27. Leo Inclusus et Vulpes. Vulpes, prope leonem inclusum stans, multis eum lacerabat contumeliis. Leo respondet, “Tu quidem nulla me iniuria afficis, sed adversa quam nunc experior fortuna.”

  1. Tu quidem nulla me iniuria afficis
    sed adversa quam nunc experior fortuna
    You affect me with no injury
    but that which I suffer by adverse fortune?

    Am I right? Putting quam after adversa really messes with my head!

  2. I take it this way:
    Tu quidem nulla me iniuria afficis
    sed adversa-quam-nunc-experior-fortuna [me iniuria afficit].
    it's not you that troubles me, but my bad luck.
