Che si dee rimover l’Ignoranza.

Ignorance must be done away with.


Che Mostro Ŕ questo? Sphinge perche serba.
Faccia di donna, e le sue membra veste
Piume d’augello, e di Leone ha i piede?
Dinota l’ignoranza, che procede
Da tre cagioni; o da intellecto lieve,
O da vaghezza d’i piacer mondani,
O da Superbia, che virtu corrompe.
Ma l’huom, che sa perch’egli Ŕ nato, a questa
S’oppone; e vincitor felice vive.

Che pi¨ val l’intellecto, che la bellezza.

Intellect goes further than beauty.


Trov˛ la volpe d’un scultore eletto
Una testa si ben formata e tale,
Che sol le manca spirto havreste detto,
Tanto l’industria, e l’artificio vale.
Le prende in man: poi dice, o che perfetto
Capo e gentil, ma voto Ŕ d’intellecto.
