Page 34 - Think'st thou there is no tyranny but that Of blood and chains ? The despotism of vice — The weakness and the wickedness of luxury — The negligence — the apathy — the evils Of sensual sloth — produce ten thousand tyrants, Whose delegated cruelty surpasses The worst acts of one energetic master, However harsh and hard in his own bearing.
Page 501 - The dragon looked on them ; the dragon beguiled the woman and Tha-nai. How is this said to have happened ? The great dragon succeeded in deceiving — deceiving unto death. How do they say it was done? A yellow fruit took the great dragon, and gave to the children of God. A white fruit took the great dragon, and gave to the daughter and son of God. They transgressed the commands of God, and God turned his face from them. They transgressed the commands of God, and God turned away from them.
