Pagina 243 - I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country; he is a bird of bad moral character : he does not get his living honestly...
Pagina 462 - And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good : and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
