עמוד 264 - Away with the godless !" But when the pro-consul urged him further, " Swear, curse Christ, and I release thee." " Six and eighty years," the old man replied, " have I served him, and he has done me nothing but good ; and how could I curse him, my Lord" and Saviour ?" The pro-consul still persisted to urge him.
עמוד 111 - When one cultivates to the utmost the principles of his nature, and exercises them on the principle of reciprocity, he is not far from the path. What you do not like, when done to yourself, do not do to others.
עמוד 166 - neath thunder and scourging Of wild winds unbound! Let the blast of the firmament whirl from its place The earth rooted below, And the brine of the ocean, in rapid emotion, Be driven in the face Of the stars up in heaven, as they walk to and fro!
עמוד 78 - The son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre, skilful to work in gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in timber, in purple, in blue, and in fine linen, and in crimson; also to grave any manner of graving, and to find out every device which shall be put to him, with thy cunning men, and with the cunning men of my lord David thy father.

I have written it upon tablets, I have signed it, I have placed it in my palace for the instruction of my subjects.
עמוד 112 - I had been born beyond the seas, in some remote part of the earth, where the people — far removed from the converting maxims of the ancient kings, and ignorant of the domestic relations — are clothed with the leaves of plants, eat wood, dwell in the wilderness, and live in the holes of the earth.
עמוד 4 - The numerous cross-references, the abundant dates in parenthesis, the pronunciation of the names in the Index, the choice reading references at the close of each general subject, and the novel Historical Recreations in the Appendix, will be of service to teacher and pupil alike.
עמוד 175 - This was the trial and condemnation to death by the Athenians of their fellow-citizen Socrates, the greatest moral teacher of pagan antiquity.

The penalty is death.
