第 64 頁 - OF all the causes which conspire to blind Man's erring judgment, and misguide the mind, What the weak head with strongest bias rules, Is pride, the never-failing vice of fools.
第 89 頁 - God, far from the confines of Egypt. If you forgive me, I rejoice : if you are angry, I can bear it ; the die is cast, the book is written, to be read either now or by posterity, — I care not which. I may well wait a century for a reader, as God has waited six thousand years for an observer.
第 89 頁 - It is now eighteen months since I got the first glimpse of light, three months since the dawn, very few days since the unveiled sun, most admirable to gaze on, burst out upon me. Nothing holds me ; I will indulge in my sacred fury ; I will triumph over mankind by the honest confession, that I have stolen the golden vases of the Egyptians*, to build up a tabernacle for my God far away from the confines of Egypt.
第 16 頁 - And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.

第 5 頁 - Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
第 13 頁 - Tis yours, unmoved, to sever and to meet ; No pledge is sacred, and no home is sweet ! Who that would ask a heart to dulness wed, The waveless calm, the slumber of the dead ? No ; the wild bliss of Nature needs alloy, And Fear and Sorrow fan the fire of Joy...
第 37 頁 - In the same class must be ranked some, both of the gravest and most important, and some of the most frivolous professions — churchmen, lawyers, physicians, men of letters of all kinds ; players, buffoons, musicians, opera-singers, opera-dancers, &c.
第 89 頁 - If you forgive me, I rejoice ; if you are angry, I can bear it : the die is cast ; the book is written ; to be read either now or by posterity. I care not which. It may well wait a century for a reader, since God has waited six thousand years for an observer like myself.
