Sayfa 244 - A world from which solitude is extirpated, is a very poor ideal. Solitude, in the sense of being often alone, is essential to any depth of meditation or of character; and solitude in the presence of natural beauty and grandeur, is the cradle of thoughts and aspirations which are not only good for the individual, but which society could ill do without.
Sayfa 16 - Queen Are confident and gay ; Clouds at her bidding disappear ; Points she to aught ? — the bliss draws near, And Fancy smooths the way. Not such the land of Wishes — there Dwell fruitless day-dreams, lawless prayer, And thoughts with things at strife ; Yet how forlorn, should ye depart, Ye superstitions of the heart, How poor, were human life...
Sayfa 175 - He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
Sayfa 22 - But the misdemeanour of persons pretending to use witchcraft, tell fortunes, or discover stolen goods, by skill in the occult sciences, is still deservedly punished with a year's imprisonment, and standing four times in the pillory.
Sayfa 8 - For as knowledges are now delivered, there is a kind of contract of error between the deliverer and the receiver. For he that delivereth knowledge desireth to deliver it in such form as may be best believed, and not as may be best examined; and he that receiveth knowledge desireth rather present satisfaction than expectant inquiry; and so rather not to doubt, than not to err...
Sayfa 187 - What rational interpretation,' he asks ' (on the hypothesis of a creative plan), can be given to the succession of phases each embryo is forced to pass through ? He will observe that none of these phases have any adaptation to the future state of the animal, but are in positive contradiction to it, or are simply purposeless ; many of them have no adaptation even to its embryonic state.
Sayfa 191 - ... any one who is acquainted with the history of science will admit, that its progress has, in all ages, meant, and now more than ever means, the extension of the province of what we call matter and causation, and' the concomitant gradual banishment from all regions of human thought of what we call spirit and spontaneity.
Sayfa 269 - ... mournful ; it is an evil, a horrible evil. One innocent person who perishes ought a thousand times more to excite the bitter grief of humanity, than whole armies of heroes who know that they are going to death, and who meet it freely for a cause which is just in their eyes, and which is dear to them. In great battles men are not the objects of contention, but causes ; the opposing spirits of an epoch, the different ideas which in an age animate and agitate humanity.
Sayfa 72 - ... the mode of existence decreed to a permanent body composed of transitory parts ; wherein, by the disposition of a stupendous wisdom, moulding together the great mysterious incorporation of the human race, the whole at one time is never old, or middle-aged, or young, but, in a condition of unchangeable constancy, moves on through the varied tenor of perpetual decay, fall, renovation, and progression.
Sayfa 22 - ... or killing or otherwise hurting any person by such infernal arts, should be guilty of felony without benefit of clergy, and suffer death. And, if any person should attempt by sorcery to discover hidden treasure, or to restore stolen goods, or to provoke unlawful love, or to hurt any man or beast, though the same were not effected, he or she should suffer imprisonment and pillory for the first offence, and death for the second.
