      Atque hi tanti ignes tamque multi non modo nihil nocent terris rebusquc terrestribus, sed ita prosunt, ut, si moti loco sint, conflagrare terras necesse sit a tantis ardoribus moderatione et temperatione sublata
      And these fiery bodies, which are so great and numerous, not only do no harm to the earth and what is upon the earth, but are beneficial in this way, that if they were moved from their place the earth would inevitably be consumed by their intense heat, when it had ceased to be controlled and moderated.

  3. (intransitive, figuratively) I am inflamed or impassioned; I burn.
