1868. Has patitnr poenas p^candi sola voluntas.

Nam seel lis intra se tacitum qui cogitat ullum,
Facti crimen habet (Z.) Juv. 13, 20a

SinM of the inteniwn.
Such pain the mere desire to sin incurs.
For he who inly plans some wicked act,
Has as much guilt, as tliough the thought were fact — Ed,

1869. Has poenas garrula lingua dedit. {L.)'i — This is the

punishment a babbling tongue has incurred,

1870. Has tantas virtutes ingentia vitia sequabant; inhumana

crudelitas, perfidia plusquam Punica, nihil veri, nihil
sancti, nullus Deorum metus, nullum jus jurandum,
nulla religio. (Z.) Liv. 21, 4.

Character of HannibaL
Consummate as were the powers of this famous man, they were
balanced by vices equally great. An inhuman cruelty and a more
than Punic perfidy stained his reputation, leaving him without
regard for truth or honour, and without reverence either for the
Gods, for the sanctity of an oath, or plighted faith.

1871. Hatez-vous lentement ; et, sans perdre courage,

Vingt fois Bur le metier remettez votre ouvrage :
Polissez-le sans cesse et le repolissez ;
Ajoutez quelquefois, et sou vent efEAcez,

(Fr.) Boil. A. P. 1, 171.

Hasten then, but full slowly : don't lose heart of grace ;
And your work twenty times on the easel replace.
Be continually polishing : polish again :
Add something to this part ; through that draw your pen.

Ed.
