Je ne sais s'il crut ce conseil ; Mais je sais que chacun impute en cas pareil Son bonheur à son industrie, Et si de quelque échec notre faute est suivie, Nous disons injures au sort. Chose n'est ici plus commune : Le bien nous le faisons, le mal c'est la fortune, On a toujours raison, le destin toujours tort. FABLE XIV LES DEVINERESSES C'est souvent du hasard que naît l'opinion ; Et c'est l'opinion qui fait toujours la vogue. Je pourrais fonder ce prologue Sur gens de tous états ; tout est prévention, Cabale, entêtement, point ou peu de justice : 47 C'est un torrent ; qu'y faire ?

Ma foi, Monsieur, Dit avec un ton de rieur, Le gaillard Savetier, ce n'est point ma manière De compter de la sorte ; et je n'entasse guère Un jour sur l'autre : il suffit qu'à la fin J'attrape le bout de l'année : Chaque jour amène son pain. – Et bien que gagnez-vous, dites-moi, par journée ? – Tantôt plus, tantôt moins : le mal est que toujours (Et sans cela nos gains seraient assez honnêtes), 63 Le mal est que dans l'an s'entremêlent des jours Qu'il faut chommer ; on nous ruine en Fêtes. L'une fait tort à l'autre ; et Monsieur le Curé De quelque nouveau Saint charge toujours son prône.

Qu'est-ce que tout cela, qu'un avertissement ? Allons, vieillard, et sans réplique ; Il n'importe à la république Que tu fasses ton testament. La Mort avait raison : je voudrais qu'à cet âge 61 On sortît de la vie ainsi que d'un banquet, Remerciant son hôte, et qu'on fit son paquet ; Car de combien peut-on retarder le voyage ? Tu murmures, vieillard ; vois ces jeunes mourir, Vois-les marcher, vois-les courir À des morts, il est vrai, glorieuses et belles, Mais sûres cependant, et quelquefois cruelles.
