"Vivre sans temps mort et jouir sans entrave" (Live without wasted time and enjoy without hindrance) is the old May 1968 Parisian protest slogan
In the the version above, the verbs are in the infinitive form. Why? Shouldn't it be "Vivez sans temps mort at jouissez sans entrave"?
And while we're at it, shouldn't it be "temps morts"?
I'm looking for natural, correct use of French, respecting historical context. I'm a nerd and I want my tattoo to be right.
