Original Sin

Horace, Satires 1.3.68-69 (tr. Christopher Smart):
For no one is born without vices: he is the best man
who is encumbered with the least.

nam vitiis nemo sine nascitur; optimus ille est,
qui minimis urgetur.
Propertius 2.22.17 (my translation):
To each one at his birth Nature has given a flaw...

uni cuique dedit vitium natura creato...

uni codd.: unum Waardenburgh
