Resist beginnings; too late is the medicine prepared,Id., 101-102:
when the disease has gained strength by long delay.
principiis obsta; sero medicina paratur,
cum mala per longas convaluere moras.
I have seen a wound, that at first was healable,
by tarrying suffer the penalty of long delay.
vidi ego, quod fuerat primo sanabile, vulnus
dilatum longae damna tulisse morae.
