Publilius Syrus was a Syrian slave, a mime, and a writer of Latin maxims. Brought as a slave to Italy in the 1st century BC, he won his freedom by his wit and talent. His 1087 sayings presented here include: 1. As men, we are all equal in the presence of death. 2. The evil you do to others you may expect in return. 3. Allay the anger of your friend by kindness. 4. To dispute with a drunkard is to debate with an empty house. 5. Receive an injury rather than do one. 6. A trifling rumor may cause a great calamity. 7. To do two things at once is to do neither. 8. A hasty judgment is a first step to a recantation. 9. Suspicion cleaves to the dark side of things. 10. To love one’s wife with too much passion, is to be an adulterer. 11. Hard is it to correct the habit already formed. 12. A small loan makes a debtor; a great one, an enemy. 13. Age conceals the lascivious character; age also reveals it. 14. Bitter for a free man is the bondage of debt. 15. Even when we get what we wish, it is not ours. 16. We are interested in others, when they are interested in us. 17. Every one excels in something in which another fails. 18. Do not find your happiness in another’s sorrow. 19. An angry lover tells himself many lies. 20. A lover, like a torch, burns the more fiercely the more agitated.

Ink Stink Bait Revenge And Queen Elizabeth

In Ink, Stink Bait, Revenge, and Queen Elizabeth, Steven W. May and Arthur F. Marotti present a recently discovered "household book" from sixteenth-century England. Its main scribe, John Hanson, was a yeoman who worked as a legal agent in rural Yorkshire. His book, a miscellaneous collection of documents that he found useful or interesting, is a rare example of a middle-class provincial anthology that contains, in addition to works from the country’s cultural center, items of local interest seldom or never disseminated nationally. Among the literary highlights of the household book are unique copies of two ballads, whose original print versions have been lost, describing Queen Elizabeth’s procession through London after the victory over the Spanish Armada; two poems attributed to Elizabeth herself; and other verse by courtly writers copied from manuscript and print sources. Of local interest is the earliest-known copy of a 126-stanza ballad about a mid-fourteenth-century West Yorkshire feud between the Eland and Beaumont families. The manuscript’s utilitarian items include a verse calendar and poetic Decalogue, model legal documents, real estate records, recipes for inks and fish baits, and instructions for catching rabbits and birds. Hanson combined both professional and recreational interests in his manuscript, including material related to his legal work with wills and real estate transactions. As May and Marotti argue in their cultural and historical interpretation of the text, Hanson’s household book is especially valuable not only for the unusual texts it preserves but also for the ways in which it demonstrates the intersection of the local and national and of popular and elite cultures in early modern England.

A Framework For Geodesign

"Professor emeritus and landscape architect Carl Steinitz has been lecturing and publishing extensively about landscape planning for generations of landscape architects. He insists that, even though scale matters, the word ‘design’ is also valid at the regional level in what he calls ‘scenario-based studies of alternative futures’. This is congruent with one of the messages of this themed issue of JoLA: the traditional perception that ethics is the basis for planning and that aesthetics mainly belongs to the realm of design is fallacious; both concepts are equally important in both activities. In his new book Steinitz presents a methodology that provides a design framework and supporting technology to control geographical information, aiming at large-scale scenarios for landscape developments. Ideas from key lectures that have been published as articles such as ‘A Framework for Theory Applicable to the Education of Landscape Architects (and Other Environmental Design Professionals)’ (Landscape Journal, Fall 1990) and ‘Design is a verb, design is a noun’ (Landscape Journal, Fall 1995) are brought together with a number of case studies explaining the dilemmas involved in the organization and management of large and complex geodesign studies and projects. A Framework for Geodesign explores the potential for greater utilization of geographic data in the design processes of landscape architecture. In a way, Steinitz is here continuing and developing Ian McHarg's quest as presented in his seminal Design with Nature (1969). Graphic design is sketchy — the book looks more like a draft report. This might be intentional but undermines its potential importance; A Framework for Geodesign offers new ways of thinking about design at the regional scale and is an important contribution to this emerging field."--
