Sayfa 38 - Not to covet nor desire other men's goods ; but to learn and labour truly to get mine own living, and to do my duty in that state of life, unto which it shall please God to call me.
Sayfa 93 - ... whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundations on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
Sayfa 80 - ... leisure which permit the development of the faculties that raise man above the animal. Mind, not muscle, is the motor of progress, the force which compels nature and produces wealth. In turning men into machines we are wasting the highest powers. Already in our society there is a favored class who need take no thought for the morrow— what they shall eat, or what they shall drink, or wherewithal they shall be clothed.
Sayfa 64 - It is doubtless true, that one-half of the world does not know how the other half lives.
Sayfa 89 - In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me : As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, While God is marching on.
Sayfa 94 - I. Men are born, and always continue, free and equal in respect of their rights. Civil distinctions, therefore, can be founded only on public utility. II. The end of all political associations is the preservation of the natural and imprescriptible rights of man; and these rights are liberty, property, security, and resistance of oppression.
Sayfa 242 - Social reform is not to be secured by noise and shouting ; by complaints and denunciation; by the formation of parties, or the making of revolutions ; but by the awakening of thought and the progress of ideas. Until there be correct thought, there cannot be right action ; and when there is correct thought, right action mil follow.
Sayfa 91 - Duty to the classes above you, and fulfil — as far as in you lies — your own. Preach virtue, sacrifice, and love, and be yourselves virtuous, loving, and ready for self-sacrifice. Speak your thoughts boldly, and make known your wants courageously ; but without anger, without re-action, and without threats. The strongest menace, — if indeed there be those for whom threats are necessary, — will be the firmness, not the irritation, of your speech.
Sayfa 122 - It deserves to be remarked too, that, if we consult experience, the cheapness of wine seems to be a cause, not of drunkenness, but of sobriety. The inhabitants of the wine countries are in general the soberest people in Europe ; witness the Spaniards, the Italians, and the inhabitants of the sou them provinces of France.
