Sayfa 145 - The proposition is peace. Not peace through the medium of war; not peace to be hunted through the labyrinth of intricate and endless negotiations; not peace to arise out of universal discord fomented from principle in all parts of the empire; not peace to depend on the juridical determination of perplexing questions, or the precise marking the shadowy boundaries of a complex government.

Sayfa 159 - COWPER. fHE stranger who would form a correct opinion of the English character must not confine his observations to the metropolis.

Sayfa 94 - And he said ; a certain man had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father ; Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me.
Sayfa 145 - It is simple peace, sought in its natural course and in its ordinary haunts. It is peace sought in the spirit of peace, and laid in principles purely pacific. I propose, by removing the ground of the difference, and by restoring the former unsuspecting confidence of the colonies in the mother country, to give permanent satisfaction to your people...
Sayfa 160 - It is in the country that the Englishman gives scope to his natural feelings. He breaks loose gladly from the cold formalities and negative civilities of town; throws off his habits of shy reserve, and becomes joyous and free-hearted.
