Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undeniable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance.
