„Thus when the names of heroes we declare,
Names, whose unpolished sounds offend the ear,
We add, or lop some branches which abound,
Till the harsh accents are with smoothness crowned
That mellows every word, and softens every sound.“

Book III, line 320
De Arte Poetica (1527)
Original: (la) Idcirco si quando ducum referenda virumque
Nomina dura nimis dictu, atque asperrima cultu,
Illa aliqui, nunc addentes, nunc inde putantes
Pauca minutatim, levant, ac mollia reddunt.
