                                        ardor, quam delectatio quarumcunque aliarum voluptatum,
                                        dum summum animi, corporisque existimarent solatium,
                                        rigida arma tractare ac arduissimis præliis varios comparare
                                        triumphos : attamen plerique eorum voluptati huic
                                        magnificentius aliquid superaddere meditantes, posteris
