第 221 頁 - Sexque datis leto diversaque vulnera passis, ultima restabat ; quam toto corpore mater, tota veste tegens, ' Unam minimamque relinque ! de multis minimam posco ' clamavit
第 232 頁 - The darksome pines that o'er yon rocks reclin'd Wave high, and murmur to the hollow wind, The wand'ring streams that shine between the hills, The grots that echo to the tinkling rills, The dying gales that pant upon the trees, The lakes that quiver to the curling breeze; No more these scenes my meditation aid, Or lull to rest the visionary maid.

第 576 頁 - Noctem addens operi, famulasque ad lumina longo Exercet penso, castum ut servare cubile Coniugis et possit parvos educere natos, Haud secus Ignipotens nec tempore segnior illo Mollibus e stratis opera ad fabrilia surgit.
第 19 頁 - Sybarites are said to have occupied the neighbouring plain ; the Dorians therefore appear to have the fairest claim to these majestic and everlasting monuments. But at what period were they erected ? To judge from their form we must conclude that they are the oldest specimens of Grecian architecture now in existence. In beholding them, and contemplating their solidity, bordering upon heaviness, we are tempted to consider them as...
