tetrastichon.

Sculptor ut quovis simulacrum fingere trunco
Est potis, instructa sic operante manu:
Qui sapit ipse sibi, Fortunam fabricat omnem,
Torquet & ad vitae commoda cuncta suae.

As a sculptor is able to make an image out of any piece of wood, for his trained hand works this way, so a man, if wise enough, can mould his own fortune, and twist all things to the benefit of his own life.

quatrain.

Tout bon tailleur de tout boys fait image,
En les bouchant par art, tant qu’il souffit:
Semblablement, l’homme prudent et sage
Toute Fortune applicque son proufit.
