The stan­dard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is repro­duced below for those inter­ested. Sec­tions 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bono­rum et Mal­o­rum” by Cicero are also repro­duced in their exact orig­i­nal form, accom­pa­nied by Eng­lish ver­sions from the 1914 trans­la­tion by H. Rackham.

Con­trary to pop­u­lar belief, Lorem Ipsum is not sim­ply ran­dom text. It has roots in a piece of clas­si­cal Latin lit­er­a­ture from 45 BC, mak­ing it over 2000 years old. Richard McClin­tock, a Latin pro­fes­sor at Hampden-​Sydney Col­lege in Vir­ginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, con­secte­tur, from a Lorem Ipsum pas­sage, and going through the cites of the word in clas­si­cal lit­er­a­ture, dis­cov­ered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sec­tions 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bono­rum et Mal­o­rum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, writ­ten in 45 BC. This book is a 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.

Rackham.

There are many vari­a­tions of pas­sages of Lorem Ipsum avail­able, but the major­ity have suf­fered alter­ation in some form, by injected humour, or ran­domised words which don’t look even slightly believ­able. If you are going to use a pas­sage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t any­thing embar­rass­ing hid­den in the mid­dle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum gen­er­a­tors on the Inter­net tend to repeat pre­de­fined chunks as nec­es­sary, mak­ing this the first true gen­er­a­tor on the Inter­net. It uses a dic­tio­nary of over 200 Latin words, com­bined with a hand­ful of model sen­tence struc­tures, to gen­er­ate Lorem Ipsum which looks rea­son­able. The gen­er­ated Lorem Ipsum is there­fore always free from rep­e­ti­tion, injected humour, or non-​characteristic words etc.

    Usu­ally I don’t learn post on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-​up very pres­sured me to check
    out and do it! Your writ­ing style has been sur­prised me.

    Thank you, quite great post.

    Hi there, con­stantly i used to check web­site posts here

    I’ve been surf­ing online more than three hours today, yet
    I never found any inter­est­ing arti­cle like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    Per­son­ally, if all web­site own­ers and blog­gers made good con­tent as you did,
    the inter­net will be a lot more use­ful than ever before.

    Ter­rific post how­ever I was want­ing to know
    if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very grate­ful if you could elab­o­rate a lit­tle
    bit more. Kudos!

    Have you ever con­sid­ered about adding a lit­tle bit more than just your arti­cles?
    I mean, what you say is impor­tant and every­thing. Nev­er­the­less imag­ine if you
    added some great graph­ics or videos to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your con­tent is excel­lent but with images and clips,
    this site could cer­tainly be one of the best in its field.
    Great blog!

    well clear their motive, and that is also hap­pen­ing with this para­graph which I am read­ing now.

    First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick ques­tion that I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was curi­ous to know how you cen­ter
    your­self and clear your mind before writ­ing.
    I’ve had trou­ble clear­ing my mind in get­ting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take plea­sure in writ­ing how­ever it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 min­utes are usu­ally lost just try­ing to fig­ure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!

    I seri­ously love your blog.. Excel­lent col­ors & theme. Did you

    or exactly what the theme is named. Thanks!
