Page 209 - Ma quando si acquistano stati in una provincia disforme di lingua, di costumi et d'ordini, qui sono le difficulta, a qui bisogna avere gran fortuna e grande industria a tenerli."

Page 203 - So there a while they afterwards remained, Him to refresh, and her late wounds to heale : During which space she there as Princess rained, And changing all that forme of common-weale The liberty of women did repeale, Which they had long usurpt; and, them restoring To mens subjection, did true Justice deale, That all they, as a Goddesse her adoring, Her wisedome did admire, and hearkned to her bring.

Quia si fana eadem bene constructa sunt, necesse est ut a cultu daemonum in obsequium veri Dei debeant commutari...
Page 218 - Nor lawes of men, that common- weales containe, Nor bands of nature, that wilde beastes restraine, Can keepe from outrage and from doing wrong, Where they may hope a kingdome to obtaine : No faith so firme, no trust can be so strong, No love so lasting then, that may enduren long.
