From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- "Odi et amo. quare id faciam fortasse requiris?
- nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.'" 
- I hate and I love. Why I do this, perhaps you ask?
- I do not know, but I feel it happening and I am tortured.
Its declaration of conflicting feelings "I hate and I love" (in Latin, Odi et amo) is renowned for its force and brevity.
The meter of the poem is the elegiac couplet.
