“I Hate and I Love”


Modern bust of Catullus on the Piazza Carducci in Sirmione

Odi et amo. Quare id faciam, fortasse requiris.
                            Nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.

                                                                    (Catullus, Poems, 85)


          I hate and I love. Why I do this perhaps you ask.
             I do not know, but I sense that it happens and I am tormented.
