Sivu 1 - Don't be so severe a critic : Are there not a thousand plays that pass with great success and applause, though they have many greater absurdities, and nonsense in abundance ? On, boy, on, let there be as many impertinences as moats in the sun ; no matter, so I get the money.
Sivu 184 - Swede crept him under the tree that lay uprooted by the storm ; but the Finn remained without, as before, nor did he shrink beneath the strength of the gale. Then Wainamoinen, the mighty, looked forth out of the clouds upon the tree that sheltered the Swede ; and it rose slowly, and the boards and the beams fell into their places, and lo ! it became a lofty house, such as those in which the Swedes dwell to this day. And the Finn looked upon its walls and its roofs, and saw how they stood firmly against...
Sivu 295 - If I be hungry, I will not tell thee : for the whole world is mine, and all that is therein. 13 Thinkest thou that I will eat bulls...

Sivu 184 - Brother,' said the Swede to the Finn, 'fierce and terrible is the tempest; who may withstand its might ? There is shelter beneath the great oak trunk yonder ; let us seek it while there is yet time.' So the Swede crept him under the tree that lay uprooted by the storm ; but the Finn remained without as before, nor did he shrink beneath the strength of the gale.
