Page 2 - A STRAIGHT line is perpendicular to a plane, when it is perpendicular to every straight line which it meets in that plane.

Page 7 - If from the foot of a perpendicular to a plane a straight line is drawn at right angles to any line of the plane, and its intersection with that line is joined to any point of the perpendicular, this last line will be perpendicular to the line of the plane. Let AP be perpendicular to the plane MN...
