Elevator inscriptions, Latin edition

Spotted scrawled above the buttons today: "Lente, lente, currite noctis equi." Translation: Run slowly, slowly, horses of the night. It's from Ovid, apparently, and quoted famously by Marlowe in Doctor Faustus. Graffiti that makes you think — or Google, at least.
