Page 127 - Nunc enim quanta dementia est hominum ! Turpissima vota dis insusurrant ; si quis admoverit aurem, conticescent. Et quod scire hominem nolunt, deo narrant.

Page 179 - Theokr. n 140. 193 — 202 Meanwhile the crowded benches pay their devotions to the Idaean festival of the Great Mother's 'towel'; the praetor, ruined by the horses, sits in triumphal state, and (without offence to the countless and overgrown populace be it said) all Borne now finds place in the Circus ; hark, a shout strikes on my ear, from which I gather the victory of tha green 'rag.
Page 62 - O Juvenall lord, true is thy sentence, That little wenen folke what is to yerne, That they ne finden in hir desire offence, For cloud of errour ne lette hem discerne What best is, and lo, here ensample as yerne : These folke desiren now deliverance Of Antenor, that brought hem to mischaunce.
Page 143 - Eum esse declaramus : stultum autem illum a quoi vortit male. Stulti haud scimus , frustra ut simus , quom quid cupienter dari Petimus nobis , quasi , quid in rem sit , possimus noscere. Certa amittimus , dum incerta petimus : atque hoc evenit, In labore atque in dolore ut mors obrepat interim.
