الصفحة 314 - ... when I see kings lying by those who deposed them, when I consider rival wits placed side by side, or the holy men that divided the world with their contests and disputes, I reflect with sorrow and astonishment on the little competitions, factions, and debates of mankind. When I read the several dates of the tombs, of" some that died yesterday, and some six hundred years ago, I consider that great day when we shall all of us be contemporaries, and make our appearance together.
الصفحة 313 - When I look upon the tombs of the great, every emotion of envy dies in me ; when I read the epitaphs of the beautiful, every inordinate desire goes out; when I meet with the grief of parents upon a tomb-stone, my heart melts with compassion ; when I see the tomb of the parents themselves, I consider the vanity of grieving for those whom we must quickly follow.
الصفحة 312 - I began to reflect to myself, ' we poor feeble mortals, who can claim but a short life in comparison, complain as though a wrong was done us if one of our number dies in the course of nature, or has fallen on the field of battle ; 'and here in one spot are lying stretched out before me the corpses of so many cities ! Servius, why do you not control yourself, and remember that that is man's life into which you have been born ? ' Believe me, I found myself in no small degree strengthened by these reflections.
الصفحة 69 - ... dear, to be allowed to throw away what you may have saved from the wreck? As to my expenses, I entreat you, my dearest life, to let other people, who can do so perfectly if they will, relieve you; and be sure as you love me not to let your anxiety injure your health, which you know is so delicate. Night and day you are always before my eyes : I can see you making every exertion on my behalf, and I fear you may not be able to bear it. But I know well that all our hopes are in you ; so be very...
الصفحة 326 - Oh, what a formidable guest to have had ! and yet je ne'n suis fas fdche [I am not sorry] he was in such a very agreeable mood. But after his arrival at Philippus's house, on the evening of the second day of the Saturnalia, the whole establishment was so crowded with soldiers that even the room where Caesar himself was to dine could hardly be kept clear from them ; it is a fact that there were two thousand men ! Of course I was nervous about what might be the case with me next day, and so Cassius...
الصفحة 328 - Well, I will only say that he was greatly pleased, and seemed to enjoy himself. He told me that he should be one day at Puteoli. and the next near Baiae. Here you have the story of his visit — or, shall I say, 'billeting'? — which, I told you, was a thing one would shrink from, but did not give much trouble. I am for Tusculum next after a short stay here. When he was passing Dolabella's house, but nowhere else, the whole guard was paraded in arms on either side of him as he rode ; I have it from...
الصفحة iii - CICERO. —THE LIFE AND LETTERS OF MARCUS TULLIUS CICERO: being a New Translation of the Letters included in Mr. Watson's Selection. With Historical and Critical Notes, by Rev. GE JEANS, MA, Fellow of Hertford College, Oxford, Assistant-Master in Haileybury College, 8vo.
الصفحة 314 - ... this time comes instead of stepping forward by your philosophy to anticipate that result. And if even those who are low in the grave have any consciousness at all, such was her love for you and her tenderness for all around her, that surely she does not wish to see this in you. Make this a tribute then to her who is dead ; to all your friends and relations who are mourning in your grief ; and make it to your country also, that if in anything the need should arise she...
الصفحة 68 - I see that everything on your part is done both bravely and lovingly, nor does that surprise me, but what pains me is that it should be my fate to expose you to such severe suffering to relieve my own: for Publius Valerius, who has been most attentive, wrote me word, and it cost me many tears in the reading, how you had been forced to go from the temple of Vesta to the Valerian office.
الصفحة 317 - ... able to make up for the sorrow I feel when I think of our country, than our country is for my sorrow at home. I am therefore looking forward all the more eagerly to your coming, and long to see you as early as that may possibly be; no greater alleviation can be offered me than a meeting between us for friendly intercourse and conversation. I hope however that your return is to take place, as I hear it is, very shortly. As for myself, while there are abundant reasons for wanting to see you as...
