tetrastichon.

Inclusum silici ferro non excutis ignem,
Ni collidantur corpora dura priùs.
Sic opus est homini magno contendere nixu,
A falso, verum qui velit eruere.

You don’t strike with iron the fire hidden in flint unless hard bodies clash before. Just so, it is necessary that a man struggle with great effort to dig out truth from falsehood.

quatrain.

Comme le feu de la pierre ne sort,
Sans la frapper du fer par violence:
Semblablement, sans faire grand effort,
La Verité ne sort en evidence.
