Same Stars

Eadum spectamus astra,
commune caelum est,
idem nos mundus involvit,
Quid interest, qua quisque
prudentia verum requirat?
Uno itinere non pot
est perverniri ad tam
grande secretum.

We gaze up at the same stars,
the sky covers us all,
the same universe encompasses us.
What does it matter what practical system
we adopt in our search for the truth?
Not by one avenue alone
can we arrive at
so tremendous a secret.

Text by Symmachus, a Greek writer from 384 C.E.

Calligraphy and design by Cari Ferraro, 1996
