Page 438 - Née vero hoc arro- 20 ganter dictum existiman velim. Nam philosophandi scientiam concedens multis, quod est oratoris proprium apte distincte ornate dicere, quoniam in eo studio aetatem consumpsi, si id mihi assumo, videor id meo iure quodam modo vindicare.
Page 198 - He calls, to be sure, the second accusative an "accusative of the predicate," thus recognizing its real character ; but it is not noticed under the head of predicative constructions.

Page 300 - In the subjunctive a thing is asserted simply as an idea conceived in the mind, so that the speaker does not at the same time declare it as actually existing; eg curro, Ut sudem.
Page vi - How the Romans themselves pronounced their language is not known, nor can it ever be known. Scholars may not agree in opinion in respect to the extent of this ignorance ; but if it were in itself very limited, pertaining, for instance, only to the sound of a single letter, it might with reason be made an objection to any attempt to imitate the original pronunciation of the language ; for the number of distinct sounds is so small in such a language as the Latin or our own, that every one of them runs...
Page 349 - Nam cum solitudo et vita sine amicis insidiarum et metus plena sit, ratio ipsa monet amicitias comparare, quibus partis confirmatur animus et a spe pariendarum voluptatum seiungi non potest.
