Per medios hosteîs patriae cum ferret ab igne,
Aeneas humeris dulce parentis onus.
Parcite dicebat, vobis sene adorea rapto,
Nulla erit, erepto sed patre summa mihi.[1]

When Aeneas was carrying the dear burden of his father on his shoulders through the midst of the enemy, out of the flames destroying his homeland, he kept saying: Spare us. Carrying off an old man will bring you no glory; but carrying my father to safety will be the greatest glory for me.

Notes:

1.  This is based on Anthologia graeca 9.163, a much translated epigram. It refers to the celebrated incident of Aeneas’ rescue of his old father at the sack of Troy, carrying him on his shoulders through the occupied and burning city. See Vergil, Aeneid 2.634ff.

De fertilité à soy dommageable.

Prosopopoeie.

Je noyer suis par la cure rustique
Pour les enfans mis au chemin publicque
Tout despoillé de branches, & d’escorce
Frappe je suis de fonde à toute force.
Quoy pis pourroy-je avoir sterile? Helas
Je porte fruict à mon triste soulas.[1]

Avoir des enfans est joye naturelle: mais dommagea
ble, & de grand regret, quand ilz sont cause de la destru
ction, du deshonneur, ou de la mort de leurs peres, &
meres. Comme le fruict du noyer faict batre, rompre, &
esbrancher son tige, & estoc duquel il est procrée.
