Pagina 197 - Vous vous fiez à l'ordre actuel de la société, sans songer que cet ordre est sujet à des révolutions inévitables , et qu'il vous est impossible de prévoir ni de prévenir celle qui peut regarder vos enfants.

Pagina 253 - Ces dômes où les nids s'étaient multipliés; Et les brutes des bois sortant de leurs repaires , Et les oiseaux fuyant les cimes séculaires, Contemplaient la ruine avec un œil d'horreur, Ne comprenaient pas l'œuvre, et maudissaient du cœur . Cette race stupide acharnée à sa perte , Qui détruit jusqu'au ciel l'ombre qui l'a couverte. Or, pendant qu'en leur nuit les brutes des forêts Avaient pitié de l'homme et séchaient de regrets, L'homme , continuant son ravage sublime , Avait jeté...
