EMBLEMA XXIII.

Quis sapere hunc credat sese qui posse vetandis
Ventorum credat flatibus esse parem?
Stultior at quanto est sese qui posse loquentis
Obstruere insanus numinis ora putet?

Who would believe this man to be wise who believes that he can be equal to stopping the gusts of the winds? How much more stupid is he who thinks in his folly that he can stop up the mouth of God when He speaks.
