Done nothing so long as aught remained to do
Eat their own children than to forego one high mass

History is a continuous whole of which we see only fragments

Idle, listless, dice-playing, begging, filching vagabonds
Ignorance is the real enslaver of mankind
Imagining that they held the world’s destiny in their hands
Imposed upon the multitudes, with whom words were things

In times of civil war, to be neutral is to be nothing
Inevitable fate of talking castles and listening ladies
Infinite capacity for pecuniary absorption
Inhabited by the savage tribes called Samoyedes

Intelligence, science, and industry were accounted degrading
Invaluable gift which no human being can acquire, authority
