Frases Catulo

„Suns may set and rise again. For us, when the short light has once set, remains to be slept the sleep of one unbroken night.“

—  Gaio Valerio Catullo
Context: Let us live, my Lesbia, and love, and value at one farthing all the talk of crabbed old men. Suns may set and rise again. For us, when the short light has once set, remains to be slept the sleep of one unbroken night. V, lines 1–6 Thomas Campion's translation: My sweetest Lesbia, let us live and love; And though the sager sort our deeds reprove, Let us not weigh them: Heaven's great lamps do dive Into their west, and straight again revive, But, soon as once set is our little light, Then must we sleep one ever-during night. From A Book of Airs (1601)
