For all those students taking AP Latin Exams, Vergil speaks:
“Now this same fortune still pursues these men driven by dangers
What end do you permit for their labors, great king?”
nunc eadem fortuna viros tot casibus actos
insequitur. Quem das finem, rex magne, laborum?
“Don’t yield to evils, but go boldly forward
Where your fortune bids you. The first path of safety
Which you might imagine the least, leads through a city of Greeks.”
tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito,
qua tua te Fortuna sinet. via prima salutis
(quod minime reris) Graia pandetur ab urbe.’
“….Let’s charge to the other side across the wave
While they take their first steps in fear.
Fortune favors the brave.”
…ultro occurramus ad undam
dum trepidi egressisque labant vestigia prima.
audentis Fortuna iuvat.'[….]
