Page 92 - Yet all this availeth me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king's gate.
Page 102 - All the performances of human art, at which we look with praise or wonder, are instances of the resistless force of perseverance; it is by this that the quarry becomes a pyramid, and that distant countries are united with canals.
