De rerum natura

Lucrecio, De rerum natura, The Nature of Things

Nunc age, res quoniam docui non posse creari

de nilo neque item genitas ad nil reucari,

ne qua forte tane coeptes diffidere dictis,

quod nequeunt oculis rerum primordia cerni,

accipe praeterea quae corpora tute necessest

confiteare esse in rebus nec posse uideri

THE INVISIBLE ATOMS

Now listen: having shown that things can not be born of nothing neither, once born, be sent back to nothing, lest my words make you suspicious of your eye’s inability to distinguish the elements first, let me mention other material bodies whose existence you must admit even being invisible.

LOS ATOMOS INVISIBLES

Atiende ahora: habiéndote demostrado que las cosas no pueden nacer de la nada ni, una vez nacidas, ser devueltas de nuevo a la nada, no fuera a hacerte recelar de mis palabras la incapacidad de tus ojos para distinguir los elementos primeros, déjame citarte otros cuerpos cuya existencia material deberás admitir aun siendo invisibles.
