De eodem, ne precario viverent


CAP. XVII.

                                        TAMQVE generoso animo fuerunt, vt bello intercepti, Vsus precariæ vitæ vitatur.
                                        sæpe in libertatem restitui potuissent, si saltem preces
                                        quantulascunque pro ipsa vita porrigere voluissent. Sed
                                        precariæ vitæ vsum animi magnitudine floccipendentes, vitam
                                        perinde atque parvulum aliquod beneficium respuerunt,
                                        mortis sententiam sua sponte complectentes. Adeo salutem
                                        dedecore, vel dedecoris specie mercari virtus ignorat.
                                        Enimuero nullus vult laudis titulos, aut præmia captans,

bonitas: que robur his addunt, & mortis contemptionem pariunt, sicuti Ioannes
Eschendensis in prima triplicitate sub Septentrione, & Occidentis angulo, vbi Iupiter
& Mars imperia tenent, bellicosos, magnanimos, & fortes gigni, etiam cap. 5. Bellicosi & fortes in Aquilone gignuntur.

                Certe populos, quos despicit Arctos
        Felices errore suo, quos ille timorum
        Maximus haud vrget lethi metus, inde ruendi
        In ferrum mens prona viris, animæque capaces
        Mortis, & ignavum est redituræ parcere vitæ.
Præterea Aristoteles in problematibus asserit in locis calidis timidos esse, & in frigidisAristoteles.
