Image: Vulpes et Vir Fluctus Numerans


M0054 - M0055 - M0056
55. Vulpes et Vir Fluctus Numerans. Homo quidam in litore sedens ad fluctuosum mare fluctus numerabat. Cum vero subinde erraret, graviter id ferre et excruciari, donec adstans vulpes ei diceret, “Quid laboras, mi homo, eorum causa qui praeterierant? Eos qui hinc oriuntur numerare incipere, illis neglectis, oportet.”
