Page 327 - For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts ; even one thing befalleth them : as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath ; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast : for all is vanity. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
Page 340 - Nous connaissons la vérité non seulement par la raison, mais encore par le cœur. C'est de cette dernière sorte que nous connaissons les premiers principes, et c'est en vain que le raisonnement, qui n'ya point de part, essaye de les combattre.
