Hallo alle!

I'm stumped on a complicated question, but I know it's not that tricky.  My Latin education is just getting in the way.

I'm giving The Intellectual Devotional to my boyfriend as a gift.  We both speak German, and I want to write in the front something like "May you always be a know-it-all."

I get how optative subjunctive works, but I've only seen it in third person and with God.  How would I go about saying something like that?  Would I just say "sei immer der Besserwisser?"  That sounds strange to me.

Thanks in advance!
