Lat. parallel: (Dist. II, 25) Rebus in adversis animum submittere noli; / spem retine: spes una hominem nec morte relinquit ‘Do not lower your courage when things go wrong; keep up hope: hope alone does not desert a man, not even in death’. The phrasing of the last two ll. is very close to Hsv 34. A similar topic is dealt with in Sól 34.
