Cytaty Jacques Delille

„tr. of Ignari hominumque locorumque erramus, vento huc vastis et fluctibus acti: multa tibi ante aras nostra cadet hostia dextra. — L'Énéide, livre premier (Virgil A. 1.325)“

— Jacques Delille
Instruct us of what skies, or what world's end, our storm-swept lives have found! Strange are these lands and people where we rove, compelled by wind and wave. Lo, this right hand shall many a victim on thine altar slay! — Vergil, Aeneid. Theodore C. Williams. trans. Boston. Houghton Mifflin Co., 1910. But tell a stranger, long in tempests toss'd, what earth we tread, and who commands the coast? Then on your name shall wretched mortals call, and offer'd victims at your altars fall. — Vergil, Aeneid. John Dryden. trans.

„I love to dream, but do not wish
To have a pin prick rouse me.“
