Ille mi par esse deo videtur

    Ille mi par esse deo videtur,
    ille, si fas est, superare divos,
    qui sedens adversus identidem te
    spectat et audit

    dulce ridentem, misero quod omnes
    eripit sensus mihi: nam simul te,
    Lesbia, aspexi, nihil est super mi
    vocis in ore,

    lingua sed torpet, tenuis sub artus
    flamma demanat, sonitu suopte
    tintinnant aures, gemina teguntur
    lumina nocte.

"Who wants to be consistent? The dullard and the doctrinaire, the tedious people who carry out their principles to the bitter end of action, to the reductio ad absurdum of practice. Not I."
-Oscar Wilde, The Decay of Lying
