第 365 頁 - Remember that money is of a prolific generating nature. Money can beget money, and its offspring can beget more, and so on. Five shillings turned is six, turned again it is seven and threepence, and so on, till it becomes an hundred pounds.

He that murders a crown destroys all that it might have produced, even...

第 368 頁 - Be studious in your profession, and you will be learned. Be industrious and frugal, and you will be rich. Be sober and temperate, and you will be healthy. Be in general virtuous, and you will be happy. At least, you will, by such conduct, stand the best chance for such consequences.
第 403 頁 - What are our Poets, take them as they fall — Good, bad, rich, poor, much read, not read at all ? Them and their works in the same class you'll find ; They are the mere Waste-Paper of mankind.
第 216 頁 - It is with extreme concern I have to inform you that the proceedings of the person whom they have unfortunately appointed their minister plenipotentiary here, have breathed nothing of the friendly spirit of the nation which sent him ; their tendency, on the contrary, has been to involve us in war abroad, and discord and anarchy at home.
