EMBLEMA XVIII.

Obiectis ventos foribus, clausisque fenestris,
Estque etiam tota mos prohibere domo.
Ast aures, oculique, hae sunt utrinque decebat
Quas Satanae clausas opposuisse fores.

Furthermore, by closing doors and shutting windows, it is the custom to keep the winds out of the whole house. But ears and eyes, these are the things which ought to be closed against Satan, like shut doors on both sides.
