The Quotes in this section are related to the works of Lux Nova and his studies and analysis of the Works and Prophecies of Nostradamus. Lux Nova provides separate themed books of Nostradamus Prophecies, each of which can be accessed in the Secret Vault. This Quote or 'Extract' if you prefer, draws reference from the following books by Lux Nova:
Par peste rase viendra bien mal eslire,
Plus que sa charge ne porter passera,
Si grande fureur et rage sera dire,
Qu'a feu et sang tout sexe tranchera.
Authors works consulted for variations in French: (a) John Hogue. (b) Henry C. Roberts. (c) Mario Reading. (page, 367.) (d) Edgar Leoni. (e) Jean-Charles de Fontbrune (page, 100.) French rendered the same except. (a)(b)(c)(e) have, 'teste,' instead of Peste. (d) has, 'tete.' All authors have, 'porte' instead of porter. (a)(c) have, 'raige,' and 'trenchera.' (a)(b)(c)(e) have 'grand.' (e) has, 'tant' instead of Tout.

Charge= A load, burden; also, a charge, hindrance, or cause of extraordinary expense; an office, commission. Porter= To carry, move, convey; bear, manage; control; bring. Passera= Will pass, go, proceed, surpass, surmount, overrun. Rage= Fury, madness, fierceness, terribleness, outrageousness. Sexe= Feminine, of sex, a female. Tranchera as Trenchera= Will cut, carve, slice, hack, hew to pieces.
How unfortunate it is that past authors have so misunderstood the consequences of this verse. Mario Reading' thoughts on this verse are such we might say,
'Il en parlecomme un aveugle
He speaks of it like a blindman
(speaks) of colours.
The rest think this evil fool is talking of both sexes, male and female, but 'grande' and 'sexe' are feminine. Work it yourselves and weep.
By the pestilent shaven one a thoroughly evil decision,
More through his inability to bear his burden,
In a fit of rage and fury will command,
That all of one sex be slaughtered by bloody slicing and fire.
