Side 122 - Whatever form is algebraically equivalent to another when expressed in general symbols, must continue to be equivalent whatever those symbols denote.
Side 17 - It is certain that from its completeness, uniformity and faultlessness, from its arrangement and progressive character, and from the universal adoption of the completest and best line of argument, Euclid's " Elements " stand preeminently at the head of all human productions.
