Page 267 - ... vestibulum ante ipsum primisque in faucibus Orci Luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae, pallentesque habitant Morbi, tristisque Senectus, 275 et Metus, et malesuada Fames, ac turpis Egestas, terribiles visu formae, Letumque, Labosque ; turn consanguineus Leti Sopor, et mala mentis Gaudia, mortiferumque adverso in limine Bellum, ferreique Eumenidum thalami, et Discordia demens, 280 vipereum crinem vittis innexa cruentis.
Page 31 - Dardaniusque Paris. Pallas quas condidit arces ipsa colat : nobis placeant ante omnia silvae. Torva leaena lupum sequitur, lupus ipse capellam, florentem cytisum sequitur lasciva capella, te Corydon, o Alexi : trahit sua quemque voluptas.
Page 317 - Soft is the strain when Zephyr gently blows, And the smooth stream in smoother numbers flows ; But when loud surges lash the sounding shore, The hoarse, rough verse should like the torrent roar : When Ajax strives some rock's vast weight to throw, The line too labours, and the words move slow : Not so, when swift Camilla scours the plain, Flies o'er the unbending corn, and skims along the main.
Page 282 - Tua me, genitor, tua tristis imago, 695 Saepius occurrens, haec limina tendere adegit; Stant sale Tyrrheno classes. Da iungere dextram, Da, genitor, teque amplexu ne subtrahe nostro.

'Fiet enim subito sus horridus atraque tigris ' Squamosusque draco et fulva cervice leaena, 'Aut acrem flammae sonitum dabit atque ita vinclis 'Excidet, aut in aquas tenues dilapsus abibit. 410 'Sed quanto ille magis formas se vertet in omnes, 'Tam tu, nate, magis contende tenacia vincla, 'Donec talis erit mutato corpore, qualem 'Videris, incepto tegeret cum lumina somno.
Page 194 - Charybdis 420 obsidet, atque imo barathri ter gurgite vastos sorbet in abruptum fluctus rursusque sub auras erigit alternos et sidera verberat unda.
Page 44 - Namque canebat, uti magnum per inane coacta semina terrarumque animaeque marisque fuissent, et liquidi simul ignis ; ut his exordia primis omnia et ipse tener mundi concreverit orbis...
Page 327 - ... primus ab aetherio venit Saturnus Olympo arma lovis fugiens et regnis exsul ademptis. 320 is genus indocile ac dispersum montibus altis composuit legesque dedit, Latiumque vocari maluit, his quoniam latuisset tutus in oris.
Page 52 - Amor docuit natorum sanguine matrem commaculare manus ; crudelis tu quoque, mater : crudelis mater magis, an puer improbus ille? improbus ille puer ; crudelis tu quoque, mater.
