    The country in the town. [Rus in urbe.]
    Marcus Valerius Martial (c. 40–104)

    The night discharged of all care
    Where wine may bear no sovereignty;
    The chaste wife wise, without debate;
    Such sleeps as may beguile the night;
    Contented with thine own estate;
    Neither wish death, nor fear his might.
    Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialus)

    I do not like you, Sabidius; I cannot say why.
    This only can I say: I do not like you.
