Strana 1 - We, ignorant of ourselves, Beg often our own harms, which the wise powers Deny us for our good ; so find we profit, By losing of our prayers.
Strana 262 - Of these all-conquering arms. Son of Achilles [turning to NEOPTOLEMUS (For now to thee I speak), remember this, Without his aid thou canst not conquer Troy, Nor Philoctetes without thee succeed ; Go then, and, like two lions in the field Roaming for prey, guard ye each other well ; My jEsculapius will I send e'en now To heal thy wounds. Then go, and conquer Troy ; But when you lay the vanquished city waste, Be careful that you venerate the gods ; For far above all other gifts doth Jove, Th...
Strana 253 - Christ ; and dispose yourself so, as if you were even at the last affront, and the very latest injury you were to receive in marching under the cross of our Lord.

He listened with gasping anxiety, till the steps of Calva were no longer audible : then a wild and savage joy thrilled through him : for he was free! — free, to seek the revenge his soul thirsted for. With one spring he cleared the balcony of his window into the garden ; scaled its high wall ; and was at the door of Giovanni's house in the Strada H Lomellino, without having once paused to take breath.
Strana 149 - I will prove it to you,) that never by thought, word, nor deed; have I wronged you with Beatrice ; — is our bond of soul to be broken at...
Strana 148 - At that moment, had Giovanni possessed ten thousand lives, Cesario would have thought them all too few to slake his gasping vengeance : he uttered some unconnected words of horrid import, accompanied by certain wandering movements of the eye and hand, which had an expression in them even more horrible than his words.
