Many people think that Lorem Ipsum – taken from the ceiling, pseudo-Latin collection of words, but it is not so. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, that is, more than two millennia ago. Richard McClintock, a professor of Latin of the College Hampden-Sydney, Virginia, looked up one of the strangest words Lorem Ipsum, «consectetur», and began his quest in the classical Latin literature. As a result, he found the source undeniable Lorem Ipsum in sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of the book «de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum» ( «On the limits of good and evil”) by Cicero, written in 45 BC This treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, «Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet ..», comes from a line in section 1.10.32
