Lucretius, de Rerum Natura, 2.1026-29

“But no thing is so simple that it is not initially rather difficult to believe, and similarly, there is nothing so great and amazing, that everyone will not gradually cease to wonder at it.”

sed neque tam facilis res ulla est quin primum
difficilis magis ad credendum constet, itemque
nihil adeo magnum neque tam mirabile quicquam,
quod non paulatim minuant mirarier omnes.
