Strana 489 - Adfirmabant autem hanc fuisse summam vel culpae suae vel erroris, quod essent soliti stato die ante lucem convenire carmenque Christo quasi deo dicere secum invicem seque sacramento non in scelus aliquod obstringere, sed ne furta, ne latrocinia, ne adulteria committerent, ne fidem fallerent, ne depositum appellati abnegarent.
Strana 430 - Non sic, aggeribus ruptis quum spumeus amnis Exiit oppositasque evicit gurgite moles, Fertur in arva furens cumulo, camposque per omnes Cum stabulis armenta trahit.
Strana 174 - Namque canebat, uti magnum per inane coacta semina terrarumque animaeque marisque fuissent et liquidi simul ignis; ut his exordia primis omnia et ipse tener mundi concreverit orbis...
Strana 423 - Comata silva: nam Cytorio in iugo Loquente saepe sibilum edidit coma. Amastri Pontica et Cytore buxifer, Tibi haec fuisse et esse cognitissima Ait phaselus...
Strana 345 - Aura feret geminusque Pollux. XXX. EXEOI monumentum aere perennius Regalique situ pyramidum altius, Quod non imber edax, non Aquilo impotens Possit diruere aut innumerabilis Annorum series et fuga temporum. Non omnis moriar, multaque pars mei Vitabit Libitinam : usque ego postera Crescam laude recens dum Capitolium Scandet cum tacita virgine pontifex.
Strana 439 - ... non domus ulla fores habuit ; non fixus in agris, qui regeret certis finibus arva, lapis. ipsae mella dabant quercus, ultroque ferebant obvia securis ubera lactis oves. non acies, non ira fuit, non bella, nee ensem immiti saevus duxerat arte faber.
Strana 340 - ... agedum, pauca accipe contra. primum ego me illorum dederim quibus esse poetas excerpam numero: neque enim concludere versum 40 dixeris esse satis; neque si qui scribat uti nos sermoni propiora, putes hunc esse poetam, ingenium cui sit, cui mens divinior atque os magna sonaturum, des nominis huius honorem.
Strana 498 - Galba, tribus et septuaginta annis quinque principes prospera fortuna emensus, et alieno imperio felicior quam suo. vetus in familia nobilitas, magnae opes: ipsi medium ingenium, magis extra vitia quam cum virtutibus. famae nec incuriosus nec venditator. pecuniae alienae non adpetens, suae parcus, publicae avarus. amicorum libertorumque, ubi in bonos incidisset, sine reprehensione patiens, si mali forent, usque ad culpam ignarus.
Strana 428 - Terra tremit : fugere ferae, et mortalia corda Per gentes humilis stravit pavor : ille flagranti Aut Atho, aut Rhodopen, aut alta Ceraunia telo Deicit : ingeminant Austri, et densissimus imber : Nunc nemora ingenti vento, nunc litora plangunt.
Strana 428 - Non alios prima crescentis origine mundi Illuxisse dies, aliumve habuisse tenorem Crediderim : ver illud erat ; ver magnus agebat Orbis, et hibernis parcebant flatibus Euri : Cum primae lucem pecudes hausere, virumque 340 Terrea progenies duris caput extulit arvis, Immissaeque ferae silvis, et sidera caelo.
