Praise of Folly

“…And as for such my companions and followers as you perceive about me, if you have a mind to know who they are, you are not like to be the wiser for me, unless it be in Greek: this here, which you observe with that proud cast of her eye, is Philautia; she with the smiling countenance, that is ever and anon clapping her hands, is Kolakia; she that looks as if she were half asleep is Lethe; she that sits leaning on both elbows with her hands clutched together is Misoponia; she with the garland on her head, and that smells so strong of perfumes, is Hedone; she with those staring eyes, moving here and there, is Anoia; she with the smooth skin and full pampered body is Tryphe.”

Erasmus of Rotterdam, Praise of Folly
