Example text

Verum apud tegm enta fictionum nullae sunt rhetoricae partes. — De Gen. Deor. X I V . 7. ab his accusentur illustres, quaeso dicant num quid Homeri carmen umquam legerint; num quid Hesiodi, V irgilii, H oratii, Iuvenalis, e t aliorum huiusm odi plurium . E t si se legisse fate­ antur, exprim ant quorsum has crim inum suasiones invenerint, u t ip si videntes, quod nondum vidim us, cum eis m alem eritos condemnemus. Attam en negare superfluum est; quis autem , ac­ cusatione audita, non percipiat quia numquam legerint, cum liquido debeamus credere, si vidissent, in tarn stolidam sententiam non venissent?

O detestanda tem eritas! Audere caecum natum in propatulo de coloribus ferre sententiam ! S ic olim, u t isti praesides venerandi faciunt, audivi Phoroneum apud Argivos, Lycurgum apud Lacedaem ones, M inoem apud Cretenses, e t apud M yrm idones Aeacum factitare solitos. Sed u t eo veniam , quo fert animus, quicquid isti reverendi iudices blaterent, non sunt, u t ipsi volunt, poetae crim inum sua­ sores, quin immo, si Sana m ente e t non livore insano perciti eorum legantur volum ina, impulsores invenientur, nunc suasissim i, nunc acerrim i pro exigentia temporum in virtu tes.

N ec m e latet, quid nunc obici dissentientium possit argutiis: nondum scilicet pervenisse m e ad vera senectutis incommoda; esse aetatem iam nec floridam nec virentem , adhuc solidam tarnen ac valentem ; m utandum stilum , cum ad ilia pervenero; loqui me fortiter nondum annis invalidum , dum prim a e t recta senectus, u t satiricus a it, necdum terram curvus adspicio necdum auxiliari baculo sed pedibus m eis feror. N ovi omnia neque ignoro aetatem quam libet tripartitam esse. Prim a pars viridis, unde apud Vergilium “ viridis senectus” , secunda vero dicitur adulta, tertia autem praeceps, unde e t suam praecipitem senectutem vocat Cicero, ea prorsus aetate, quo nunc ego sum, cum mea nondum praeceps sed adhunc D ei munere viridis sit senectus.
