Seite xv - God of thy father, who shall help thee ; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts and of the womb : the blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills : they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
Seite ccxxxiii - And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword ; and they escaped into the land of Armenia : and Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.
Seite xv - The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills; they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
Seite 182 - Greece and India are indeed the two opposite poles in the historical development of the Aryan man. To the Greek, existence is full of life and reality ; to the Hindu, it is a dream and illusion.
Seite ccxxxiii - And the LORD hath given a commandment concerning thee, that no more of thy name be sown: out of the house of thy gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image : I will make thy grave ; for thou art vile.

Seite lxviii - Now therefore it would seem to follow, that both he who knows this (the true meaning of the syllable Om), and he who does not, perform the same sacrifice 2.
Seite ccxxxiii - Abydenus differs materially from all of these. He says " next in order after him (Sennacherib) reigned Nergilus, who was assassinated by his son Adramelus ; and he also was slain by Axerdes, his brother by the same father but of a different mother, who pursued his army and shut it up in the city of the Byzantines. Axerdes was the first that levied mercenary soldiers, one of whom was Pythagoras, a follower of the wisdom of the Chaldeans ; he also reduced under his dominion Egypt.
Seite xvii - ... protect him against Satan as the presumed cause ; or be it, as with the Christian, the occasion of a " God bless you " from bystanders ; or be it the ground for putting faith in an utterance as inspired ; the implication, which alone here concerns us, is that involuntary actions of these kinds are regarded as showing that some intruder has made the body do what its owner did not intend it to do.
Seite 189 - Mohammedan outburst referred to above (' sweet it is to die in battle ; the path to heaven lies in fighting,' viii. 93. 55 ff.) is the last desperate call of a great chief seeking to rally his frightened troops. But the call has absolutely no effect ; it does not stimulate the churls behind him to love of glory at the expense of life. They run away. As we shall presently see, this is no exception to the general order of events. The true warrior by caste is really indoctrinated with these sentiments...
