"Maximeque reliquiae earum rerum moventur in animis et agitantur, de quibus vigilantes aut cognitavimus aut egimus"

   "Then especially do the 'remnants' of our waking thoughts and deeds move and stir within the soul" – Roman philosopher/statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero in Book II of his skeptical treatise On Divination, which rejects the interpretation of dreams as a means of revealing divine will.
