Latin LOLCat: Sweet fruit

Here is today's Latin LOLCat: The Latin RHYMES - fructus/ductus... I am a big fan of rhyming Latin proverbs, and the rhyme betrays the medieval origin of these proverbs (the ancient Romans did not like rhyme so much). This rhyming proverb has gained a lasting fame by being used by Rabelais! If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check ou the Bestiaria Latina blog.

Dulcior est fructus post multa pericula ductus.

Sweeter is the fruit obtained after many dangers.
