Ka'ala, that is a good question about verses! What you are dealing with here is not continuous verse, though, so I think we are okay without any special markings - they are not really a two-line ditty (in the way, say, an elegiac couplet consists of two lines, or like two lines of continuous hexameter verse); these are individual proverbs (sometimes cited separately, sometimes together and, when together, the order varies). You can see the frog by itself in this awesome little Aesop's fable by Odo of Cheriton: http://tinyurl.com/8r8fvn! - I've also heard this version: quisquis amat vetulam, vetulam putat esse puellam (not as charming as the animal versions, eh?).

If Comenius does cite multiple, continuous lines from a poem, however, we will have to figure out a way to handle that! Thanks so much for marking this. I've not edited your text and we can revisit this if/when other possible lines of verse surface.

For me, the main intrigue in working on this text is the proverbs it will contain - these are great ones! :-)
