[187] Utilis interdum est ipsis iniuria passis because it is by this seeming injury that they excuse their fault. Whoever reads over this Epistle with attention, will see that Ovid has exhausted all his wit and ingenuity upon it; nor is there in all his writings so strong a view of the turns and artifices of women. I cannot therefore sufficiently wonder how it ever entered into the head of a critic, that this Epistle was not written by Ovid.
