עמוד 60 - at all points of the circle described by man's intelligence, the Chinese mind seems occasionally to have caught glimpses of a heaven far beyond the range of its ordinary ken and vision?'1 Well — we have examined the model summary of history from the stylus of the sage, and it testifies to three characteristics of his mind which it is painful to have thus distinctly to point out. First, ho had no reverence for truth in history, — I may say no reverence for truth, without any modification.
עמוד 305 - ... the preparations to be made in reference to them, so that the people might know the sprites and evil things. Thus the people, when they went among the rivers, marshes, hills, and forests, did not meet with the injurious things, and the hill-sprites, monstrous things, and water-sprites, did not meet with them (to do them injury).
עמוד 305 - ... its reverse, to darkness and disorder, though they were large, they would be light. Heaven blesses intelligent virtue;— on that its favour rests. King Ch'ing fixed the tripods in Keah-juh, and divined that the dynasty should extend through 30 reigns, over 700 years.
עמוד 211 - In five years there was one tour of inspection, and there were four appearances of the princes at court. They gave a report (of their government) in words, which was clearly tested by their works. They received chariots and robes according to their merits. He instituted the division (of the land) into twelve provinces', raising altars upon twelve hills in them.* He (also) deepened the rivers.
עמוד 309 - A male child was thrown away by his mother's orders in the marsh of Mung: there a tigress suckled him. This was witnessed by the Viscount of Yun, whilst hunting, and when he returned home in terror, his wife (whose son the child was) told him the whole affair, on which he sent for the child and had it cared for.
עמוד 13 - ... deed of atrocity fitted to awaken our disgust, it can hardly be said that there is anything in the language to convey to us the shadow of an idea of the author's feeling about it. The notices, for we cannot call them narratives, are absolutely unimpassioned. A base murder and a shining act of heroism are chronicled just as the eclipses of the sun are chronicled. So and so took place; — that is all. No details are given; no judgment is expressed.
עמוד 38 - CWun-ts'ew, but so fully developed, and so much superior to the latter, that it has been said, "In no ancient history of any country have we such a vivid picture of any lengthened period of its annals, as we have from Tso of the 270 years he has embraced in this work.
עמוד 305 - Hea was distinguished for its virtue, the distant regions sent pictures of the (remarkable) objects in them. The nine pastors sent in the metal of their provinces, and the tripods were cast, with representations on them of those objects. All the objects were represented, and (instructions were given) of the preparations to be made in reference to them, so that the people might know the sprites and evil things. Thus the people, when they went among the rivers, marshes, hills, and forests, did not...
עמוד 13 - Instead of a history of events, woven artistically together, we find a congeries of the briefest possible intimations of matter in which the court and State of Lu were more or less concerned extending over 242 years, without the slightest tincture of literary ability in the composition, or the slightest indication of judicial opinion on the part of the writer.
עמוד 13 - In the ninth month, [the duke] and an officer of Sung made a covenant in Suh.
