TODAY'S DISTICHS & EMBLEMS: All the distichs come with vocabulary lists!

CATO'S DISTICHS: The two new Cato Distichs are Rebus in adversis, Rebus in adversis animum submittere noli; / Spem retine: spes una hominem nec morte relinquit; and Prospice, qui veniant, Prospice, qui veniant casus, hos esse ferendos: / Nam levius laedit, quidquid praevidimus ante.

MARTIAL'S DISTICHS: The two new Martial Distichs are Ut sapiant fatuae, Ut sapiant fatuae, fabrorum prandia, betae, / o quam saepe petet vina piperque cocus! and Moechum Gellia non habet, Moechum Gellia non habet nisi unum; / Turpe est hoc magis: uxor est duorum.

OWEN'S DISTICHS: The two new Owen epigrams, with Harvey's English versions, are O Spes Fallaces! O res fallaces potius; spes vero fideles, / Quae vel ad extremum nos comitantur iter; and De Vita et Morte, Ad mortem sic vita fluit, velut ad mare flumen, / Vivere nam res est dulcis, amara mori.

ROLLENHAGEN'S EMBLEMS: The two new emblems are Fato Prudentia Maior, Adverso sapiens fato prudentia maior; / Arte malum quisquis corrigit, ille sapit; and In Silentio Et Spe, Ornant mortales taciturna silentia sanctos; / Spes silet exspectans: danda brabea piis.

CAMERARIUS'S EMBLEMS: The two new emblems are Vetustate Relicta, Inveterata tua iam tandem crimina culpa / Exue, si rediet laeta iuventa tibi; and Nil Ultra Vires, Ne nimium imprudens teneris impone lacertis: / Et fortem sternunt pondera iniqua virum.
