Page 461 - I beg leave to deny. Woman's qualities may be less conspicuous, but they are quite as influential. Man has to bear outward, tangible rule; and his faculties are necessarily of an authoritative, evident, external commanding order. Woman has to bear invisible sway over the hidden mechanism of the heart; and her endowments are of a meek, persuasive, quiet, and subjective kind. Man rules the mind of the world; woman its...

Deficiente igitur pane et potu, fratrem seniorem adivit, subsidium ab eo requirens ; qui respondit se sibi nihil penitus daturum, nisi emeret. Contestante autem juniori se nihil habere, respondit senior, •• Immo," inquit, " carnem tuam habes, vende mihi ad.
Page 178 - ... troubadour a aimé la demoiselle alors qu'elle était encore dans sa plus tendre enfance; dès qu'elle a été plus avancée en âge, il a déclaré son amour, et elle a promis de lui accorder un baiser, quand il viendrait la voir. Cependant elle refuse d'exécuter cette promesse , sous le prétexte qu'à l'âge où elle l'a faite, elle en ignorait la conséquence.
