Page 194 - Si l'amour du pays doit ici prévaloir, C'est son bien seulement que vous devez vouloir, Et cette liberté qui lui semble si chère N'est pour Rome, Seigneur, qu'un bien imaginaire, Plus nuisible qu'utile, et qui n'approche pas De celui qu'un bon prince apporte à ses Etats.
Page 29 - And, lastly, We do hereby, for Us, our heirs and successors, grant and declare that these our Letters Patent, or the enrolment or exemplification thereof, shall be in and by all things...
Page 207 - Abeunt studia in mores'; nay, there is no stand or impediment in the wit, but may be wrought out by fit studies: like as diseases of the body may have appropriate exercises; bowling is good for the stone and reins, shooting for the lungs and breast, gentle walking for the stomach, riding for the head and the like; so if a man's wit be wandering, let him study the mathematics; for in demonstrations, if his wit be called away never so little, he must begin again; if his...

Page 311 - Aliae panduntur inanes 740 suspensae ad ventos, aliis sub gurgite vasto infectum eluitur scelus aut exuritur igni : quisque suos patimur manes; exinde per amplum mittimur Elysium et pauci laeta arva tenemus; donec longa dies, perfecto temporis orbe, 745 concretam exemit labem, purumque relinquit aetherium sensum atque aurai simplicis ignem.
Page 307 - Omnis homines, Patres conscripti, qui de rebus dubiis consultant, ab odio, amicitia, ira atque misericordia, vacuos esse decet.
Page 234 - I know but one way of fortifying my soul against these gloomy presages and terrors of mind, and that is, by securing to myself the friendship and protection of that Being who disposes of events and governs futurity. He sees, at one view, the whole thread...
Page 206 - To spend too much time in studies, is sloth : to use them too much for ornament, is affectation ; to make judgment wholly by their rules, is the humor of a scholar : they perfect nature, and are perfected by experience: for natural abilities are like natural plants, that need pruning by study ; and studies themselves do give forth directions too much at large, except they be bounded in by experience.
