Carpe diem

So Theresa May decided to end her first keynote Tory Conference speech as Prime Minister by quoting Horace and saying 'Seize the Day". I'm all for classical references, but did Mrs May know the full quote?

carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero. ("Seize the day; put very little trust in tomorrow.") 

(Odes I.11)

That'll be Brexit in a nutshell.
