De la vida humana.

OTTAVA ACEPHALA.

Llora Heraclito si llorar solias,
Que mas ay que llorar aora en la vida.
Democrito, si alguna vez reias
Aora rie, que mas està perdida.
Mientras mas miro, mas con vos barrunto
Como podre reyr y llorar junto.[1]

Notes:

1.  This is based on Anthologia graeca 9.148. For Heraclitus, cf. [A49a165]. For the contrast between the despairing tears of Heraclitus (who withdrew from human society) and the sardonic laughter of Democritus when faced with the folly of men, see, among many sources, e.g. Juvenal, Satires 10, 28ff.

VERTUS.

Marque de Foy.

Soit pinct honneur vestu de fine pourpre,
Verité nue à sa dextre soit propre.
Soit au mylieu Amour chaste,[1] & plus beau
Que Cupido. De rose ayant chappeau.
Link to an image of this page  Link to an image of this page  [B7r p29] Telz signes sont, de Foy, Qu’honneur maintient,
Amour nourrit: & verité soubstient.

C’est l’Ancienne Sabine designa-
tion de la Trinite, avant Jesu-
christ né. Ou bien le vray entre-
tien de fidelite par les circun-
stances d’honneur, & de ve-
rité.
