עמוד 244 - The harmony of their tongues hath into bondage Brought my too diligent ear : for several virtues Have I liked several women ; never any With so full soul, but some defect in her iJtd quarrel with the noblest grace she owed, And put it to the foil : but you, O you, So perfect, and so peerless, are created Of every creature's best.
עמוד 340 - II nome tuo, sia di sublime ingegno, E sia bella, gentil, cortese e saggia, E di vera onestade arrivi al segno : Onde materia a gli scrittori caggia Di celebrare il nome inclito e degno ; Tal che Parnasso, Pindo et Elicone Sempre Issabella, Issabella risuone. Dio così disse, e fe' serena intorno L' aria, e tranquillo il mar, più che mai fusse. Fe' l' alma casta al terzo ciel ritorno, E in braccio al suo Zerbin si ricondusse.
עמוד 84 - ... wife so young that I can never remember being without it. This being the case I think that without incurring your displeasure I might be at liberty to put off my return a fortnight, for the reason I have already explained. Do not be angry with me and say that you do not believe I wish to see you . . . for if my desire in this respect were satisfied, you would let me see you much more often than I do in Mantua. I commend myself once more to your Excellency and beg your pardon for writing so long...
עמוד 265 - Rome was not alone the shrine of the Christian faith, the nurse of noble souls, and the abode of the Muses, but the mother of nations. To how many was she not dearer and sweeter and more precious than their own land! ... In truth this is not the ruin of one city, but of the whole world."* VIII.
עמוד 244 - I have seen many excellent and noble women and have heard of some who are as illustrious for certain qualities, but in her alone among women all virtues were united and brought together. I have never seen nor heard of anyone who was her equal and know very few who have even come near her.
עמוד 83 - This makes you sometimes say that I am proud, because, knowing how much I deserve of you and how little I receive, I am tempted at times to alter my nature and to appear different from what I am. But even if you should always treat me badly, I would never cease to do what is right; and the less love you show me the more I shall always love you, because, in truth, this love is part of myself, and I became your wife so young that I can never remember being without it. This being the case I think that...
עמוד 40 - Majesty, how could we wish him to run the risk of this long and difficult journey, putting aside the child's tender and delicate age? And you must know what comfort and solace, in his father's present unhappy condition, we find in the presence of this dear son, the hope and joy of all our people and subjects. To deprive us of him would be to deprive us of life itself, and of all we count good and precious. If you take Federico away you might as well take away our life and state at once; . . . we...
עמוד 39 - As to the demand for our dearest first-born son Federico, besides being a cruel and almost inhuman thing for any one who knows the meaning of a mother's love, there are many reasons which render it difficult and impossible. Although we are quite sure that his person would be well cared for and protected by His Majesty, how could we wish him to run the risk of this long and difficult journey, considering the child's tender and delicate age? And you must know what comfort and solace, in his father's...
עמוד 25 - All the same, when you print any more, at a fair price, and on finer paper, with more careful corrections, we shall be glad to see them, and hope still to be served by you.
