Illustrated: Camelus Primo Conspicatus


M0143 - M0144 - M0145
144. Camelus Primo Conspicatus. Qui camelum primus conspicatus est, effugit; qui secundus, appropinquavit; qui tertius, frenum fecit, quo eum duceret. Nam quod primo novum ac terribile videtur, mox usu cotidiano solita res fit ac mansueta.
