366. oldal - Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, first and last, are they not written in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and in the visions of Iddo the seer against Jeroboam the son of Nebat ? 30 And Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years.
278. oldal - ... all those bodies which compose the mighty frame of the world, have not any subsistence without a mind — that their being is to be perceived or known; that consequently so long as they are not actually perceived by me, or do not exist in my mind or that of any other created spirit, they must either have no existence at all, or else subsist in the mind of some Eternal Spirit...
366. oldal - And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five. And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall: he spake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes.

9. oldal - STEENIE : — I have received your letter by Die Graeme ; this is my answer : I command you to send all the French away to-morrow out of the town, if you can by fair means (but stick not long in disputing), otherwise force them away, driving them away like so many wild beasts until you have shipped them, and so the devil go with them. Let me have no answer, but of the performance of my command.
100. oldal - In the prosecution of this design, Dr. Beattie has treated his subject in the following manner: He first endeavours to trace the several kinds of evidence and reasoning up to their first principles ; with a view to ascertain the standard of truth, and explain its immutability. He shows, in the second place, that his sentiments on this head, how inconsistent soever with the genius of scepticism, and with the principles and practice of sceptical writers", are yet perfectly consistent with the genius...
91. oldal - ... from whence, by frequent short dives, he silently makes his approaches, and so arranges his distance that at the last dive he comes to the spot where the seal is lying. If the poor animal attempts to escape by rolling into the water, he falls into the paws of the bear ; if, on the contrary, he lies still, his destroyer makes a powerful spring, kills him on the ice, and devours him at leisure.
176. oldal - Maestricht, which, together, with a radius of territory, extending 1200 toises from the outer glacis of the fortress on the said bank of this river, shall continue to be possessed in full sovereignty and property by His Majesty the King of the Netherlands.
