Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria

In youth the panting slave
pursues the fair evasive dame.
Then, caught in colder fetters,
woos wealth, office, or a name.
Till, old, dishonoured,
sick, downcast
and failing in his wits,
in virtue's narrow cell at last
the withered bondsman sits.
That man alone his fate fulfills.
For he alone, for he alone is free
who chooses what to will,
and wills his choice as destiny.
No eye his future can foretell,
no law his past explain,
whom neither passion
may compel,
nor reason can restrain.
Well?
