Sivu 329 - Je vis éloigné de la France, Sans besoin et sans abondance, Content d'un vulgaire destin. J'aime la vertu sans rudesse, J'aime le plaisir sans mollesse, J'aime la vie et n'en crains pas la fin.
Sivu 21 - ... observation, all which I carefully recorded. And although we had no lack of careful dissectors, yet we sometimes, when peculiar nicety of experiment was required, employed our own hands. For myself, being short-sighted, it was particularly my study to obtain demonstrations of the fabric of the eye.

Sivu 246 - Mornay, son confident, mais jamais son flatteur ; Trop vertueux soutien du parti de l'erreur ; Qui, signalant toujours son zèle et sa prudence, Servit également son église et la France ; Censeur des courtisans, mais à la cour aimé ; Fier ennemi de Rome, et de Rome estimé.

In this course it is incredible how many new and singular objects, well worthy of remark, came under our observation, all which I carefully recorded. And although we had no lack of careful dissectors,...
Sivu 176 - This appearing incredible to many of the company, I contended not only that it might be done, but that I could do it. As they expressed their astonishment at this assertion, that I might not be suspected of idle boasting, I immediately put it to the proof. I therefore took the fourth part of a common leaf of paper, and on its narrower side wrote a single line in so small a character that it contained twenty verses of the Iliad...
Sivu 142 - Qui ne peut revenir, Tourment de ma pensee, Que n'ai-je en te perdant perdu le souvenir?
Sivu 108 - Italic ; Et sous des noms Remains faisant notre portrait, Peindre Caton galant, et Brutus dameret.
