Unde fames homini vetitorum tanta ciborum,
Audetis vesci, genus ô mortale? quod oro,
Ne facite; et monitis animos advertite nostris. ..

Je 'ai pas la témérité de prétendre former le genre humain,' mais assez de courage pour dire la vérité, fans me soucier des criailleries de ceux qui la redoutent, parce qu'ils ont intérét de tromper notre cspèce, ou de la laisser dans des erreurs dont ils font eue-mêmes les dupes."

Diderot, Code de la Nature.

“ It is an unpopular attempt to attack prejudiceës estab.ish'd by time and habit, and secure'd by the corruptions of luxurious life. It is equally unpleasant to attempt the reformation of abuseës, without the least prospect of success: yet there is a secret pleasure in pleading the cause of humanity and helpless innocence.”

Doctor Gregory's Comparative view.

72-112.
