Pàgina 117 - Je me couchai voluptueusement sur la tablette d'une espèce de niche ou de fausse porte enfoncée dans un mur de terrasse ; le ciel de mon lit était formé par les têtes des arbres; un rossignol était précisément au-dessus de moi: je m'endormis à son chant; mon sommeil fut doux, mon réveil le fut davantage.
Pàgina 117 - Je me souviens même d'avoir passé une nuit délicieuse hors de la ville, dans un chemin qui côtoyait le Rhône ou la Saône, car je ne me rappelle pas lequel des deux. Des jardins élevés en terrasse bordaient le chemin du côté opposé. Il avait fait très chaud ce jour-là, la soirée était charmante; la rosée humectait l'herbe flétrie; point de vent, une nuit tranquille; l'air était frais, sans être froid; le soleil, après son coucher, avait laissé dans le ciel des vapeurs rouges dont...

Pàgina 108 - God toward yourselves, because you do not comprehend how you have deserved it more than others ; you may know nothing of the entrance of sin and death into the world by one man's transgression ; nor be able to comprehend the doctrine of the cross, and of redemption by Jesus Christ : in short if your mind is so disposed, you may find food for your scepticism in every page of the Bible, as well as in every appearance of nature ; and it is not in the power of any person, but yourselves, to clear up...
Pàgina 111 - When the detachments closed in upon their prey, and every moment gave birth to some new prodigy of valour, or laid a whole line of the Malay soldiers prostrate on the muddy stream, like so many nine-pins, I verily believe that if none of his own people had been present, the admiral would have seized a pike himself, and jumped into the thickest of the fight, boots, sword, cocked hat, and all...
Pàgina 111 - ... other exhausted, one confident, the other broken in spirit, it is quite possible that the crocodiles might have worsted the pirates, as the Malays are called in every other part of the world but the East, where they are generally admitted to be as good a set of people as any of their neighbours. It is needless to say, that while all this was going on, our gallant Admiral, Sir Samuel Hood, was a pretty busy spectator.
