Page 89 - SKI» non in Caesare tantum Nomen erat , nec fama ducis : sed nescia virtus Stare loco; solusque pudor, non vincere bello. Acer, et indomitus ; quo spes , quoque ira vocasset , Ferre manum , et nunquam temerando parcere ferro Successus urgere suos : instare favori Numinis : impellens quidquid sibi summa petenti Obstaret; gaudensque viam fecisse ruina.

Page 98 - Tusculosque colles, et quodcunque iacet sub urbe frigus, Fidenas veteres brevesque Rubras et quod virgineo cruore gaudet Annae pomiferum nemus Perennae.
