aveo

Τὰ πάντα ῥεῖ καὶ οὐδὲν μένει -> Everything flows and nothing stands still
Heraclitus

Latin > English (Lewis & Short)

ăvĕo: (or, acc. to Quint. 1, 6, 21, hă-vĕo; cf. Spald. ad l. l. and Schneid. Gr. 1, p. 185), ēre, v. n. v. 1. aveo init.,
I to be or fare well; except once in Mamert., used only in the imper. ave, aveto, avete, and inf. avere, as a form of salutation, both at meeting and separating, like salve and χαῖρε (hence, Fest. p. 13 explains it by gaudeo).
I In gen., Hail! God bless thee, farewell! adieu (prob. not used by Cic.): Caesar simulatque, Have, mihi dixit, statim exposuit, i. e. had saluted me, Cael. ap. Cic. Fam. 8, 16, 4: numquam dicis Ave, sed reddis etc., Mart. 3, 95, 1: Ave! gratiā plena, Dominus tecum! Vulg. Luc. 1, 28: Jesus occurrit illis dicens Avete! ib. Matt. 28, 9.— In mock homage (eccl. Lat.): dixit Ave! Rabbi, Vulg. Matt. 26, 49; 27, 29; ib. Marc. 15, 18; ib. Joan. 19, 3.—Haveto at the end of a letter, Cato ap. Sall. C. 35, 6; and Ave at the beginning, August. ap. Gell. 15, 7, 3: Marcus avere jubet, Mart. 3, 5, 10 al. —
II Esp.
   A As a morning greeting (diff. from vale, a greeting at separating in the evening; cf. Suet. Galb. 4: ut liberti servique mane salvere, vesperi valere sibi singuli dicerent): et matutinum portat ineptus ave, Mart. 1, 56, 6; 1, 56, 109 fin.; 4, 79, 4; 7, 39, 2.—
   B As a farewell to the dead, = vale: Atque in perpetuom, frater, ave atque vale, *Cat. 101, 10; and so frequently in inscriptions, Inscr. Orell. 2663; 4732; 4734; 4735; 4742. But in Martial avere is distinguished, as a greeting to the living, from valere, a greeting to the dead: Jam satis est, Afer: non vis avere: vale! Mart. 9, 7, 4. And thus the ambiguity of avere in the anecdote in Suet. Claud. 21 is to be explained: Emissurus (Claudius) Fucinum lacum naumachiam ante commisit. Sed cum proclamantibus naumachiariis, Ave (farewell), Imperator, morituri te salutant: respondisset, Avete vos (i. e. as dying), neque post hanc vocem, quasi venia data (since they interpreted the exclamation as live!), quisquam dimicare vellet, etc.—
   C As a mere expression of goodwill (eccl. Lat.): nec Ave ei dixeritis, nor bid him God-speed, Vulg. 2 Joan. 10, 11.!*? As finite verb: aveo plane Imperator et avebo... cum is avere jubeat, qui jam fecit, ut averem, Mamert. Grat. Act. ad Julian.
ăvĕo: ēre, v. a. from Sanscr. av, to love, to wish; to satisfy one's self, to be content, to do or fare well,
I to wish, desire earnestly, to long for, crave (syn.: volo, cupio): avere nihil aliud est quam cupere, Paul. ex Fest. p. 14 Müll.: ab ludis animus atque aures avent Avide exspectantes nuntium, Enn. ap. Varr. L. L. 6, § 70 (Trag. v. 70 Vahl.).—Constr. with inf., acc., and absol.
   (a)    With inf.: te imitari aveo, Lucr. 3, 6: Illud in his quoque te rebus cognoscere avemus, id. 2, 216: res exponere, id. 4, 778: rationem reddere, id. 3, 259: discedere aventes, id. 4, 1203: Non est mihi tempus aventi Ponere signa novis praeceptis, Hor. S. 2, 4, 1; 2, 6, 99: propiusque accedere aventi figere pectora, Ov. M. 2, 503: valde aveo scire quid agas, Cic. Att. 1, 15; 2, 18; id. Fin. 2, 14, 46; id. Off. 1, 4, 13; id. Div. 1, 6, 11: Jam mens praetrepidans avet vagari, Cat. 46, 7: avet (ara) spargier agno, Hor. C. 4, 11, 7: ipsum L. Paulum omnium oculi conspicere urbem curru ingredientem avent, Liv. 45, 39, 8; 33, 32, 8; Col. 3, 21, 6: avebat animus antire statimque memorare exitus, Tac. A. 4, 71; 12, 36.—
   (b)    With acc.: quia semper aves quod abest, praesentia temnis, Lucr. 3, 957; so id. 3, 1082; 3, 1083: parto, quod avebas, Hor. S. 1, 1, 94: aveo genus legationis ut, etc., Cic. Att. 15, 11 fin. (acc. to conj. of Gronov.; so B. and K.; v. Orell. ad h. l.); Sil. 9, 371.—
   (g)    Absol.: Et mora, quae fluvios passim refrenat aventes, which restrains the eager river, Lucr. 6, 531, where Lachm. and Munro read euntīs: Talem dira sibi scelerisque dolique ministram Quaerit avens, Val. Fl. 2, 123; Aur. Vict. Caes. 3.—
II Avens = libens, Laev. ap. Gell. 19, 7.—ăventer, adv., eagerly, earnestly (post - class.), Sid. Ep. 2, 2; v. Amm. 18, 5 and 19.
