Par tout on sent les espines poignantes,
Et ne peut nul, fors Dieu, les amortir:
Mais dans le lict sont plus qu’ailleurs piquantes:
Car de plus pres elles se font sentir.
Parler en peut, & au vray, sans mentir,
Qui a gousté que vaut affliction:
Mais ceste-ci fait le coeur hors partir,
Quand pour amour on rend oppression.

PATIENTIA VINCIT OMNIA

Patience/Endurance conquers all

c.

Undique discordes animi, discordia toto
Orbe viget, lato, veh, nimis imperio:
Sed nusquam mage obest, thalamo quam fixa jugali,
Hic ubi perpetuum vivere debet Amor.

Everywhere, minds are in disagreement; disagreement flourishes throughout the world, alas! too widely over the breadth of the kingdom: but nowhere is it more harmful than in the marriage bed, here where eternal Love ought to live.

Notes:

1.  The French poem has been corrected. This text was wrongly printed in emblem number 98 ([FMOb098]), and vice versa.
