"Ornari res ipsa negat, contenta doceri" But Virgil, who never attempted the lyric verse, is everywhere elegant, sweet, and flowing in his hexameters. His words are not only chosen, but the places in which he ranks them for the sound; he who removes them from the station wherein their master sets them spoils the harmony.
Sed supplementum videtur mensurari per indigentiam; majoris enim valoris est supplementum quod majorem supplet indigentiam.... Item hoc probatur signo, quia videmus quod illo tempore quo vina deficiunt quia magis indigeremus eis ipsa fiunt cariora....
Peter, who asserts that we shall be "made partakers of the divine nature." Let us begin by a little illustration. * ... Imago Dei tripliciter potest considerari in homine.

And by him that spake only as a philosopher and natural man, it was well said, Pompa mortis magis terret quam mors ipsa. Groans and convulsions, and a discolored face, and friends weeping, and blacks and obsequies, and the like, show death terrible.
Anne as kneeling before a terrific dragon or, as the Italians call it, "insect," about the size of a Crystal Palace pleiosaur.

"Pars minima est ipsa puella sui!"
