Strana 198 - Babylon, making its course to the south, the palaces lie the one on the east, and the other on the west side of the river; both built at exceeding costs and expense.
Strana 398 - The great mountain must crumble ; The strong beam must break ; And the wise man wither away like a plant.
Strana 400 - Were our Master in the position of the ruler of a State or the chief of a Family, we should find verified the description which has been given of a sage's rule: — he would plant the people, and forthwith they would be established; he would lead them on, and forthwith they would follow him; he would make them happy, and forthwith multitudes would resort to his dominions; he would stimulate them, and forthwith they would be harmonious.

Strana 4 - He thus seems to himself and his court to be in the centre of the universe, and turning to the north, assuming the attitude of a subject, he acknowledges in prayer and by his position that he is inferior to heaven, and to heaven alone. Round him on the pavement are the nine circles of as many heavens, consisting of nine stones, then eighteen, then twenty-seven, and so on in successive multiples of nine till the square of nine, the favourite number of Chinese philosophy, is reached in the outermost...

The Emperor made a slight bow of acknowledgement, and the Prince of Kung falling upon both knees at the foot of the throne, His Majesty appeared to speak to him — I say appeared, because no sound reached my ears. We had been told, however, that the Emperor would speak in Manchu, and that the Prince would interpret. Accordingly as...
