Lucretius, On the Nature of Things 1.926-930
avia Pieridum peragro loca nullius ante
trita solo. iuvat integros accedere fontis
atque haurire, iuvatque novos decerpere flores
insignemque meo capiti petere inde coronam
unde prius nulli velarunt tempora Musae.
I traverse the unfrequented places of the Pierides, never before trodden by the foot of man. It pleases me to approach the untouched springs and drink them in, and it pleases me to pluck new flowers, and to seek for my head a garland of distinction from this place, from which the Muses have never previously wreathed any man’s temples.
