Page 295 - Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
Page 25 - luppiter; audi, pater patrate populi Albani; audi tu, populus Albanus. Ut illa palam prima postrema ex illis tabulis cerave recitata sunt sine dolo malo, utique ea hic hodie rectissime intellecta sunt, illis legibus populus Romanus prior non deficiet.
Page 103 - ... et trahentes alii alios, prout postularet locus, tanto silentio in summum evasere, ut non custodes solum fallerent, sed ne canes quidem, sollicitum animal ad nocturnos strepitus, excitarent. Anseres non fefellere, quibus sacris lunonis in summa inopia cibi tamen abstinebatur.
Page 78 - ... qua lege tribuniciis rogationibus telum acerrimum datum est. Aliam deinde 25 consularem legem de provocatione — unicum prsesidium libertatis — decemvirali potestate eversam, non restituunt modo, sed etiam in posterum muniunt, sanciendo novam legem, ne quis ullum magistratum sine provocatione crearet: qui creasset, eum jus fasque esset occidi, neve ea 30 csedes capitalis noхse haberetur.
Page 109 - Plurimum audaciae ad pericula capessenda, plurimum consilii inter ipsa pericula erat: nullo labore aut corpus fatigari, aut animus vinci poterat. Caloris ac frigoris patientia par: cibi potionisque desiderio naturali, non voluptate, modus flnitus: vigiliarum somnique nee die, nee nocte discriminata tempora.
Page 167 - Via tantum interest perangusta, velut ad id ipsum de industria relicto spatio; deinde paulo latior patescit campus; inde colles adsurgunt.
Page 173 - Si id moritur, quod fieri oportebit, profanum esto, ñeque scelus esto. Si quis rumpet occidetve insciens, ne fraus esto. Si quis clepsit, ne populo scelus esto, neve cui cleptum erit. Si atro die faxit insciens, probe factum esto. Si nocte sive luce, si servus sive liber faxit, probe factum esto.
