Non ut laudemur, fed ut prosimus. Equidem sic propè ab adolefcentia animatus fui, ut inania famæ COAtemnam, veraque confecter bona. In qua cogitatione fæpius defixus, facilius ab animo meo potui impetrare, ut (quamvis fcirem sordescere magis & magis ftudia Literarum, maximéque ea quæ propriè artem Grammaticen spectant) nihilominus paulisper, non quidem seponerem, fed remissius tamen tractarem studia graviora ; iterumque in manus sumerem veteres adolescentiæ labores, laboreque novo inter tot Curas divulgarem.

G. J. Vossius.

Le grand objet de l'art etymologique n'est pas de rendre raison de l'origine de tous les mots sans exception, & j'ose dire que ce seroit un but assez frivole. Cet art est principalement recommandable en ce qu'il fournit à la philosophie des materiaux & des observations pour elever le grand edifice.de la theorie generale des Langues.

M. Le President de BROSSES.
