Oh what is more blest than when the mind
Cares dispelled, puts down its burden
And we returned, tired from our travelling, to our home
To rest on the bed we have longed for?

[O quid solutis est beatius curis
cum mens onus reponit, ac peregrino
labore fessi venimus larem ad nostrum,
desideratoque adquiescimus lecto?]

Catullus (c. 84 BC – c. 54 BC) Latin poet [Gaius Valerius Catullus]
