Sayfa 152 - Better to hunt in fields for health unbought Than fee the doctor for a nauseous draught. The wise for cure on exercise depend : God never made His work for man to mend.
Sayfa 131 - As man, perhaps, the moment of his breath Receives the lurking principle of death; The young disease, that must subdue at length, Grows with his growth, and strengthens with his strength; So, cast and mingled with his very frame.
Sayfa 162 - Fill'd with the face of heaven, which, from afar, Comes down upon the waters; all its hues, From the rich sunset to the rising star, Their magical variety diffuse: And now they change ; a paler shadow strews Its mantle o'er the mountains; parting day Dies like the dolphin, whom each pang imbues •*> With a new colour as it gasps away, The last still loveliest, — till — 'tis gone — and all is gray.
Sayfa 4 - whose teaching, that inflammation constitutes the great instrument of destruction in every form of phthisis, was for a long time either ignored, or regarded as erroneous, by most of his contemporaries.
Sayfa 159 - Nor rural sights alone, but rural sounds, Exhilarate the spirit, and restore The tone of languid Nature. Mighty winds, That sweep the skirt of some far-spreading wood Of ancient growth, make music not unlike The dash of Ocean on his winding shore, And lull the spirit while they fill the mind ; Unnumber'd branches waving in the blast, And all their leaves fast fluttering, all at once.

Clinical observation shows that the manifestation of these forms of lung disease, chronic and acute, must be looked upon as the evidence and result of a serious, perhaps final, diminution of vital or nervous energy. In other words, they may be considered the evidence of incipient...
Sayfa 6 - Under 5 years. 5 to 9 years. 10 to 19 years. 20 to 29 years. 30 to 39 years. 40 to 49 years. 50 to 59 years. 60 to 69 years. 70 to 79 years.
Sayfa 161 - Melodious birds sing madrigals,' and spend weeks delightfully, sketching, botanising, geologising, fishing or hunting, but always and ever recuperating. . . . . As one has wisely said, ' No one need be afraid of the sunlight of Colorado. It has all the beneficial effects of sunlight in other countries, with none of its enervating effects common elsewhere. Bask in it, enjoy it all you can, for few have as yet fully appreciated the beneficial effect of the chemical action of sunlight on the blood.
Sayfa 149 - The unfavorable or negative influence of high altitudes upon the progress of consumption is mainly seen in proportion as the disease approaches or is complicated with the following conditions, which are intensified by an irritable, nervous state, and lack of desirable will-power, aided by the stimulus and hope of youth ; ie., First, cardiac disease, if associated with increased labor and abnormal activity of the heart. Second, the stage of softening in acute cases and with extensive deposit.
Sayfa 67 - As to the desirability of moist climates for consumptive patients, the evidence is decidedly against their use in the treatment of ordinary chronic phthisis." If we attempt to explain why it is that phthisis is more prevalent in moist climates than in dry, we might assign as a cause the prevalence of germs, or the impurity of the air, containing the effluvia of...
