Les prudents.

VIII.

Janus au double front, qui ce qui est arriere
Connois, & l’advenir, vois devant & derriere,
Pourquoy as-tu tant d’yeux, pourquoy plus d’un visage?
Pour figurer au vray l’homme prudent & sage.

Commentaires.

La prudence est necessaire ŕ tous, mais principa-
lement aux Princes & aux Magistrats, qui se peu-
vent dire prudents, s’ils se representent les choses pas-
ees, & s’ils prevoyent celles qui sont ŕ venir.

    Que mal se logra lo mal ganado.[1]

    TERCETOS.

    Un comedor milano vomitava
    Aquello de que antes se avia enchido,[2]
    Y que echava sus tripas se quexava.
    Amansale su madre aquel quexido
    Diziendo que porque suyas pensava
    Las tripas ser que de otro avia comido.

    Notes:

    1.  The title is proverbial. See Cicero, Philippics, 2.65.

    2.  The kite was a figure of greed and extortion.
