Le mal qui est de long temps amassé
Se vient en fin reduire en apostume,
Puis estant meur & du doigt fort pressé,
Vuide dehors, mais non sans amertume.
Ainsi le vice assemblé par coustume
Dedans le coeur, n’en sort pas aisement,
S’il n’est pressé du doigt vif, qui alume
Le sentiment d’amour ou jugement.

DIFFICILIS EXITUS

Difficult egress

lxxiii.

Compresso digitis sanies ut ab ulcere manat,
Praeque dolore simul luminibus lacrymae:
Sic cùm animi ex longo labes collecta fugatur
Iudicio recto, in pectore cordolium est.

Just as the pus flows out of the ulcer when it is pressed with the fingers, at the same time because of the pain, tears flow from the eyes. In the same way, when the stain which has long gathered in the soul is put to flight by correct judgment, there is grief in the heart.
