Audetis vesci, genus ô mortale? quod oro,
Ne facite; et monitis animos advertite nostris.

Je n'ai pas la témérité de prétendre ri former le genre humain, mais asses de courage pour dire la vérité, fans me soucier des eriailleries de ceux qui la redoutent, parce qu'ils ont intérêt de tromper notre espèce, ou de la laisser dans des erreurs dont ils font eux-mêmes les dupes."

Diderot, Code de la Nature.

" It is an unpopular attempt to attack prejudiceës estab ishd by time and habit, and secured 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 Gregorys Comparative view.
