O que há-de vir e justifica

por Carla Hilário Quevedo, em 29.09.08

"The writers of the lives of the ancient philosophers used to, in the first place, to speak of their lineage; and they tell us that in process of time several illustrious great families accounted in their glory to be branched from such or such a wise man. Why now should that method be omitted in this little history of our Malmesbury philosopher? Who though but of plebeian descent, his renown has and will give brightness to his name and family, which hereafter may arise glorious and flourish in riches and may justly take an honour to be of kin to this worthy person, for his learning, both at home and abroad." Primeiro parágrafo da vida de Thomas Hobbes, segundo John Aubrey, em Brief Lives.
