Strona 145 - The Kings of Sardinia and Naples, the Pope, and the Duke of Parma, are separated from the coalition. You have expelled the English from Leghorn, Genoa, and Corsica. Still higher destinies await you. You will prove yourselves worthy of them. Of all the foes who combined to stifle our republic in its birth, the emperor alone remains.
Strona 49 - T am come to lead you into the most fertile plains that the sun beholds. — Rich provinces, opulent towns, all shall be at your disposal. — Soldiers, with such a prospect before you, can you fail in courage and constancy...
Strona 127 - They jest with danger, and laugh at death ; and if any thing can equal their intrepidity, it is the gaiety with which, singing alternately songs of love and patriotism, they accomplish the most severe forced marches.

Strona 223 - They were escorted to the sand-hills to the south-east of Jaffa, divided there into small bodies, and put to death by musketry. The execution lasted a considerable time, and the wounded, as in the fusillades of the Revolution, were despatched with the bayonet.

Strona 207 - have no idea of children's play : they either kill or are killed. The Bedouins are an invincible people, inhabiting a burning desert, mounted on the fleetest horses in the world, and full of courage. — They live, with their wives and children, in flying camps, which are never pitched two nights together in the same place. They are horrible savages, and yet they have some notion of gold ! A small quantity of it serves to excite their admiration.
Strona 215 - ... every thing. Mankind appear colder and more selfish than they really are. In this situation we feel that, if nothing obliged us to live, it would be much best to die ; but when, after this first thought, we press our children to our hearts, tears and tender...
