Page 1 - How many things are there which a man cannot, with any face or comeliness, say or do himself! A man can scarce allege his own merits with modesty, much less extol them ; a man cannot sometimes brook to supplicate or beg; and a number of the like. But all these things are graceful in a friend's mouth, which are blushing in a man's own.
Page 1 - Men have their time, and die many times in desire of some things which they principally take to heart; the bestowing of a child, the finishing of a work, or the like. If a man have a true friend, he may rest almost secure that the care of those things will continue after him.
Page 3 - If the multiple of the first be less than that of the second, the multiple of the third is also less than that of the fourth...
Page 6 - Similar triangles are to one another in the duplicate ratio of their homologous sides.
Page 1 - ... subtending the obtuse angle, is greater than the squares of the sides containing the obtuse angle, by twice the rectangle contained by the side upon which, when produced, the perpendicular falls, and the straight line intercepted without the triangle between the perpendicular and the obtuse angle. Let ABC be an obtuse-angled triangle, having the obtuse angle ACB, and from the point A let AD be drawn perpendicular to BC produced.
Page 3 - Next, it is evident, that what had its being and beginning from another, must also have all that which is in, and belongs to its being, from another too. All the powers it has must be owing to, and received from, the same source. This eternal source then of all being must also be the source and original of all power; and so this eternal being must be also the most powerful.
Page 1 - If a straight line be divided into any two parts, four times the rectangle contained ~by the whole line and one of the parts, together with the square on the other part, is equal to the square on the straight line which is made up of the whole and that part.
Page 3 - A greater magnitude is said to be a multiple of a less, when the greater is measured by the less ; that is, ' when the greater contains the less a certain number of times exactly.' 3. ' Ratio is a mutual relation of two magnitudes of the same kind to one another, in respect of quantity.
