Nor let thy vineyards slope toward the west,Georg. ii. 298.
For in the first of these passages he is not advising some other person, nor exhorting himself in the second, his advice in both passages being meant for all. Sometimes, again, we speak of ourselves as though we were referring to others, as in phrases like, “Servius asserts, Tullius denies it.”1
In that hour
Be it not mine beneath the open sky
To court soft sleep nor on the forest ridge
Amid the grass to lie.Georg. iii. 435.
