What, how and why?

You are a graphic designer. You need to complete that design for the proposal you need to send your client tomorrow but there is no content yet. What to do? You can put a dummy text. Enter, Lorem Ipsum.

Whether you are in the printing industry or designing websites, apps, or mockups for anything, Lorem Ipsum is a perfect placeholder text.

It is an improper Latin text actually derived from De finibus bonorum et malorum, a 2nd-century BC Latin text by Cicero.

The original Latin version

This is a common form of Lorem Ipsum:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Lut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officiae deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Where did this come from? You can find the original source in Latin below. It is from the 1913 Loeb Classical Library Edition of the De Finibus, Book 1, sections 32–33.

Bold parts are taken to create the famous dummy text. We also use the same words in our Lorem Ipsum Generator above. Letters in brackets are added to the original source.

Section 32.

English translation

I bet you have used Lorem Ipsum texts for many years and wondered the meaning of all these words. Let's read the English translation by H. Rackham (from the Loeb Classical Library edition).

Section 32. But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing of a pleasure and praising pain was born and I will not give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

Section 33. On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammeled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse.
