Explanation:
"Nor is there anyone who loves pain itself because it is pain."

Hi Katherine,

This quote does appear lots of times within publisher editing programs, printer tests...followed by lots of junk words. Some say it's nonsense, other attribute it to Cicero. Lorem is most surely a truncation of "dolorem". The above is the standard translation (from the good source) of that Cicero line so it's the nearest thing you can get out of it.

Lots of luck!

Flavio
