2669. You will go most safely down the middle.


2670. You are earth and into the earth you will go.


2671. You will go, you will return - never - you will die.

(It's hard to convey the ambiguity of the Latin, where free word order makes it easy to interpret the omen as a good one, Ibis - redibis - numquam peribis, "You will go, you will return, you will never die," when it turns out to be a bad one: Ibis - redibis  numquam - peribis, "You will go, you will never return, you will die.")


2672. All things will pass.


2673. Mortal deeds will perish.


2674. It is a little wisp of cloud; it will pass.


2675. He who loves danger will die in danger.


2676. The turtle will outdistance the furry rabbit on foot.


2677. He who puts out a trap for someone else will perish in that trap.
