Che la povertą impedisce i sommi ingegni di levarsi ad alto.

Poverty prevents the best of abilities from flying high.


La destra tiene un sasso, e l’altra mano
L’ali sostien; e quanto avien che leve
La piuma ad alto me misero in vano,
Tanto a basso mi tira il peso greve.
Cosi l’ingegno, ch’alto s’ergeria,
A basso tiene la povertade ria.
