PHILIPPE DE LILLE GAULTIER (GAUTIER) ("D. CHATILLON")
French poet
( - 1201)

Where, O king, destined to perish, are you directing your unavailing flight? Alas, lost one, you know not whom you flee; you are running from enemies, whilst you flee from your foe. You fall upon the rock Scylla desiring to avoid the whirlpool Charybdis.
  [Lat., Quo tendis inertem
    Rex periture, fugam? Nescis heu, perdite! nescis
      Quem fugias; hostes incurris, dum fugis hostem.
        Incidis in Scyllam cupiens vitare Charybdim.]
      - Alexandriad (bk. V, 298),
        source said to be Quintus Curtius
        [Danger]
