RENE SIEUR DE RAPIN
French Jesuit and writer of prose and Latin poetry
(1621 - 1687)

Our strength often increases in proportion to the obstacles which are imposed upon it; it is thus that we enter upon the most perilous plans after having had the shame of failing in more simple ones.
      - [Endurance]

Nor shall the marigold unmentioned die,
  Which Acis once found out in Sicily;
    She Phoebus loves, and from him draws his hue,
      And ever keeps his golden beams in view.
      - In His Latin Poem on Gardens,
        (Gardiner's 1706 translation)
        [Marigolds]
