    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 13:30

    Absalom hath slain all the king's sons - Fame never lessens but always magnifies a fact. Report, contrary to the nature of all other things, gains strength by going.

    Virgil has given, in his best manner, a fine personification of Fame or Evil Report. - Aen. iv., 173.

    Extemplo Libyae magnas it Fama per urbes;

    Fama, malum qua non aliud velocius ullum,

    Mobilitate viget, viresque adquirit eundo, etc.

    "Now Fame, tremendous fiend! without delay,

    Through Libyan cities took her rapid way;

    Fame, the swift plague, that every moment grows,

    And gains new strength and vigor as she goes," etc.
