Page 323 - Gratiano speaks an infinite deal of nothing, more than any man in all Venice. His reasons are as two grains of wheat hid in two bushels of chaff : you shall seek all day ere you find them, and when you have them, they are not worth the search.
Page 189 - Yet must I not give Nature all; thy art, My gentle Shakespeare, must enjoy a part. For though the poet's matter nature be, His art doth give the fashion; and, that he Who casts to write a living line, must sweat, (Such as thine are) and strike the second heat Upon the Muses...
Page 149 - Daß alles wohl sich zieme, was geschieht. Die Schicklichkeit umgibt mit einer Mauer Das zarte, leicht verletzliche Geschlecht. Wo Sittlichkeit regiert, regieren sie, Und wo die Frechheit herrscht, da sind sie nichts. Und wirst du die Geschlechter beide fragen: Nach Freiheit strebt der Mann, das Weib nach Sitte.
Page 29 - Mercator metuens, otium et oppidi Laudat rura sui : mox reficit rates Quassas, indocilis pauperiem pati. Est, qui nee veteris pocula Massici, Nee partem solido demere de die, Spernit ; nunc viridi membra sub arbuto Stratus, nunc ad aquae lene caput sacrae.
Page 29 - Myrtoum pavidus nauta secet mare; luctantem Icariis fluctibus Africum mercator metuens otium et oppidi laudat rura sui: mox reficit rates quassas indocilis pauperiem pati.
Page 29 - Maecenas, atavis edite regibus, O, et praesidium et dulce decus meum, Sunt quos curriculo pulverem Olympicum Collegisse juvat, metaque fervidis Evitata rotis, palmaque nobilis Terrarum dominos evehit ad Deos.
Page 13 - Thei also are worthie of condemnation who indevoure at this time to restore the dangerouse opinion that al menne, be thei never so ungodlie, shall at lengtht bee saved, when thei have suffered paines for their sinnes a certain time appoincted by God's justice.
Page 218 - ... strekking dier omwenteling. In het maatschappelijke moge de revolutie in Frankrijk nog dieper hebben doorgetast; in het politieke heeft zij Frankrijk, vergeleken met Nederland, slechts oppervlakkig aangedaan. Tocqueville heeft bewezen, dat de staatsinrichting, zoo als die na de omwenteling voltrokken is, reeds onder de oude régime was aangevangen. Bij ons daarentegen is al het bestaande tot in zijn grondslagen vernietigd en door een geheel nieuw gebouw vervangen.
Page 29 - Hunc si mobilium turba Quiritium Certat tergeminis tollere honoribus ; Illum si proprio condidit horreo Quidquid de Libycis verritur areis. Gaudentem patrios findere sarculo Agros Attalicis conditionibus Nunquam dimoveas, ut trabe Cypria Myrtoum pavidus nauta secet mare.
Page 185 - Twixt right and wrong ; for pleasure and revenge Have ears more deaf than adders to the voice Of any true decision.
