Attempting to translate "to suffer is to grow" and unsure about proper verb pairings...

"to endure suffer or hardship" and "to become better" or "to evolve"... even when i think i've got it, it sounds wrong. i'm working with a freshman understanding of the language, and could really use some help.

thank you to anyone who has time to chime in!

You'll be better off going to an actual online dictionary like http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/resolveform?redirect=true&lang=Latin or even http://books.google.com/books?id=D1dJAAAAYAAJ if you want the print experience. You can look up possibilities in Latin and then look at their translations into English to see what their ranges of meaning are.

i'll look in to that.
my issue at the moment is that i'm a bit overwhelmed with nuance... even if i've found a verb and connecting word that fits i'm not sure if things fit together properly.

The Perseus dictionary will help with that some, giving examples of different ways the words are used by different classical authors and links to the actual works.

One option would be to find an existing Latin tag, e.g. Ovid's "perfer et obdura: dolor hic tibi proderit olim" (Amores 3.11.7: "Endure and be strong: someday this pain shall benefit you")
