This is 1614: Scaliger…

This is 1614: Scaliger – the most erudite man in Europe, who read Greek, Syriac, Hebrew, Arabic, ect., & whom Huet compared to Montaigne as one would today compare Montaigne to, say, an airport-business book writer , translating and commenting on Arabic proverbs into Latin.In this line of wisdom, I cherish the following expression about something hideous: “even more hideous than words without deeds”: أقبح من قول بلا فعل (known then but not in this book).
