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.

CONCORDE.

Marcque de Concorde.

Corneilles hont merveilleuse concorde,
Leur foy jamais d’ensemble ne discorde.[1]
Sceptres des Roys portent de telz oyseaux,
Car par accord Princes sont bas, ou haulx,
Lequel tollu discordes, & desroys,
Viennent soubdain, tirans la mort des Roys.

C’est ce que Micipsa en Saluste dict, que par concor-
de les petites choses croissent. Et les grandes (com-
me Royaumes & Roys) deschéent par discorde.

Notes:

1.  See Aelian, De natura animalium 3.9. on the mutual love and loyalty of crows.
