EMBLEMA XVII.

Tota viden’ ventis expandens vela secundis,
Ut perit optato littore mersa ratis?
Haec tu mente notes cui sors aspirat amica,
Haec eadem ne te que vehit unda ruat.

Do you see how the boat, opening out all the sails to the following wind, perishes, sunk, on the desired shore. May you observe this in your mind, you for whom friendly fate is favourable, lest the same wave which carries you along should destroy you too.
