    Behold a worthy sight, to which the God, turning his attention to
    his own work, may direct his gaze. Behold an equal thing, worthy
    of a God, a brave man matched in conflict with evil fortune.
    [Lat., Ecce spectaculum dignum, ad quod respiciat intentus operi
    suo Deus. Ecce par Deo dignum, vir fortis cum mala fortuna
    compositus.]

A wretched soul, bruised with adversity,
We bid be quiet when we hear it cry.
But were we burd'ned with like weight of pain,

But if thou live to see like right bereft,
This fool-begged patience in thee will be left.
