Page 241 - Though I look old, yet I am strong and lusty: For in my youth I never did apply Hot and rebellious liquors in my blood; Nor did not with unbashful forehead woo The means of weakness and debility; Therefore my age is as a lusty winter, Frosty, but kindly: let me go with you; I'll do the service of a younger man In all your business and necessities.
Page 268 - Cor tibi rite salit ? positum est algente catino Durum olus, et populi cribro decussa farina. • Tentemus fauces : tenero latet ulcus in ore Putre, quod haud deceat plebeia radere beta.

Mihi festa luce coquatur Urtica, et fissa fumosum sinciput aure: Ut tuus iste nepos olim satur anseris extis, Cum morosa vago singultiet inguine vena, Patriciae immeiat vulvae ? mihi trama figurae Sit reliqua ; ast illi tremat omento popa venter ?

Page 44 - Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
