羅馬唔係一日起好,係句格言,意思係好嘢/正嘢係需要時間嚟整嘅。係由英文"Rome wasn't built in a day" 譯過嚟,英文呢句喺一一九〇年左近由古法文 Rome ne fu[t] pas faite toute en un jour 翻譯過嚟[1]。現代法文嘅講法係 «Rome ne s'est pas faite en un jour»。

John Heywood 寫嗰本 A Dialogue Conteinyng the Nomber in Effect of all the Prouerbes in the Englishe Tongue (c. 1538)[2] 令呢句格言頭一次喺英文出現。寫法係 "Rome was not bylt on a daie"。

伊利沙伯一世有一次用拉丁文喺一五六三年劍橋嘅講話之中,提及呢句嘢[3]

拉丁文嘅現在完成式,間接講法(oratio recta)就咁寫成單獨引句會係 Roma uno die non est condita
