Page 206 - Ordinis haec virtus erit et venus, aut ego fallor, Ut jam nunc dicat jam nunc debentia dici, Pleraque differat et praesens in tempus omittat; Hoc amet, hoc spernat promissi carminis auctor.
Page 216 - Vultum verba decent, iratum plena minarum, Ludentem lasciva, severum seria dictu. Format enim natura prius nos intus ad omnem Fortunarum habitum ; juvat aut impellit ad iram Aut ad humum maerore gravi deducit et angit ; 110 Post effert animi motus interprete lingua.
Page 245 - Munus et officium, nil scribens ipse, docebo ; Unde parentur opes ; quid alat formetque poetam ; Quid deceat, quid non ; quo virtus, quo ferat error.
Page 78 - Caelum non animum mutant qui trans mare currunt. Strenua nos exercet inertia : navibus atque Quadrigis petimus bene vivere. Quod petis hic est, Est Ulubris, animus si te non deficit aequus.
Page 210 - Ut silvae foliis pronos mutantur in annos, 60 Prima cadunt ; ita verborum vetus interit aetas, Et juvenum ritu florent modo nata vigentque.
Page 225 - Nor force th' unwilling audience to behold What may with grace and eloquence be told. Let not Medea, with unnatural rage, Slaughter her mangled infants on the stage: Nor Atreus his detested feast prepare, Nor Cadmus roll a snake, nor Progne wing the air.
Page 245 - The critic, who with nice discernment knows What to his country and his friends he owes ; How various nature warms the human breast, To love the parent, brother, friend, or guest ; What the great functions of our judges are, Of senators, and generals sent to war ; He can distinguish, with unerring art, The strokes peculiar to each different part.
Page 180 - Tres mihi convivae prope diflentire videntur, Pofcentes vario multum diverfa palato. Quid dem ? quid non dem? renuis quod tu, jubet alter: Quod petis, id fane eft invifum acidumque duobus.
Page 163 - When conquer'd Greece brought in her captive arts, She triumph'd o'er her savage conquerors' hearts; Taught our rough verse its numbers to refine. And our rude style with elegance to shine.
Page 5 - Condo & compono, quae mox depromere poffim. Ac ne forte roges, quo me duce, quo Lare tuter ; Nullius add ictus jurare in verba magiftri, Quo me cunque rapit tempeftas, deferor hofpes.
