The origins of "lorem ipsum..." explained:

Going through the cites of the word in classical literature, he found one that looked familiar. Aha! Lorem ipsum was part of a passage from Cicero, specifically De finibus bonorum et malorum, a treatise on the theory of ethics written in 45 BC. The original reads, Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit... ('There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain...').
