Find out which poets the ancients frequently quoted and the ups and downs of their feelings for the goddess Venus.
Quisquis amat veniat. Veneri volo frangere costas
fustibus et lumbos debilitare deae.
Si potest illa mihi tenerum pertundere pectus,
quit (cur) ego non possim caput illae frangere fuste?
Whoever loves, may he come. I want to break Venus' ribs with clubs and incapacitate the goddess' loins. If she can pierce my tender heart, why can't I break her head with a club?
