age vero ceteris in rebus qua ille sit temperantia, considerate:
come now consider also what restraint he has in other things:
1 of 5
unde illam tantam celeritatem et tam incredibilem cursum inventum putatis?
from where do you think that such great speed as that and such an incredible journey was found?
2 of 5
non enim illum eximia vis remigum aut ars inaudita quaedam gubernandi aut venti aliqui novi tam celeriter in ultimas terras pertulerunt, sed eae res, quae ceteros remorari solent, non retardarunt:
for it was not an exceptional force of rowers, nor some unheard skill in steering, nor new winds, which brought him so quickly to furthest lands:, but those things which are accustomed to delay others did not slow him down:
3 of 5
non avaritia ab instituto cursu ad praedam aliquam devocavit, non libido ad voluptatem, non amoenitas ad delectationem, non nobilitas urbis ad cogitionem, non denique labor ipse ad quietem;
avarice did not call him away towards pleasure, charm did not call him away towards delight, the nobility of a city did not call him away towards getting to know it, and furthermore, hard work did not call him away to rest;
4 of 5
postremo signa et tabulas ceteraque ornamenta Graecorum oppidorum, quae ceteri tollenda esse arbitrantur, ea sibi ille ne visenda quidem existimavit.
finally, as for the statues and pictures and other embellishments of Greek towns, which other men consider things to be taken away, he did not even judge them as things for him to go and see.
