Daily Quote :
The modern woman is the curse of the universe. A disaster, that's what. She thinks that before her arrival on the scene no woman ever did anything worthwhile before, no woman was ever liberated until her time, no woman really ever amounted to anything.

Proverbia VII

Capitulum VII

  1. fili mi custodi sermones meos et praecepta mea reconde tibi

  2. serva mandata mea et vives et legem meam quasi pupillam oculi tui

  3. liga eam in digitis tuis scribe illam in tabulis cordis tui

  4. dic sapientiae soror mea es et prudentiam voca amicam tuam

  5. ut custodiat te a muliere extranea et ab aliena quae verba sua dulcia facit

  6. de fenestra enim domus meae per cancellos prospexi

  7. et video parvulos considero vecordem iuvenem

  8. qui transit in platea iuxta angulum et propter viam domus illius graditur

  9. in obscuro advesperascente die in noctis tenebris et caligine

  10. et ecce mulier occurrit illi ornatu meretricio praeparata ad capiendas animas garrula et vaga

  11. quietis inpatiens nec valens in domo consistere pedibus suis

  12. nunc foris nunc in plateis nunc iuxta angulos insidians

  13. adprehensumque deosculatur iuvenem et procaci vultu blanditur dicens

  14. victimas pro salute debui hodie reddidi vota mea

  15. idcirco egressa sum in occursum tuum desiderans te videre et repperi

  16. intexui funibus lectum meum stravi tapetibus pictis ex Aegypto

  17. aspersi cubile meum murra et aloe et cinnamomo

  18. veni inebriemur uberibus donec inlucescat dies et fruamur cupitis amplexibus

  19. non est enim vir in domo sua abiit via longissima

  20. sacculum pecuniae secum tulit in die plenae lunae reversurus est domum suam

  21. inretivit eum multis sermonibus et blanditiis labiorum protraxit illum

  22. statim eam sequitur quasi bos ductus ad victimam et quasi agnus lasciviens et ignorans quod ad vincula stultus trahatur

  23. donec transfigat sagitta iecur eius velut si avis festinet ad laqueum et nescit quia de periculo animae illius agitur

  24. nunc ergo fili audi me et adtende verba oris mei

  25. ne abstrahatur in viis illius mens tua neque decipiaris semitis eius

  26. multos enim vulneratos deiecit et fortissimi quique interfecti sunt ab ea

  27. viae inferi domus eius penetrantes interiora mortis
