Happy Hallowe’en!

homines in lupos verti rursusque restitui sibi falsum esse confidenter existimare debemus aut credere omnia quae fabulosa tot saeculis comperimus.

We ought to judge with confidence that it is a falsehood that humans can be turned into wolves and then be restored to their own form; or else we ought to believe all the tales which we have learned, through so many centuries, to be the stuff of fiction.
