EMBLEMA XXI.

Qualis quae fulvo circumdata cernitur auro
Gemma nitens, radio splendidore micat:
Talis formoso splendens in corpore virtus,
Nescio quod prodit conspicienda decus.

Just as the bright stone which is displayed set in tawny gold sparkles with more shining rays, so virtue, shining in a beautiful body, a worthy sight, shows I know not what glory
