Tempore ducetur longo fortasse cicatrix; Horrent admotas vulnera cruda manus. A wound will perhaps become tolerable with length of time; but wounds which are raw shudder at the touch of the hands. OvidEpistolæ Ex Ponto. I. 3. 15.
Saucius ejurat pugnam gladiator, et idem Immemor antiqui vulneris arma capit. The wounded gladiator forswears all fighting, but soon forgetting his former wound resumes his arms. OvidEpistolæ Ex Ponto. I. 5. 37.
Thou hast wounded the spirit that loved thee And cherishd thine image for years; Thou hast taught me at last to forget thee, In secret, in silence, and tears. Mrs. David PorterThou Hast Wounded the Spirit.
