cras amet qui nunquam amavit; quique amavit, cras amet

May he love tomorrow who has never loved before; And may he who has loved, love tomorrow as well

Notes

It's the refrain from the 'Pervigilium Veneris', a poem which describes a three day holiday in the cult of Venus, located somewhere in Sicily, involving the whole town in religious festivities joined with a deep sense of nature and Venus as the "procreatrix", the life-giving force behind the natural world.
