Страница 266 - The Son of man goeth, as it is written of him ; but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.
Страница 75 - The world generally gives its admiration, not to the man who does what nobody else even attempts to do, but to the man who does best what multitudes do well.
Страница 110 - Voltaire is the prince of buffoons. His merriment is without disguise or restraint.

Страница 266 - Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
Страница 105 - He was one of those people whom it is impossible either to hate or to respect. His temper was sweet, his affections warm, his spirits lively, his passions strong, and his principles weak.
