Il personaggio di Virgilio, così come descritto da Asconio Pedanio, è eminentemente piacevole.

I find the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis very fascinanting. It totally dismantles the long-held idea that language is just the "dress" of thought.

L'ipotesi di Sapir-Whorf è, secondo me, molto affascinante. Smantella totalmente l’idea favorita per molto tempo che la lingua non sia che il “vestito” del pensiero.

All enduring works of literature gather new meanings from age to age.

Augusto scrisse ripetutamente a Virgilio per chiedergli degli estratti del suo poema epico che era in stesura, ma il poeta declinò.

The President is always a controversial choice, always an infuriating but fascinating character. His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it. (The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy)

Il presidente è sempre una scelta controversa, sempre un carattere esasperante ma affascinante. Non ha il compito di esercitare il potere, ma di distoglierne l’attenzione. (Guida della galassia per l’autostoppista)

The poetical comparison of a human being to a god, especially in beauty, is a frequent conceit.

Penso io che queste parole siano equivalenti alle parole italiane 'grande utilizzabilità'. Puoi sceglierla come criterio per fare un glossario ecc.
