Seite 379 - My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: for length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
Seite 367 - Bowling is good for the stone and reins ; shooting for the lungs and breast; gentle walking for the stomach ; riding for the head ; and the like.

Seite 384 - It is probable that, among the hundred and twenty thousand soldiers who were marshalled round Neerwinden under all the standards of Western Europe, the two feeblest in body were the hunchbacked dwarf who urged forward the fiery onset of France, and the asthmatic skeleton who covered the slow retreat of England.
