JACOPO SANNAZARO (SANNAZARIUS)
Italian poet
(1458 - 1530)

Most learned of the fair, most fair of the learned.
  [Lat., Delle belle eruditissima, delle erudite bellissima.]
      - inscription in an edition of Cassandra's Marchesia's poems
        [Learning]

He ploughs the waves, sows the sand, and hopes to gather the wind in a net, who places his hopes on the heart of a woman.
  [It., Ne l'onde solca, e ne l'arena semina,
    E'l vago vento spera in rete acogliere
      Chi sue speranze fonda in cor di femina.]
      - Ecloga Octava [Women]

Man is only miserable so far as he thinks himself so.
  [It., Tanto e miser l'uom quant' ei si riputa.]
      - Ecloga Octava [Mind]

There is no evil in the world without a remedy.
  [Lat., Al mondo mal non e senza rimedio.]
      - Ecloga Octava [Evil]

Envy, my son, wears herself away, and droops like a lamb under the influence of the evil eye.
  [Lat., L'invidia, figliuol mio, se stessa macera,
    E si dilegua come agnel per fascino.]
      - Ecloga Sesta [Envy]
