Ille volat, campoque atrum rapit agmen aperto :
Qualis ubi ad terras abrupto sidere nimbus
It mare per medium : miseris, heu, praescia longe
Horrescunt corda agricolis; dabit ille ruinas
Arboribus, stragemque satis; ruet omnia late;
Ante volant, sonitumque ferunt ad litora venti:
Talis in adversos ductor Rhoeteïus hostes
Agmen agit.

Of all the causes which conspire to blind
Man's erring judgment, and misguide the mind,
What the weak head with strongest bias rules,
