These hoards of truth you can unlock at will...
Sayfa 174 - Those orators who give us much noise and many words, but little argument and less wit, and who are most loud when they are the least lucid, should take a lesson from the great volume of Nature ; she often gives us the lightning even without the thunder, but never the thunder without the lightning.
Sayfa 74 - Thus considered, what a strange chaos is this wide atmosphere we breathe ! Every atom impressed with good and with ill retains at once the motions which philosophers and sages have imparted to it, mixed and combined in ten thousand ways with all that is worthless and base.
