Amendelier, Pourquoy si tost floris?
Trop bons ne sont les trop prompts esperitz.[1]

L’Amendelier est le premier arbre qui fleurit, & cel-
luy qui plustost perit. Aussi les trop hastifz esperitz
(comme dict Quintilian) grand peine jamais par-
viennent fruyct.


1. See Quintilian (Fabius Quintilianus), Institutio oratoria, 1.3.3: ‘the precocious type of intellect never easily comes to fruition’.
