[27] The type which indicates cause by effect is common both in poets and orators. As examples from poetry I may quote:

Pale death with equal foot knocks at the poor man's door

Hor. Od. I. iv. 13.

There pale diseases dwell and sad old age;

Aen. vi. 275
while the orator will speak of “headlong anger”,
“cheerful youth” or “slothful ease”.
