Rien ne voyons si clair que le Soleil,
Et cestuy veut sa clarté augmenter:
Ainsi font ceux un erreur tout pareil,
Qui osent tant encore se vanter,
Qu’ils ont voulu authorité prester
Aux saints escrits pour les rendre authentiques,
Et du Soleil les forces augmenter:
Mais tel erreur loge en coeurs heretiques.

QUID VERO AGIS

What are you doing

xciii.

Stultum est in media lumen succendere luce:
Et sudo soli jungere velle facem.
Per se clara patent Christi praecepta, nec umquam
Humani fuerunt indiga subsidii.

It is stupid to kindle a light in broad daylight and to want to join a torch to the bright sun. Christ’s teachings are clear on their own, they never had any need of human assistance.
