„Your minds that once did stand erect and strong,
What madness swerves them from their wonted course?“

As quoted by Cicero in De Senectute, Chapter VI (Loeb translation)
Original: (la) Quo vobis mentes, rectae quae stare solebant
Antehac, dementis sese flexere viai?

„With deep sighs and tears, he burst forth into the following complaint: – "O irreversible decrees of the Fates, that never swerve from your stated course! why did you ever advance me to an unstable felicity, since the punishment of lost happiness is greater than the sense of present misery?"“
In hec verba cum fletu et singultu prupit. "O irrevocabilia seria fatorum quae solito cursu fixum iter tenditis cur unquam me ad instabilem felicitatem promovere volvistis cum maior pena sit ipsam amissam recolere quam sequentis infelicitatis presentia urgeri."
