Calumniam contra calumniatorem virtus repellit
Who so with force against the marble wall,
Or piller stronge, doth shoote, to pierce the same:
It not prevailes, for doune the arrowes fall,
Or backe rebounde, to him from whence they came:
So slaunders foule, and wordes like arrowes keene,
Not vertue hurtes, but turnes her foes to teene.
