I recently got done reading “An Essay Concerning Human Understanding” by John Locke.
I managed to take down a few notes, and a few quotes i liked.
One of the quotes i liked was from St. Augustine; “Si non rogas intelligo” which is translated in the book as “if you do not ask, I understand.”
However when i try to translate it myself on a free site i don’t get that at all, i get “if you wish not rogas understanding”
And even more puzzling to me is when i try to translate “if you do not ask i understand” into Latin i get “si vos operor non scisco ego agnosco”
Can anybody help me translating “si non rogas intelligo” from Latin to English. Or did John Locke have the translation correct?
