James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Petronius
 
  Animus quod perdidit optat / Atque in præteritâ se totus imagine versat—The mind yearns after what is gone, and loses itself in dreaming of the past.  1
  Mundus universus exercet histrionem—All men practise the actor’s art.  2
  Necesse est cum insanientibus furere, nisi solus relinqueris—You must be mad with the insane unless you wish to be left quite alone.  3
  Vera redit facies, dissimulata perit—Our natural countenance comes back, the assumed mask falls off.  4
