative be the future imperative?
Discede et numquam redito!
In other words, in Latin should it be "Go away and never will you come back!"
- Also, I wonder if discede is the right idiom. Would it be stronger and more appropriate to write:
Abi et numquam redito!
E ut ab et numquam redito!
