1 They went up to Candide and very civilly invited him to dinner.
2 Candide, all stupefied, could not yet very well realise how he was a hero.
3 An able surgeon cured Candide in three weeks by means of emollients taught by Dioscorides.
4 Candide, who trembled like a philosopher, hid himself as well as he could during this heroic butchery.
5 He combined a true judgment with simplicity of spirit, which was the reason, I apprehend, of his being called Candide.
6 Candide fled quickly to another village; it belonged to the Bulgarians; and the Abarian heroes had treated it in the same way.
7 The Preceptor Pangloss was the oracle of the family, and little Candide heard his lessons with all the good faith of his age and character.
8 As they were going to proceed to a third whipping, Candide, able to bear no more, begged as a favour that they would be so good as to shoot him.
9 At length, while the two kings were causing Te Deum to be sung each in his own camp, Candide resolved to go and reason elsewhere on effects and causes.
10 Candide listened attentively and believed innocently; for he thought Miss Cunegonde extremely beautiful, though he never had the courage to tell her so.
11 She met Candide on reaching the castle and blushed; Candide blushed also; she wished him good morrow in a faltering tone, and Candide spoke to her without knowing what he said.
