Che le buone deliberationi si debbono mettere in opera ą tempo.

Good decisions should be put into action on time.


Ch’esser dobbiamo in ogni impresa nostra
Presti ad oprar, e nel discorrer lenti,
Il pesce avolto a la saetta il mostra,
Che suol nave fermar ne i maggior venti
Questi n’accrescan la prudenza nostra
O voi, che sete a riguardar intenti.
Tardo l’un l’altra veloce e leve;
Effetti, che patir l’huomo non deve.

IN DEPREHENSUM.

Caught.

Emblema. 21.

Iam dudum quacunque fugis, te persequor: at[1] nunc
Cassibus in nostris denique captus ades.
Amplius haud poteris vires illudere nostras:
Ficulno anguillam strinximus in folio.[2]

For a long time now I have been pursuing you wherever you flee; but now you are here, at long last caught in our net. You will no longer be able to violate our power - we have gripped the eel tight in a fig-leaf.

Notes:

1.  Corrected from the Errata.

2.  The rough surface of the fig-leaf made it suitable for gripping slippery objects. See Erasmus, Adagia 395, Folio ficulno tenes anguillam.
