L’Amendelier.

APOSTROPHE.

Amendelier, Pourquoy si tost floris?
Trop bons ne sont les trop prompts esperitz.[1]

L’Amendelier est le premier arbre qui fleurit, & cel-
luy qui plustost perit. Aussi les trop hastifz esperitz
(comme dict Quintilian) grand peine jamais par-
viennent fruyct.

Notes:

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

ILEX.

The holm-oak

Emblema. 204.

Duritie nimia[1] quod sese rumperet Ilex,
Symbola civilis seditionis habet.

Because the holm-oak splits spontaneously through excessive inflexibility, it provides symbols for civic discord.

Notes:

1. Duritie nimia, ‘excessive inflexibility’. Cf. Pliny, Natural History, 16.73.186 (tota ossea est ilex, ‘the holm-oak is entirely bone-like’).
