Pagina 161 - Denn eben wo Begriffe fehlen, Da stellt ein Wort zur rechten Zeit sich ein.
Pagina 124 - ... tis where the ice appears.

Pagina 23 - So soon as that spare Cassius. He reads much ; He is a great observer, and he looks Quite through the deeds of men. He loves no plays, As thou dost, Antony : he hears no music : Seldom he smiles ; and smiles in such a sort, As if he mocked himself, and scorned his spirit That could be moved to smile at any thing.
