Precepto de Solon fuč que ŕ la esposa
El membrillo por don se presentasse,
Por ser muy sana fruta y deleytosa,
Y que en la boca suave olor dexasse.[1]

Amygdalus.

The almond

EMBLEMA CCVIII.

Cur properans foliis praemittis amygdale flores?
Odi pupillos praecocis ingenii.[1]

Almond tree, why are you in such a hurry to put out flowers before your leaves? I hate precocious pupils.

Notes:

1.  See Quintilian (Fabius Quintilianus), Institutio oratoria, 1.3.3: “the precocious type of intellect never easily comes to fruition”.
