Page 346 - Happy the man, and happy he alone, He, who can call to-day his own : He who, secure within, can say, To-morrow do thy worst, for I have lived today. Be fair or foul, or rain or shine, The joys I have possessed, in spite of fate, are mine. Not Heaven itself upon the past has power ; But what has been, has been, and I have had my hour.
Page 351 - Addant avaro divitias mari : Tuno me biremis praesidio scaphae Tutum per Aegaeos tumultua Aura feret geminusque Pollux. XXX. EXEOI monumentum aere perennius Regalique situ pyramidum altius, Quod non imber edax, non Aquilo impotens Possit diruere aut innumerabilis Annorum series et fuga temporum.
Page 348 - What is't to me, Who never sail in her unfaithful sea, If storms arise, and clouds grow black ; , If the mast split, and threaten wreck ? Then let the greedy merchant fear For his ill-gotten gain ; And pray to gods that will not hear, While the debating winds and billows bear His wealth into the main.
Page 7 - Luctantem Icariis fluctibus Africum Mercator metuens, otium et oppidi Laudat rura sui : mox reficit rates Quassas, indocilis pauperiem pati.
Page 5 - 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, Hunc si mobilium turba Quiritium Certat tergeminis tollere honoribus ; Illum si proprio condidit horreo Quidquid de Libycis verritur areis.
Page 322 - QUO me, Bacche, rapis tui plenum ? quae nemora aut quos agor in specus velox mente nova...
Page 23 - Vides, ut alta stet nive candidum Soracte, nee iam sustineant onus silvae laborantes geluque flumina constiterint acuto. dissolve frigus ligna super foco large reponens, atque benignius deprome quadrimum Sabina, o Thaliarche, merum diota.
Page 41 - O navis, referent in mare te novi fluctus ! o quid agis ? fortiter occupa portum ! nonne vides ut nudum remigio latus et malus celeri saucius Africo 5 antennaeque gemant ac sine funibus vix durare carinae possint imperiosius aequor?
Page 189 - Otium divos rogat in. patenti prensus Aegaeo, simul atra nubes condidit lunam neque certa fulgent sidera nautis ; otium bello furiosa Thrace, otium Medi pharetra decori, Grosphe, non gemmis neque purpura venale neque auro.
Page 279 - O FONS Bandusiae, splendidior vitro, Dulci digne mero non sine floribus, Cras donaberis haedo, Cui frons turgida cornibus Primis et venerem et proelia destinat; 5 Frustra: nam gelidos inficiet tibi Rubro sanguine rivos Lascivi suboles gregis.
