Che si deve perseverar nelle imprese malagevoli.

One must persevere in difficult undertakings.


A chi la preme, l’honorata palma
Fa di se un’arco; e ne solleva poi,
E con impeto al ciel leva la salma.
Fanciullo ascendi, e stringi i rami suoi:
Che di che frutti t’emperai le mani,
Ch’ornan le mense, e rari son fra noi.
Non fian, si soffri, i tuoi sudori vani.

Que se Ó de resisitir Ó lo que appremia.

Ottava rhima.

Quanto de mayor carga es opprimida
La palma, tanto mas resiste y se alša
Y lleva fruta dulce y escogida.[1]
Aquesta fruta tu Christiano alcanša,
Que el que paciente fuere en esta vida
Que por suffrir en la otra mas se ensalša
D’este contraste el pręmio merecido
AcanšarÓ por el trabajo avido.

Notes:

1. áThe reaction of palm to a heavy weight is mentioned in various ancient sources, e.g. Pliny, Natural History 16.81.223; Aulus Gellius, Noctes Atticae 3.6.
