(Latin: time, occasion)
Don't confuse this tempo- element with other words that refer to the temples; such as, the flattened sides of the forehead or the buildings used for religious worship or services. They simply have no connection with this element.
2. A severe commotion or disturbance, especially an emotional upheaval.
3. From Latin tempestas, from tempus, "time".
The Latin word originally meant "period of time", which evolved into "weather" and, finally, "storm". Tempus resulted in a neutral condition as "weather", and provided the word for "weather" in modern French (temps), Italian (tempo), Spanish (tiempo), and Romanian (timp).
Other languages whose word for "weather" came from a term originally denoting "time" include Russian (pogodo), Polish (czas), Czech (pocasi), Latvian (laiks), and Breton (amzer).
2. The pace or rate of something.
3. A characteristic rate or rhythm of an activity or motion (by someone or something).
4. From Latin tempus, "time".
A short version of, Tempora mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis ("The times are changed and we with them"). A similar version is Omnia mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis ("All things are changed, and we with them").
Attributed to John Owen who died in 1622, a Welshman known for his Latin epigrams.
