I've searched the meaning of this sentence, yet tright here are tiny variations of it.
You are watching: What does vincit qui se vincit mean
A "shortened" version of it:
Bis vincit qui se vincit
meaning: Twice conquers who conquers himself.
Or, my own interpretation: Who conquers himself, will certainly overcome (or be victorious) twice.
But now the complete sentence:
Bis vincit qui se vincit in victoria
meaning: He conquers twice that conquers himself when he is victorious
I don't understand why this "when" is added, and why it TOTALLY changes the meaning of the original sentence.
Does this mean something like: Who conquers himself after/when winning a battle, will overcome (or be victorious) twice. (?)
It sounds favor somepoint is/have to be done DURING battle / being victorious in order to 'conquer' yourself.
But this is completely different from the initially sentence. That deserve to be true, sure, however I constantly believed that the first sentence (the shortened) organized rather the very same definition...

In Victoria more or much less indicates "in the minute of victory" yet again, we can't ask him what he really means by that, so it's open to interpretation.
Is this from OFF?

In its basest because, I think it was intfinished to intend not to be a 'sore winner', or excessively prideful at an opponent's downloss or misfortune.
I choose the shortened version and your interpretation of it, in terms of basic adages to toss roughly in one's head. Self-mastery is more appealing and generally applicable as a idea than to stop gloating in victory, imo.
