Página xxxvi - 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.
Página x - Last noon beheld them full of lusty life, Last eve in Beauty's circle proudly gay, The midnight brought the signal-sound of strife, The morn the marshalling in arms— the day Battle's magnificently stern array! The thunder-clouds close o'er it, which when rent The earth is covered thick with other clay, Which her own clay shall cover, heaped and pent, Rider and horse,— friend, foe,— in one red burial blent!
Página xliii - Qu'affectent la plupart de vos gens à la mode; Et je ne hais rien tant que les contorsions De tous ces grands faiseurs de protestations, Ces affables donneurs d'embrassades frivoles, Ces obligeants diseurs d'inutiles paroles, Qui de civilités avec tous font combat, Et traitent du même air l'honnête homme et le fat.
Página liii - Yes ! let the rich deride, the proud disdain, These simple blessings of the lowly train, To me more dear, congenial to my heart, One native charm, than all the gloss of art : Spontaneous joys, where nature has its play, The soul adopts, and owns their first-born sway ; Lightly they frolic o'er the vacant mind, Unenvied, unmolested, unconfined.
Página xciv - So may the outward shows be least themselves; The world is still deceiv'd with ornament. In law, what plea so tainted and corrupt, But, being season'd with a gracious voice, Obscures the show of evil? In religion, What damned error, but some sober brow Will bless it, and approve it with a text, Hiding the grossness with fair ornament?
Página xciii - In the most high and palmy state of Rome, A little ere the mightiest Julius fell, The graves stood tenantless, and the sheeted dead Did squeak and gibber in the Roman streets...
Página liii - Perhaps in this neglected spot is laid Some heart once pregnant with celestial fire; Hands, that the rod of empire might have swayed, Or waked to ecstasy the living lyre.
Página xliii - C'est, de la tête aux pieds, un homme tout mystère, Qui vous jette, en passant, un coup d'œil égaré, Et sans aucune affaire, est toujours affairé. Tout ce qu'il vous débite, en grimaces abonde; A force de façons, il assomme le monde, Sans cesse il a tout bas pour rompre l'entretien Un secret à vous dire, et ce secret n'est rien; De la moindre vétille il fait une merveille, Et...
Página xxxviii - ... not foresee the consequences. The dress of the Spaniards, the whiteness of their skins, their beards, their arms, appeared strange and surprising. The vast machines in which they had traversed the ocean, that seemed to move upon the waters with wings, and uttered a dreadful sound resembling thunder, accompanied with lightning and smoke, struck them with such terror that they began to respect their new guests as a superior order of beings, and concluded that they were children of the sun, who...
Página xxxvi - Non omnis moriar, multaque pars mei Vitabit Libitinam : usque ego postera Crescam laude recens dum Capitolium Scandet cum tacita virgine pontifex. Dicar qua violens obstrepit Aufidus Et qua pauper aquae Daunus agrestium Regnavit populorum, ex humili potens, Princeps Aeolium carmen ad Italos Deduxisse modos. Sume superbiam Quaesitam meritis et mihi Delphica Lauro cinge volens, Melpomene, comam.
