Strana 36 - Seven years, my Lord, have now passed since I waited in your outward rooms, or was repulsed from your door ; during which time I have been pushing on my work through difficulties, of which it is useless to complain, and have brought it at last to the verge of publication, without one act of assistance, one word of encouragement, or one smile of favour.
Strana 29 - And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name ? And he blessed him there. And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel : for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
Strana 55 - Nunc est bibendum, nunc pede libero pulsanda tellus, nunc Saliaribus ornare pulvinar deorum tempus erat dapibus, sodales. antehac nefas depromere Caecubum cellis avitis, dum Capitolio regina dementes ruinas funus et imperio parabat contaminato cum grege turpium morbo virorum...
Strana 183 - Si quis piorum manibus locus ; si, ut sapientibus placet, non cum corpore exstinguuntur magnae animae ; placide quiescas ; nosque, domum tuam, ab infirmo desiderio, et muliebribus lamentis, ad contemplationem virtutum tuarum voces, quas neque lugeri, neque plangi fas est : admiratione te potius, temporalibus laudibus, et, si natura suppeditet, similitudine decoremus.
Strana 13 - Hic aliud maius miseris multoque tremendum obiicitur magis, atque improvida pectora turbat. 200 Laocoon, ductus Neptuno sorte sacerdos, sollemnes taurum ingentem mactabat ad aras. Ecce autem gemini a Tenedo tranquilla per alta, (horresco referens) immensis orbibus angues incumbunt pelago, pariterque ad litora tendunt; 205 pectora quorum inter fluctus arrecta iubaeque sanguineae superant undas, pars cetera pontum pone legit sinuatque immensa volumine terga. Fit sonitus spumante salo; iamque arva tenebant...
Strana 57 - Diluit; implentur fossae, et cava flumina crescunt Cum sonitu, fervetque fretis spirantibus aequor. Ipse Pater media nimborum in nocte corusca Fulmina molitur dextra, quo maxima motu Terra tremit, fugere ferae et mortalia corda 330 Per gentes humilis stravit pavor...
Strana 137 - Agri pro numero cultorum ab universis in vices occupantur, quos -mox inter se secundum dignationem partiuntur : facilitatem partiendi camporum spatia praestant. Arva per annos mutant : et superest ager ; nee enim cum ubertate et amplitudine soli labore contendunt, ut pomaria conserant et prata separent et hortos rigent : sola terrae seges imperatur.
Strana 36 - Nothing could stop that astonishing infantry. No sudden burst of undisciplined valour, no nervous enthusiasm, weakened the stability of their order...
Strana 36 - I have been pushing on my work through difficulties of which it is useless to complain and have brought it at last to the verge of publication, without one act of assistance, one word of encouragement or one smile of favour. Such treatment I did not expect, for I never had a Patron before. " The shepherd in Virgil grew at last acquainted with Love and found him a native of the rocks.
Strana 47 - ... nutrita, faustis sub penetralibus posset, quid Augusti paternus in pueros animus Nerones. fortes creantur fortibus et bonis; est in iuvencis, est in equis patrum 30 virtus, neque imbellem feroces progenerant aquilae columbam; doctrina sed vim promovet insitam, rectique cultus pectora roborant; utcunque defecere mores, 35 indecorant bene nata culpae.
