tetrastichon.

Ut nisi mercati naturam rusticus agri
Noverit, haud reddet semina iacta seges:
Sic nisi praeceptor puerorum noverit aptum
Ingenium, studiis tempus inane teret.

Unless the peasant knows the land he rents, the seed, once planted, will never bear a harvest; just so, unless the teacher knows the native talent of each boy, he wastes their time with empty studies.

quatrain.

Le laboureur perdra temps & semence,
S’il ne cognoist le port de son terroir:
Le precepteur aux enfans rien n’avance
De leur engin, s’il ne sait le pouvoir.
