Page 261 - Yet be within call — What an earthquake I feel in me ! And on the sudden my whole fabric totters. My blood within me turns, and through my veins, Parting with natural redness, I discern it Changed to a fatal yellow.
Page 216 - ... spretarumque agitur legum reus, utque peracta est causa prior, crimenque patet sine teste probatum, squalidus ad superos tollens reus ora manusque ' o cui ius caeli bis sex fecere labores, fer, precor' inquit ' opem ! nam tu mihi criminis auctor.
