Страница 57 - I recommend my son, if he has' the misfortune to become king, to remember that he owes himself to the happiness of his fellow citizens, to forget all hatred and resentment, and especially that which relates to the misfortunes and sorrows I now undergo. Let him remember that he can only make his subjects happy by reigning according to the laws — but that a king can only cause the laws to be respected; and do all the good he wishes, SO long as he possesses the necessary power ; but that when ths...
Страница 304 - They that turn many to righteousness, shall shine as the stars for ever and ever.
