Page 241 - And, rapt thro' many a rosy change, The twilight died into the dark. "A hundred summers! can it be? And whither goest thou, tell me where? " "O seek my father's court with me, For there are greater wonders there."

Page 324 - En voyant l'aveuglement et la misère de l'homme, en regardant tout l'univers muet, et l'homme sans lumière, abandonné à luimême, et comme égaré dans ce recoin de l'univers, sans savoir qui l'ya mis, ce qu'il y est venu faire, ce qu'il deviendra en mourant...

You are at liberty to take that course if you choose, though I give you fair warning that it will lead you far. But now I must ask you still another question.
