Strana 138 - Man that is born of a woman Is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down : He fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.
Strana 145 - Slave. — Independence is the birth-right of man, and that which each of us ought to cherish beyond all earthly possessions. I will tell you what a slave is. A slave is he who watches, with abject spirit, the eye of another ; he waits timidly till another man shall have told him whether he is to be happy or miserable to-day : his comforts and his peace depend on the breath of another's mouth. No man can be this unless he pleases. If he has fallen as to externals, into another's power, still there...
Strana 136 - If you prick him, does he not bleed? If you tickle him, does he not laugh? If you poison him, does he not die?
Strana 135 - Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands? organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions ? Is he not fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same summer and winter, as a Christian is ? If you stab us, do we not bleed?
Strana 48 - My determination, as I have said, was taken. It was my fortune, that I no sooner entered the hall, than I perceived Clifford. Sir Joseph was by his side; and I saw had just been presenting him to the officers and gentlemen-volunteers of his battalion, in his new character of secretary to the commander-inchief.

Strana 187 - The newly arrived demanded, with a haughty and a furious tone, -.hat was the meaning of all he saw ? Sir Joseph, with admirable composure, and with the most edifying and saint-like tone and gesture, requested the intruder to moderate his anger, and to quit a dwelling where he had not the smallest right to be found. Mrs Landseer was appealed to, and decided for Sir Joseph as her true husband.
Strana 47 - ... foul spirits) lurk in their gloomy breasts, shall be forced out, and will appear as visible to all mankind, as if they were written with the beams of the Sun upon the pure and unclouded firmament. In the...
Strana 185 - ... many questions respecting the court he had visited, to all which Sir Joseph, who had seen the world, answered with consummate address ; and in fine, earnestly inquired how soon he would set out for London, to give an account to his employers of the success of his embassy. My principal, who thoroughly enjoyed this scene, and would hardly have been prevented from enjoying it, if he had seen a scaffold prepared for him the moment he quitted it, went on to overact his part. He pressed Captain Croke...
Strana 186 - The serjeant \vas luckily in the stables at the receipt of this message, and was therefore unacquainted with its import. Sir Joseph and I, now thoroughly alarmed, prepared for immediate departure. The conjuncture was portentous. Croke would be back in less than three hours, and would then detect the cheat that had been imposed upon him. The serjeant, if he were a fellow of any adroitness, would discover the trick sooner ; and he and the true Landseer would set on foot a pursuit after us, before we...
