Pàgina 8 - The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either, yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and in the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong indeed, that no philologer could examine them all...
Pàgina 16 - O friend to virtue ! that supreme Spirit, which thou believest one and the same with thyself, resides in thy bosom perpetually, and is an all-knowing inspector of thy goodness or of thy wickedness.
Pàgina 16 - Naked and shorn, tormented with hunger and thirst, and deprived of sight, shall the man who gives false evidence, go with a potsherd to beg food at the door of his enemy.
Pàgina 15 - LET a man continually take pleasure in truth, in justice, in laudable practices, and in purity; let him chastise those, whom he may chastise, in a legal mode ; let him keep in subjection his speech, his arm, and his appetite : 176.

Pàgina 16 - ... 81. A witness, who gives testimony with truth, shall attain exalted seats of beatitude above, and the highest fame here below : such testimony is revered by BRAHMA' himself; 82. The witness who speaks falsely, shall be fast bound under water, in the snaky cords of VARUNA, and be wholly deprived of power to escape torment during a hundred transmigrations : let mankind, therefore, give no false testimony.
