This story seems to have been popularized by S. Venetsky in an unsourced article which first appeared in July 1969 in the Russian journal Metallurgist. The article was reprinted in Tales about Metals (1981). Unfortunately, in neither case does the author cite a source. According to Venetsky, Napoleon III loved to show off and one day he gave a banquet at ...

Seems to check out, for a small part at least: With 80 men moved out, with 81 returned home The relief at home was great: "Already in Nendeln the contingent of authorities, relatives and population was celebrated," says Geiger. And the legend is true: The 80 Liechtenstein soldiers came home with one more soldier whom the troop had won as a friend. "...

This is most probably a made up quote. Checking later editions was unfruitful, but Leonardo is so long out of these filthy copyright laws, we might as well look at J.P. Richter: "Leonardo. The Complete Works", 1888; found on Wikipedia: The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci. What is in there that has some semblance to the desired quote? Justice requires ...

According to The Da Vinci Globe (info here) the comment was made during reflection on Leonardo's study of how to accurately render surveyed maps onto a (nearly) spherical surface as a globe.

Text in brackets is compared to better known versions (Svikert 1820) of the text or abbreviations expanded. The "p" in "psuasum" ...

He was of the Celtic Vocontii tribe in Gallia Narbonensis (southern Gaul, roughly modern day Languedoc and Provence). According to this book review in Histos (2018) (pdf), His grandfather apparently acquired ...

On John Buridan's page in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, we have the citation: Buridan, John, 1588 (actually 1518), In Metaphysicen Aristotelis Questiones argutissimae, Paris. Rpr. 1964, as Kommentar zur Aristotelischen Metaphysik, Frankfurt a. M.: Minerva. [QM] which suggests that the 'QM' in your citation is 'In Metaphysicen Aristotelis ...

张作霖只说了一个“打”字,就昏死过去,再也没有醒来……。 "打" could be the verb in a sentence. That means 'make a phone/telegraph to call his fifth son back soon'. Because he was in a lethal condition and could not finish the whole sentence. This matches the following return of Xueliang Zhang disguised as a wound soldier.

http://christianthinktank.com/only1joe.html Here is an excellent source for the extant copies of Josephus' 'Antiquities.' This was fairly easy to find from the Loeb Classics: “I am assuming your discussion is about the mentions of Jesus (at 18 and at 20), so I will give the data for THIS half of JA (since it circulated in two halves in antiquity, due to ...
