1 You answer me like a young man from Westphalia.
2 The Father-General needed new levies of young German-Jesuits.
3 The young man approaches, he raises the veil with a timid hand.
4 The young man wanted to bathe, and I took this opportunity of bathing also.
5 I did not know that it was a capital crime for a Christian to be found naked with a young Mussulman.
6 I had not been eight days in this employment when one evening I met with a young Ichoglan, who was a very handsome fellow.
7 I need not tell you how great a hardship it was for a young princess and her mother to be made slaves and carried to Morocco.
8 One day I took it into my head to step into a mosque, where I saw an old Iman and a very pretty young devotee who was saying her paternosters.
9 While they were disputing on this important subject and waiting for Cunegonde, Candide saw a young Theatin friar in St. Mark's Piazza, holding a girl on his arm.
10 The lady having perceived two enormous diamonds upon the hands of the young foreigner praised them with such good faith that from Candide's fingers they passed to her own.
11 He was a very handsome young man, with a full face, white skin but high in colour; he had an arched eyebrow, a lively eye, red ears, vermilion lips, a bold air, but such a boldness as neither belonged to a Spaniard nor a Jesuit.
12 Candide, driven from terrestrial paradise, walked a long while without knowing where, weeping, raising his eyes to heaven, turning them often towards the most magnificent of castles which imprisoned the purest of noble young ladies.

17 As Miss Cunegonde had a great disposition for the sciences, she breathlessly observed the repeated experiments of which she was a witness; she clearly perceived the force of the Doctor's reasons, the effects, and the causes; she turned back greatly flurried, quite pensive, and filled with the desire to be learned; dreaming that she might well be a sufficient reason for young Candide, and he for her.
