Steh’ höher als der Neid. [Be nevertheless undaunted. Act nevertheless undefeated. Yield not to any chance. ] An indication outside of the realm of fiction of the importance of consolation was the hope expressed by Harsdörffer in 1643, in volume 3 of the Frauenzimmer Gesprächspiele (Playful Colloquies for the Ladies), that Boethius’s De consolatione philosophiae would soon find a German translator.
