Chariot and two horses

 

6561-roman-charioteer-wit

The soul of man has its own chariot

With a driver and two horses:

The one eager for honorable praises;

The other intent on becoming corrupt

That only flogging and bawling can quell.

With the driver’s free rein to the mares,

The noble horse will go AWOL,

The ignoble will head dominance.
