Contrary to popular belief, « Lorem ipsum » is not simply random text. It is actually over 2000 years old and it has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC. « Lorem ipsum » comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of « de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum » (The Extremes of Good and Evil) written in 45 BC by Marcus Tullius Cicero. The first line of « Lorem ipsum », « Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet… », can be read out of a line from section 1.10.32. This book was very popular during the Renaissance and it is a treatise on the theory of ethics. 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.
