In quo lepide soceri mei persona lusit is , qui elegantissime id facere potuit , Lucilius : quam lepide lexeis compostae! ut tesserulae, omnes arte pavimento atque emblemate vermiculato ! hanc formam Pideritius cum illa , I.
Page xcviii - Hominis autem imaginem gypso e facie ipsa primus omnium expressit ceraque in earn formam gypsi infusa emendare instituit Lysistratus Sicyonius frater Lysippi, de quo diximus. Hie et similitudines reddere instituit ; ante eum quam pulcherrimas facere studebant.
Page 24 - Latinis verbis huius verbi vim vel maximam semper putavi. quem enim nos ineptum vocamus, is mihi videtur ab hoc nomen habere ductum, quod 'non' sit 'aptus', idque in sermonis nostri consuetudine perlate patet. nam qui aut tempus quid postulet non videt aut plura loquitur aut se ostentat aut eorum quibuscum est vel dignitatis vel commodi rationem non habet aut denique in aliquo genere aut inconcinnus aut multus est, is 'ineptus

Page 75 - Beyond the pomp of dress; for loveliness Needs not the foreign aid of ornament, But is when unadorned adorned the most.
Page 83 - I cannot but imagine the virtuous heroes, legislators, and patriots, of every age and country, are bending from their elevated seats to witness this contest, as if they were incapable, till it be brought to a favourable issue, of enjoying their eternal repose.
