Strana 134 - In heart and mind; that curled my hair, wore gloves in my cap, served the lust of my mistress's heart, and did the act of darkness with her; swore as many oaths as I spake words, and broke them in the sweet face of heaven; one that slept in the contriving of lust, and waked to do it. Wine loved I deeply, dice dearly, and in woman out-paramoured the Turk: false of heart, light of ear, bloody of hand; hog in sloth, fox in stealth, wolf in greediness, dog in madness, lion in prey.
Strana 50 - Pacuvius docti famam senis, Accius alti ; Dicitur Afrani toga convenisse Menandro ; Plautus ad exemplar Siculi properare Epicharmi ; Vincere Caecilius gravitate, Terentius arte.
Strana 197 - Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil : and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom. And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord God.
Strana 62 - Valde quidem, inquam, probandos ; nudi enim sunt, recti et venusti, omni ornatu orationis tamquam veste detracta. Sed dum voluit alios habere parata unde sumerent qui vellent scribere historiam, ineptis gratum fortasse fecit, qui volent illa calamistris inurere ; sanos quidem homines a scribendo deterruit, nihil est enim in historia pura et illustri brevitate dulcius.
Strana 198 - Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn ? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit ? That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat ? The Lord hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.
Strana 198 - Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail, Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn ? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat...
Strana 191 - If these writings of the Greeks agree with the book of God, they are useless, and need not be preserved; if they disagree, they are pernicious, and ought to be destroyed.
Strana 69 - Ego cur acquirere pauca Si possum invideor, cum lingua Catonis et Enni Sermonem patrium ditaverit et nova rerum Nomina protulerit ? Licuit semperque licebit Signatum praesente nota producere nomen.
Strana 83 - Nam mihi videtur M. Tullius, cum se totum ad imitationem Graecorum contulisset, effinxisse vim Demosthenis, copiam Platonis, iucunditatem Isocrutis.
Strana 84 - pluvias,' ut ait Pindarus, ' aquas colligit ; sed vivo gurgite exundat,' dono quodam providentiae genitus, in quo totas vires suas eloquentia experiretur. Nam quis docere diligentius, movere vehementius potest ? Cui tanta unquam iucunditas affuit?
