Translation of Latin text below image: “How many evils does lust, constrained by no limit, compel, and with what asweet song drags even the purest minds of mortals into every (kind of) upheaval. [sed cito quam fallimur: something like, “but how quickly we are led astray” or “but how quickly we decline”]. Death takes over brief life, brief joy. What smiles for a moment grieves for eternity.” Translation by A. Szegedy-Maszak and Michael Roberts 2006. See object file for notes on translation.
