Jeffrey Shaw Compendium Citas Latinas: Festina lente Apresúrate lentamente El oxímoron es una figura retórica que consiste en la combinación de dos elementos lógicamente contradictorios. Un ejemplo sugestivo de esta unión de lo opuesto es presentado por el proverbio festina lente, apresúrate lentamente. En su biografía de Augusto, Suetonio afirma que el primer emperador romano tomó estas palabras como lema personal (Suet. sat celeriter fieri quidquid fiat satis bene, Suficientemente rápido se hace aquello que se hace bienAulo Gellio y Macrobio también se refieren a la fascinación de Augusto con esta frase. La sabiduría encerrada en la máxima festina lente cautivó a sucesivas generaciones. Aldo Manucio se destaca entre los editores de su tiempo por ser, además de impresor, un humanista de alto nivel. Erasmo cifra en la sabiduría de este proverbio el feliz gobierno de Augusto y Vespasiano, y ve a su editor, Manucio, como el heredero de este principio.

In many instances, amusing little hand-written captions or verses have been added. Who made it? Who was Christine, and where is the scrapbook now? What sort of pictures does the book contain? Plate 14 Where did the pictures come from? What was the purpose of the books? Plate 81 The two men no doubt shared a sympathetic understanding. Plate 11 What about the silhouettes?

ILLUSTRATION ART: THE ART OF RICHARD THOMPSON, day 4 I am one of those who ranks the drawn line alongside the discovery of fire and the invention of agriculture on the list of human advances. However, I have learned after years with this blog that a number of you actually believe painting, not drawing, is the true test of an artist. As I understand this rather remarkable claim, an artist must work with the full symphony of elements presented by a painting in order to ascend to the higher tiers. It is with this audience in mind-- the people who incomprehensibly remain unseduced by a jaunty line-- that I've selected a painting as today's example from The Art of Richard Thompson. Although Richard's medium of choice in more recent years has been pen and ink, The Art of Richard Thompson contains a number of works in full color, ranging from oil paintings and watercolor to pastel and colored pencil.
