Che si dee viver sobriamente’e non creder scioccamente.

One must lead a simple life and not be gullible.


Non esser ebbro, e altrui non porger fede
Disse Epicarmo, e ne vivrai felice.
Ecco l’occhiuta man; che quanto vede,
Crede esser vero, e non quanto si dice.
Ecco il Pulegio, che gia esempio diede
(Herba gentil) di quanto mangiar lice.
Col quale esempio Heraclito prudente
Da gran sedition tolse la gente.
