QUAE IUDICIUM PERVERTANT.

THINGS THAT PERVERT GOOD JUDGEMENT

Copia opum, rerum Ignorantia, stulta Iuventus
Illusis animum sensibus exoculant.
Sic ut honos, virtúsque minus, plus pulchra voluptas
Complaceat. Docet hoc iudicium Paridis.
Iunoni Venerem qui praetulit: atque Minervae
Filius ut Regis, Rusticus, & Iuvenis.

Material wealth, inexperience of the world, and youth’s stupidity blind the soul by deceiving the senses, so that honour and virtue please less, and pleasure more. The Judgement of Paris proves it! He preferred Venus to Juno and Minerva, and he was the son of a king, a rustic and a youth.
