Tonight at 8pm, we will cover Vatican Saying 46 & 47. Please join us. (Post here in this thread if you have never attended one of these sessions as we do have a vetting process for new participants.)
VS46. Let us utterly drive from us our bad habits, as if they were evil men who have long done us great harm.
(Alternate translation by Saint-Andre: "We cast off common customs just as we would do to wicked men who have been causing great harm for a long time".)
VS47. I have anticipated thee, Fortune, and I have closed off every one of your devious entrances. And we will not give ourselves up as captives, to thee or to any other circumstance; but when it is time for us to go, spitting contempt on life and on those who cling to it maundering, we will leave from life singing aloud a glorious triumph-song on how nicely we lived.
