Strana 414 - Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
Strana 276 - Immunis aram si tetigit manus, Non sumptuosa blandior hostia Mollivit aversos Penates Farre pio et saliente mica.
Strana 139 - Not that fine speaking is not a very good and commendable quality; but not so excellent and so necessary as some would make it; and I am scandalized that our whole life should be spent in nothing else. I would first understand my own language, and that of my neighbours with whom most of my business and conversation lies.
Strana 108 - All other knowledge is hurtful to him who has not the science of honesty and goodness.
Strana 41 - We are not men, nor have other tie upon one another, but by our word. If we did but discover the horror and gravity of it, we should pursue it with fire and sword, and more justly than other crimes.
Strana 662 - I speak truth, not so much as I would, but as much as I dare: and I dare a little the more, as I grow older; for methinks custom allows to age more liberty of prating, and more indiscretion of talking of a man's self.
Strana 303 - Still earlier, Rabelais cites him with due respect. Montaigne, in 1589, says: " We dunces had been lost, had not this book raised us out of the dirt. By this favor of his we dare now speak and write. The ladies are able to read to schoolmasters. 'Tis our breviary.
Strana 83 - ... pound them to a pulp, which they mix with their wine, and drink it; where the...
Strana 267 - Still to be neat, still to be drest, As you were going to a feast ; Still to be powdered, still perfumed: Lady, it is to be presumed, Though art's hid causes are not found, All is not sweet, all is not sound.
Strana 64 - Inter spem curamque, timores inter et iras, Omnem crede diem tibi diluxisse supremum : Grata superveniet quae non sperabitur hora.
