第 139 頁 - Of this, at least, I feel assured, that there is no such thing as forgetting possible to the mind ; a thousand accidents may and will interpose a veil between our present consciousness and the secret inscriptions on the mind.

Eines Abends trat die Fürstin Auf ihn zu mit raschen Worten : „Deinen Namen will ich wissen, Deine Heimat, deine Sippschaft!" Und der Sklave sprach: „Ich heiße Mohamet, ich bin aus Jemen, Und mein Stamm sind jene Asra, Welche sterben wenn sie lieben.
第 114 頁 - I need no assurances, I am a man who is pre-occupied of his own soul; I do not doubt that from under the feet and beside the hands and face I am cognizant of, are now looking faces I am not cognizant of, calm and actual faces, I do not doubt but the majesty and beauty of the world are latent in any iota of the world, I do not doubt...

第 142 頁 - But this terrible eclipse lasted only a moment, when life blazed forth again with preternatural clearness. I seemed suddenly to become possessed of a new sense. The other self, bygone experiences, Instinct, or Guardian Angel, — call it what you will, — came forward and assumed control.
第 113 頁 - N rays of light, and of countless other vi- f brations of which our ordinary senses render no account, the phenomena of radium and radiant matter, the marvels of wireless telegraphy, the mysterious facts connected with hypnotism and the subliminal consciousness, and the certainty now that telepathic communication can take place between human beings thousands of miles apart— all these things have convinced us that the subtlest forces and energies, totally unmeasurable by our instruments, and saturated...
