De Gloria

Here is today's distich by Michele Verinus:

De Gloria
Gloria si dulcis, studeas virtute parare:
Quo labor est maior, gloria maior erit.


The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. All the words in this poem are on that list:

dē: down from, about, concerning (+ abl.)
dulcis -e: sweet
glōria -ae f.: glory, fame
labor -ōris m.: toil, exertion
māior -ius: greater, older; maiōres -um: ancestors
parō -āre: prepare, acquire; parātus -a -um, ready
qui quae quod: who, which, what / quis quid: who? what? which?
sī: if
studeō -ēre -uī: be eager, be zealous, care for (+ dat.)
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
virtūs -ūtis f.: valor, manliness, virtue
