Jupiter ut liquidis stagnare paludibus orbem, Et superesse videt de tot modo millibus unum, 325 Et superesse videt de tot modo millibus unam, Innocuos ambos, cultores numinis ambos, Nubila disjecit, nimbisque aquilone remotis Et coelo terras ostendit et aethera terris.

"Whate'er the' unbounded Roman power obeys. All climes and nations shall record my praise; If 'tis allow'd to poets to divine, One half of round eternity is mine.
Pàgina xii - Amphitrite. utque erat et tellus illic et pontus et aer, sic erat instabilis tellus, innabilis unda, lucis egens aer: nulli sua forma manebat, obstabatque aliis aliud, quia corpore in uno frigida pugnabant calidis, umentia siccis, mollia cum duris, sine pondere habentia pondus.
Pàgina 1 - Ignea convexi vis et sine pondere coeli Emicuit, summaque locum sibi legit in arce; Proximus est aer illi levitate, locoque ; Densior his tellus, elementaque grandia traxit, Et pressa est gravitate sui ; circumfluus humor Ultima possedit, solidumque coercuit orbem.
Pàgina viii - FABLES were the first pieces of wit that made their appearance in the world, and have been still highly valued, not only in times of the greatest simplicity, but among the most polite ages of mankind.

Pàgina 90 - Herse ibat, eratque decus pompae comitumque suarum. 725 obstipuit forma love natus, et aethere pendens non secus exarsit, quam cum Balearica plumbum funda iacit: volat illud et incandescit eundo, et quos non habuit, sub nubibus invenit ignes.
Pàgina 207 - Sed tamen erubuit, subitusque invita notavit Ora rubor rursusque evanuit, ut solet ae'r Purpureus fieri, cum primum Aurora movetur, Et breve post tempus candescere solis ab ortu.
Pàgina viii - ... the fall of man, the destruction of mankind by the flood, the preservation of Noah and his family, the unity of God, and the promise he made to that patriarch ; and, consequently, the necessity of abjuring the worship of idols, which properly constituted the end of the mysteries, and obtained for them the name of regeneration, and for...
Pàgina 1 - Hanc Deus et melior litem Natura diremit : Nam coelo terras, et terris abscidit undas, Et liquidum spisso * secrevit ab aere coelum. Quae postquam evolvit, caecoque exemit acervo, Dissociata locis concordi pace ligavit.
Pàgina 14 - ... concipit iras, Conciliumque vocat : tenuit mora nulla vocatos. Est via sublimis, coelo manifesta sereno ; Lactea nomen habet, candore notabilis ipso : Hac iter est superis ad magni tecta Tonantis 170 Regalemque domum. Dextra laevaque deorum Atria nobilium valvis celebrantur apertis ; Plebs habitat diversa locis ; a fronte potentes Coelicolae clarique suos posuere penates.
