Miss Havisham's intentions towards me, all a mere dream; Estella not designed for me; I only suffered in Satis House as a convenience, a sting for the greedy relations, a model with a mechanical heart to practise on when no other practice was at hand; those were the first smarts I had.

There is a bow-window fronting the sea. Dr. Johnson repeated the ode, Jam satis terris , while Mr. Boyd was with his patients. He spoke well in favour of entails , to preserve lines of men whom mankind are accustomed to reverence.

M. Bayle raises the further objection, that it is true that our legislators can never invent regulations such as are convenient for all individuals, 'Nulla lex satis commoda omnibus est; id modo quaeritur, si majori parti et in summam prodest. Nothing of all that can apply to God, who is as infinite in power and understanding as in goodness and true greatness.

Tunetanum regnum veterem Africam minorem ferme totam occupat. Caput est Tunetum, sive Tunisa, vulgo Tunisi; insignis, vetus ac satis ampla urbs, quae ex Carthaginis ruinis crevit; emporium Venetis et Genuensibus aliisque mercatoribus celebre. Secunda est Tripolis nova, quae Tripolis Barbariae dicitur, ad differentiam Tripolis Syriae: emporium est Europais mercatoribus celeberrimum.

We went down on the next day but one, and we found her in the room where I had first beheld her, and it is needless to add that there was no change in Satis House. She was even more dreadfully fond of Estella than she had been when I last saw them together; I repeat the word advisedly, for there was something positively dreadful in the energy of her looks and embraces.

In cases of this kind, parva seges satis est, and Amelia has long since outlived both rival malice and contemporary coldness. It is a proof of her author's genius, that she is even more intelligible to our age than she was to her own.

ADMIRARI SATIS NON POSSUM: a favorite form of expression with Cicero; e.g. De Or. 1, 165. DISCIPLINAM: 'morals'; literally 'teaching'. CURIO: Plutarch, Cat. 2, says the ambassadors found him cooking a dinner of herbs, and that Curius sent them away with the remark that a man who dined in that way had no need of gold.

He took a genuine pleasure in his own jokes. Some men do. One day I dropped a pot of marmalade on a new carpet, and should certainly have been reprimanded for carelessness, had it not occurred to him to exclaim: 'JAM SATIS TERRIS! and then laugh immoderately at his wit. That there are as good fish in the sea as ever came out of it, was a maxim he acted upon, if he never heard it.

Herbert took me into his business, and I became a clerk, and afterwards went abroad to take charge of the eastern branch, and when many a year had gone round, became a partner. It was eleven years later when I was down in the marshes again. I had been to see Joe Gargery, who was as friendly as ever, and had strolled on to where Satis House once stood.

Have you any vinum gallicum rubrum?" "Yes." "Well, then, give us some! Bring it here, damn it!" "How much do you want?" "Quantum satis. . . . Give us an ounce each in the water, and afterwards we'll see. . . . Obtyosov, what do you say? First with water and afterwards per se. . . ." The doctor and Obtyosov sat down to the counter, took off their caps, and began drinking the wine.
