[189] Aut ego non novi. "Either I mistake in judging to what a degree of rashness love will carry a man, &c.' This way of speaking may sometimes occasion a little obscurity; but the sense of the passage is plain enough. Leander had been complaining, that even in summer the sea was sometimes too rough to be passed without great danger;--What then, adds he, can I propose to myself when winter comes on? But either love is not so rash and headstrong as I am apt to fancy, or even then he will push me to hazard myself amidst storms and tempests.
