Souffre, & abstien.

Fortune adverse à l’homme est à porter,
Fortune heureuse est souvent à doubter.
Souffre, & abstien. Maint mal fault soustenir
(Dict Epictete) Et de plus s’abstenir:
Ainsi le Boeuf tant fort soufre l’estache.
Ainsi s’abstient de couvrir pleine vache.

Le Toreau endurant la servitude à l’homme moins
fort que luy & se abstenant de la vache empreincte,
donne exemple de, patience, & abstinence.

Notes:

1.  Faunus is here equated with Pan, the half-goat rustic god ([A56a277]), accredited with the invention of the horn or military trumpet, and responsible for unexplained ‘panic’ terrors seizing man and beast, especially on the battle-field and in wild lonely places. See Erasmus, Adagia 2603, Panicus casus.
