Straightway throughout the Libyan cities flies rumor;--the report of evil things than which nothing is swifter; it flourishes by its very activity and gains new strength by its movements; small at first through fear, it soon raises itself aloft and sweeps onward along the earth. Yet its head reaches the clouds. . . . A huge and horrid monster covered with many feathers: and for every plume a sharp eye, for every pinion a biting tongue. Everywhere its voices sound, to everything its ears are open.
  [Lat., Extemplo Libyae magnas it Fama per urbes:
    Fama malum quo non velocius ullum;
      Mobilitate viget, viresque acquirit eundo;
        Parva metu primo; mox sese attollit in auras,
          Ingrediturque solo, et caput inter nubilia condit.
            . . . .
              Monstrum, horrendum ingens; cui quot sunt corpore plumae
                Tot vigiles oculi subter, mirabile dictu,
                  Tot linquae, totidem ora sonant, tot subrigit aures.]
