Страница 42 - Lacedaemonians came up, having been impeded by steep and broken ground. On seeing the Greeks prevailing, the Samians, though unarmed, did what they could in their favour ; and the other lonians followed their example, and sided with the Greeks. The Milesians, who had been sent to guard the passes by the Persians, turned against them and slaughtered the fugitives. All Ionia now revolted. The fleet proceeded to Samos, where a consultation was held on the fate of that country. It could not protect itself...
Страница 166 - Therefore I make a decree, ^That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill : because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.
Страница 166 - And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD...
Страница 152 - ... approving reporter, a disposition very different from that of Aristotle, whose vast and varied erudition and wonderful subtlety and acuteness were joined with a somewhat dogmatical temper, and a strong desire to give to his treatment of every subject an air of scientific completeness.

Страница 91 - it is time to depart ; I to die ; you to live: but which for the greater good, God only knows." It was usual at Athens for execution very soon to follow condemnation, commonly on the morrow. But it happened that the condemnation of Socrates took place on the eve of the day appointed for the sacred ceremony of crowning the galley, which carried the annual offerings...
Страница 165 - These barbarians were sprung from that vast portion of the European continent, which extends from the Rhine to the Pyrenees, and from the Alps to the ocean, and comprises France and the Netherlands. They were a turbulent and warlike race, little skilled in the arts \vhich minister to human subsistence.
Страница 23 - He was twice expelled, and twice returned : at last he died at an advanced age, in the administration of Athens, having exercised it with great ability, and, in all his struggles, with unusual liberality and moderation towards his opposers. He encouraged learning and the arts ; he is said to have founded the first public library known to the world, and first collected and digested the poems of Homer, which had been brought by Lycurgus into Greece, from the Grecian colonies in Asia where they had...
Страница 91 - Plato, the greater of them by far, possessed a mind almost unrivalled for its completeness at all points ; and uniting the greatest acuteness, vigour, and comprehension of understanding, with a most glowing and poetical imagination, and matchless dignity, power, and beauty of style. But his genius was too original and peculiar to fit him for the mere reporter of another's opinions, and much of what he has written under the name of Socrates, must be considered as his own. The bias of his mind was...
Страница 40 - Asiatics and about 50,000 Greeks. The first attack was made by the Persian cavalry, who continually riding up in small parties, discharged their arrows and retired, annoying the Greeks without any retaliation. The Megarians being placed in the most exposed part of the line, sent to Pausanias to say that they could no longer maintain their ground, and a picked band of 300 Athenians volunteered to relieve them. They took with them some archers, a service which the Athenians cultivated with an attention...
