Strana 258 - And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life: In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
Strana 62 - Caesar ? Why should that name be sounded more than yours ? Write them together, yours is as fair a name; Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well; Weigh them, it is as heavy; conjure with 'em, Brutus will start a spirit as soon as Caesar.
Strana 10 - Auditis, an me ludit amabilis Insania ? Audire et videor pios Errare per lucos amoenae Quos et aquae subeunt et aurae.

Strana 177 - Notre gouvernement est une espèce de monstre, dont les formes et l'action sont également révoltantes; il détruit tout ce qu'il touche, et se dévore lui-même : ce dernier excès fait l'unique consolation de ses nombreuses victimes.
Strana 170 - Les gens de lettres et les personnes de goût connaissent ses jolis romans, où les grâces de l'imagination s'allient à la légèreté du style, au ton de la philosophie , au sel de la critique.
Strana 178 - Ces hommes purs, dont l'âme ardente aspirait la liberté, que la philosophie avait préparés pour elle dans le calme de l'étude et l'austérité de la retraite , se sont flattés, comme toi, que le renversement de la tyrannie...
