Strana 15 - ... est igitur haec, iudices, non scripta, sed nata lex, quam non didicimus, accepimus, legimus, verum ex natura ipsa arripuimus, hausimus, expressimus, ad quam non docti, sed facti, non instituti, sed imbuti sumus...
Strana 431 - Within a long recess there lies a bay : An island shades it from the rolling sea, And forms a port secure for ships to ride : Broke by the jutting land, on either side, In double streams the briny waters glide, Betwixt two rows of rocks : a sylvan scene Appears above, and groves for ever green : A grot is formed beneath, with mossy seats, To rest the Nereids, and exclude the heats.
Strana 236 - A creature of a more exalted kind Was wanting yet, and then was Man design'd : Conscious of thought, of more capacious breast, For empire form'd, and fit to rule the rest...
Strana 17 - Mens et animus et consilium et sententia civitatis posita est in legibus. Ut corpora nostra sine mente, sic civitas sine lege suis partibus, ut nervis ac sanguine et membris, uti non potest.
Strana 150 - Vos plaudite' dicat, Aetatis cujusque notandi sunt tibi mores, Mobilibusque decor naturis dandus et annis. Reddere qui voces jam scit puer et pede certo Signat humum, gestit paribus colludere, et iram Colligit ac ponit temere, et mutatur in horas.
Strana 155 - Tu nihil invita dices faciesve Minerva ; 385 Id tibi judicium est, ea mens. Si quid tamen olim Scripseris, in Maeci descendat judicis aures Et patris et nostras, nonumque prematur in annum, Membranis intus positis : delere licebit, Quod non edideris ; nescit vox missa reverti.
Strana 458 - My fate she follow'd. Ignorant of this (Whatever) danger, neither parting kiss, Nor pious blessing taken, her I leave, And in this only act of all my life deceive. By this right hand, and conscious night, I swear, My soul so sad a farewell could not bear. Be you her comfort ; fill my vacant place ; (Permit me to presume so great a grace ;) Support her age, forsaken and distress'd. That hope alone will fortify my breast Against the worst of fortunes, and of fears.
Strana 449 - Talibus orabat dictis, arasque tenebat, Cum sic orsa loqui vates : 'Sate sanguine divom, 125 Tros Anchisiada, facilis descensus Averno; Noctes atque dies patet atri janua Ditis; Sed revocare gradum superasque evadere ad auras, Hoc opus, hie labor est.
Strana 246 - Of crowds, or issuing forth, or ent'ring in : A thoroughfare of news : where some devise Things never heard ; some mingle truth with lies : The troubled air with empty sounds they beat ; Intent to hear, and eager to repeat. Error sits brooding there ; with added train Of vain Credulity, and Joys as vain : Suspicion, with Sedition join'd, are near ; as And -rumours rais'd, and murmurs mix'd, and panic fear.
Strana 104 - Before great Agamemnon reign'd, Reign'd kings as great as he, and brave, Whose huge ambition's- now contain'd In the small compass of a grave : In endless night they sleep, unwept, unknown : No bard had they to make all time their own.
