The Pleasure of Being a Latinist

Alain (1868-1951), Alain on Happiness, tr. Robert D. and Jane E. Cottrell (New York: Frederick Ungar Publishing Co., 1973), p. 130:
The more one knows, the more one is capable of learning. Hence the pleasure of being a Latinist, which does not diminish, but rather increases with progress.

Plus on sait, et plus on est capable d'apprendre. D'où le plaisir d'être latiniste, qui n'a point de fin, mais qui plutôt s'augmente par le progrès.
