  • A poem by ancient Roman poet Catullus: 
Let's live and love,
caring less than nothing for
the moralizing of stern old men.
The sun sets and rises back again,
but an eternal night of sleep awaits us
when our brief light turns to darkness.
Give me a thousand kisses, and a hundred more.
Then a thousand, and another hundred.
And then more thousands and hundreds.
Let's scatter them, then,
so that no one can envy us
by knowing how many kisses we have shared.
