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 de las cosas altas nasįe la fama.

Ottava rhima.

Nunca los chicos pollos perecieran
A’l platano del ave confiados
Si del duro dragon vistos no fueran,
Digno pues los comio que transformados
Sus miembros marmor (como fué) se hizieran.
Chalcas dize esto ser los diez pasados
Aņos de Troia, con cuya memoria
De su fama se harā perpetua gloria.[1]

Notes:

1.  See Homer, Iliad 2.299ff. for this portent which occurred at Aulis, where the Greek fleet was waiting to sail for Troy. Calchas the seer interpreted the eating of the eight chicks and their mother, followed by the death of the snake, as foretelling the nine-year battle for Troy, followed by success.
