Luscious roses, gold jewelry, green dragonflies... A Latin quote from the didactic poem “De Rerum Natura” by Roman philosopher Lucretius:

"...sed nihil dulcius est, bene quam munita tenere

edita doctrina sapientum templa serena,

despicere unde queas alios passimque videre

errare atque viam palantis quaerere vitae,

certare ingenio, contendere nobilitate,

noctes atque dies niti praestante labore

ad summas emergere opes rerumque potiri.

o miseras hominum mentes, o pectora caeca!"

-----

"...nothing is more blissful than to occupy

the heights effectively fortified by the teaching of the wise, tranquil sanctuaries

from where you can look down upon others and see them

wandering everywhere in their random search for the way of life,

competing for intellectual eminence, disputing about rank,

and striving night and day with prodigious effort

to scale the summit of wealth and to secure power.

O minds of mortals, blighted by your blindness!"
