A Lackadaisical Lexicon for Laggard Logophiles
Quisquis amat. veniat. Veneri volo frangere costas
fustibus et lumbos debilitare deae.
Si potest illa mihi tenerum pertundere pectus
quit ego non possim caput illae frangere fuste?
 
Whoever loves, go to hell. I want to break Venus’s ribs
with a club and deform her hips.
If she can break my tender heart
why can’t I hit her over the head?
 
-CIL IV, 1284.
(Latin Inscription)
[]William Adolphe Bouguereau
