Plautus, The Merchant 71-72 (tr. Paul Nixon):Newer› ‹Older
It is for yourself you plough, for yourself you harrow, for yourself you sow, yes, and for yourself you reap, and for yourself, finally, that labour will engender joy.
tibi aras, tibi occas, tibi seris, tibi idem metis,
tibi denique iste pariet laetitiam labos.
71 occas Pylades: occasus B, occasis CD; item Guyet: eidem codd.; metis codd.: metes Muretus
