344. lappuse - Conversis studiis, aetas animusque virilis Quaerit opes et amicitias, inservit honori ; Commisisse cavet quod mox mutare laboret. Multa senem circumveniunt incommoda ; vel quod Quaerit, et inventis miser abstinet, ac timet uti ; Vel quod res omnes timide gelideque ministrat, Dilator, spe longus, iners, avidusque futuri, Difficilis, querulus, laudator temporis acti Se puero, castigator censorque minorum.
345. lappuse - Exegi monumentum aere perennius Regalique situ pyramidum altius, Quod non imber edax, non Aquilo impotens Possit diruere aut innumerabilis Annorum series et fuga temporum.
341. lappuse - Et sermone opus est modo tristi, saepe iocoso, Defendente vicem modo rhetoris atque poetae, Interdum urbani parcentis viribus atque Extenuantis eas consulto. Ridiculum acri Fortius et melius magnas plerumque secat res.
632. lappuse - ... felices. nunc ego resto. confice; namque instat fatum mihi triste, Sabella quod puero cecinit divina mota anus urna: 30 "hunc neque dira venena nec hosticus auferet ensis nec laterum dolor aut tussis nec tarda podagra: garrulus hunc quando consumet cumque : loquaces, si sapiat, vitet, simul atque adoleverit aetas.
439. lappuse - ... subiit iuga tempore taurus non domito frenos ore momordit equus. non domus ulla fores habuit, non fixus in agris qui regeret certis finibus arva, lapis...
461. lappuse - Indulge genio; carpamus dulcia; nostrum est Quod vivis; cinis et manes et fabula fies. Vive memor leti; fugit hora; hoc quod loquor inde est.
