47 페이지 - A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
92 페이지 - I was so struck with admiration, that I could not for some time speak to her, being wholly taken up in gazing. That surprising harmony of features ! that charming result of the whole ! that exact proportion of body ! that lovely bloom of complexion, unsullied by art! the unutterable enchantment of her smile ! — But her eyes ! — large and black, with all the soft languishment of the blue ! every turn of her face discovering some new grace.
88 페이지 - ... their fancies ; some putting flowers, others a plume of heron's feathers, and, in short, what they please; but the most general fashion is a large bouquet of jewels, made like natural flowers; that is, the buds, of pearl; the roses, of different coloured rubies; the jessamines, of diamonds; the jonquils, of topazes, etc., so well set and enamelled, 'tis hard to imagine any thing of that kind so beautiful. The hair hangs at its full length behind, divided into tresses braided with pearl or ribbon,...

96 페이지 - ... knowledge you have of my heart. I don't expect from you the insipid railleries I should suffer from another in answer to this letter. You know how to divide the idea of pleasure from that of vice, and they are only mingled in the heads of fools. But I allow you to laugh at me for the sensual declaration in saying, that I had rather be a rich effendi, with all his ignorance, than sir Isaac Newton with all his knowledge.
87 페이지 - The first part of my dress is a pair of drawers, very full, that reach to my shoes, and conceal the legs more modestly than your petticoats.
36 페이지 - Those observed by Dr Shaw appeared to be so many cylinders of water falling down from the clouds ; though by the reflection, it might be, of these descending columns, or from the actual dropping of the fluid contained in them, they would sometimes, says he, appear at a distance to be sucked up from the sea.
47 페이지 - ... like combustible matter, which were severally set on fire upon the approach of the locusts. But this was all to no purpose ; for the trenches were quickly filled up, and the fires extinguished -by infinite swarms succeeding one another ; whilst the front was regardless of danger, and the rear pressed on so close, that a retreat was altogether impossible.
284 페이지 - I saw from the SE a haze come in colour like the purple part of a rainbow, but not so compressed or thick; it did not occupy twenty yards in breadth, and was about twelve feet high from the ground. It was a kind of...
