Sed quoniam eo saepe angustiarum rediguntur, ut consilium
nullum <br> adferre queant, et plerumque ob incerta
fortunae bona, quae sine modo <br> cupiunt, inter spem
metumque misere fluctuant, ideo animum ut <br> plurimum
ad quidvis credendum pronissimum habent; qui dum in
dubio <br> facili momento huc, atque illuc pellitur, et multo
facilius, dum spe, et <br> metu agitatus haeret, praefidens
alias, jactabundus, ac tumidus. </span> <span

existimo, quamvis plerosque se ipsos ignorare credam;
<br> nemo enim inter homines ita vixit, qui non viderit,
plerosque in rebus <br> prosperis, etsi imperitissimi sint,
sapientia ita abundare, ut sibi injuriam <br>fieri credant, si
quis iis consilium dare velit; in adversis autem, quo <br> se
vertant, nescire, et consilium ab unoquoque supplices petere,
nec ullum <br> tam ineptum tamque absurdum, aut vanum
audire, quod non sequantur: <br> Deinde levissimis etiam de
causis jam meliora sperare, rursus deteriora <br> timere; si
quid enim, dum in metu versantur, contingere vident, quod
eos <br> praeteriti alicujus boni, vel mali memores reddit,
id exitum aut foelicem, <br> aut infoelicem obnunciare
putant, quod propterea, quamvis centies fallat, <br>
faustum vel infaustum omen vocant. </span> <span
class="corsivo"> Si quid porro insolitum magna cum <br>
admiratione vident, id prodigium esse credunt, quod
Deorum aut summi <br> Numinis iram indicat, quodque
adeo hostiis, et votis non piare, nefas habent <br>homines
superstitioni obnoxii, et religioni adversi; eumque ad
modum <br> infinita fingunt, et quasi tota natura cum ipsis
insaniret, eandem <br> miris modis interpretantur. </span>

et lachrimis muliebribus divina <br> auxilia implorare, et
rationem (quia ad vana, quae cupiunt, certam <br> viam
ostendere nequit) caecam appellare, humanamque
sapientiam vanam; <br> et contra imaginationis deliria,
