tetrastichon.

Annosam stolidus qui tentat vellere Querqum,
Illa perit, vano seque labore premit:
Errore ab veteri populum traducere tentans:
Hoc facit in capitis maxima damna sui.

He who tries to uproot an ancient oak is a silly fool: she perishes, and he harms himself with empty labour. He who tries to lead the people away from long-established error does so amid the greatest danger to himself.

quatrain.

Qui transplanter un viel chésne pretend,
Il tue l’arbre, & du tout perd sa peine:
Qui d’abolir un viel erreur entend,
Il se morfond, & prend mort pour estreine.
