OF

GENERAL SIR ROBERT WILSON.

VOLUME II.

«'Αλλο είδος, εάν αυτός τις ή γεννάδας την ψυχήν και μεγαλόψυχος και τούτον ευγενή φασίν. ΚΑΙ ΤΗΣ ΓΕ ΕΥΓΕΝΕΙΑΣ ΑΥΤΗ ΚΡΑΤΙΣΤΗ. της άρα ευγενείας, το μεν από προγόνων επιεικών, το δε δυναστών, το δε ενδόξων, ΤΟ ΔΕ ΑΠΟ ΤΗΣ ΑΥΤΟΥ ΚΑΛΟΚΑΓΑΘΙΑΣ.

“And, lastly, him also they call noble that hath his own inbred dignity and greatness of spirit. THIS IS THE BEST KIND OF NOBILITY. So that nobility hath its ground either from ancestors eminent for justice; or from such as have held place and power; or from such as have acquired rank and fame; or FROM A MAN'S OWN UPRIGHTNESS AND HONOUR." - PLATO, quoted by SELDEN.
