Feror ego veluti — sine nauta navis,
ut per vias aeris — vaga fertus avis …
Quidquit Venus imperat — labor est suavis,
quae nunquam in cordibus — habitat ignavis.


“I am derelict like a ship without a helmsman, like a bird along the pathways of the sky … But what pleasant toil it is to obey the commands of Venus, unknown to common souls.”

Baudolino (p81), Umberto Eco.
