Citandus: Rabbitus victorius recurret

The incipit of an entertaining opinion piece in Stuff:

OPINION: The Roman poet Quintus Horatius Flaccus (Horace to his pals), who famously said, as I am sure I don’t need to remind you, “naturam furca expellas, tamen usque recurret”, which translates roughly as “you can turf nature out with a pitchfork but from all sides it will come running back”, would have enjoyed this story, writes Joe Bennett this week.
