Strona 6 - A dungeon horrible on all sides round As one great furnace flamed; yet from those flames No light; but rather darkness visible Served only to discover sights of woe, Regions of sorrow, doleful shades, where peace And rest can never dwell, hope never comes That comes to all; but torture without end Still urges, and a fiery deluge, fed With ever-burning sulphur unconsumed.
Strona 8 - Christ, knowing that the servant of the Lord must not strive but be gentle to all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves * He must be grave without moroseness, cheerful without levity.
Strona 22 - Thus far shalt thou go and no further', and we have never attempted to fix the ne plus ultra to the progress of Ireland's nationhood, and we never shall.
Strona 13 - ... arrangements. But we may perhaps take courage from history to hope that generations will come, to whom our system of distributing among a few the privileges and delights that are procured by the toil of the many, will seem just as wasteful, as morally hideous, and as scientifically indefensible, as that older system which impoverished and depopulated empires, in order that a despot or a caste might have no least wish ungratified, for which the lives or the hard-won treasure of others could suffice.
Strona 7 - Agnostic is one who holds that the existence of anything beyond and behind natural phenomena is unknown, and (so far as can be judged) unknowable, and especially that a First Cause and an unseen world are subjects of which we know nothing.

The veil of the temple was rent, and the false mockeries of the shrine of the Hebrew divinity made plain to scornful eyes. People...
Strona 7 - Sur le sein maternel écrasés et sanglants? Lisbonne, qui n'est plus, eut-elle plus de vices Que Londres, que Paris, plongés dans les délices? Lisbonne est abîmée, et l'on danse à Paris.
Strona 7 - ... the chain. We are too proud to admit a gorilla or a chimpanzee to a future world, and yet, if they are only lower forms of humanity, we do not quite see our way to exclude them. The difficulty in one shape or another has long been felt. "Nobody thinks...
Strona 7 - Que ces objets sont beaux ! Que notre âme épurée Vole à ces vérités dont elle est éclairée ! Oui, dans le sein de Dieu, loin de ce corps mortel, L'esprit semble écouter la voix de l'Éternel.
Strona 9 - The history of the churches is in one of its most conspicuous aspects the history of a prolonged outrage upon these words by arrogant and blasphemous persons, pretending to draw a sacred spirit from the very saint who uttered them. We may well deplore that Voltaire's attack, and every other attack of the same sort, did not take the fair shape prescribed by the apostle to the servant of the Lord, of gentleness, patience, and the instruction of a sweet and firm example. But the partisans of the creed...
