עמוד 153 - Thou art my confidence;" 25 if I rejoiced because my wealth was great, and because mine hand had gotten much; 28 if I beheld the sun when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness; "and my heart hath been secretly enticed, or my mouth hath kissed my hand: 28 this also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge; chapter 31: 28 57 for I should have denied the God that is above.
עמוד 103 - Crisostomo thanked the Commission in the name of the province of Bulacan for what they had done. He said that while the province of Bulacan was the first to take up arms and the last to lay them down, yet when an idea gets into the head of a man of Bulacan it is hard to get rid of it, and they were now for peace. He said that as a demonstration of the good faith of the province he would undertake, on the part of the people, that they would apply the land tax at once, and not wait until next year.
עמוד 209 - Disappointed in his search after the philosopher's stone, and in his longings for dominion over the powers of the air, Gilles de Retz sought in marriage a means of replenishing his coffers. The dowry of his wife was soon exhausted — or her charms palled upon his senses — and she disappeared. A second supplied her place — a third — even to the seventh wife ! The cry of blood at length rose to heaven ; and Jean V, duke of Brittany, determined to arrest this gigantic criminal.
עמוד 129 - With loving words and lingering caresses, which seemed to say Pnrting is such sweet sorrow That I could say good night till it be morrow...
עמוד 253 - Plena doits, odiosa polis, sine lumine solis, In tenebris vacat illecebris, gaudetque latebris Desidiam putat, egregiam spernitque sophiam, Jus atrum vocat omne patrum, meritura barathrum.
עמוד 203 - ... property at the age of twenty, and, by the most prodigal and absurd extravagance, dissipated nearly the whole of it. Among other traits of his profuse expenditure, the establishment of his chapel has been recorded. It was composed of a " bishop," as he insisted upon calling his principal chaplain, a dean, a chanter, two archdeacons, four vicars, a schoolmaster, twelve chaplains, and eight choristers. All these followed in his suite wherever he travelled. Each one of them had his horse and his...
עמוד 205 - ... had been able to overstep the bounds of the known world, and to tear away the veil which separates finite beings from forms of incorporeal air; and that the spirits subjected to their power, were compelled to minister to their smallest wishes. On the instant, his emissaries set out to traverse Italy and Germany, to penetrate into distant solitudes, and the depths of primeval forests, and to sound'the gloomy caverns, where report had placed the servants of the Prince of darkness.
עמוד 13 - Quoi! toujours mont et jamais plaine! Faites-nous avoir triple haleine, Jambes de fer, naturel fort, Ou nous donnez une campagne Qui n'ait plus ni mont ni montagne. — Oh! oh! leur repartit le Sort, Vous faites les mutins, et dans toutes les Gaules Je ne vois que vous seuls qui des monts vous plaigniez. Puisqu'ils vous nuisent à vos pieds, Vous les aurez sur vos épaules.
