Σελίδα 125 - I am but mad north-north-west: when the wind is southerly I know a hawk from a handsaw.
Σελίδα 119 - For nought so vile that on the earth doth live, But to the earth some special good doth give; Nor aught so good, but, strain'd from that fair use, Revolts from true birth, stumbling on abuse: Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied, And vice sometime's by action dignified.
Σελίδα 7 - And all things weigh'd in custom's falsest scale ; Opinion an omnipotence — whose veil Mantles the earth with darkness, until right And wrong are accidents, and men grow pale Lest their own judgments should become too bright, And their free thoughts be crimes, and earth have too much light.
Σελίδα 113 - It is no pleasure to me, in revising my volumes, to observe how much paper is wasted in confutation. Whoever considers the revolutions of learning, and the various questions of greater or less importance, upon which wit and reason have exercised their powers, must lament the unsuccessfulness of inquiry, and the slow advances of truth, when he reflects, that great part of the labour of every writer is only the destruction of those that went before him.
Σελίδα 26 - And such," said Lord Mansfield, "is the extraordinary subtlety and cunning of madmen that, when he was cross-examined on the trial in London, as he had successfully been before, in order to expose his madness, all the ingenuity of the bar, and all the authority of the Court, could not make him say a...

Σελίδα 55 - ... the phenomena of motion in animal life. If we reflect that this action is exerted by substances which are material, tangible, and ponderable; that they disappear in the organism ; that a double dose acts more powerfully than a single one ; that, after a time, a fresh dose must be given, if we wish to produce the action a second time, — all these considerations, viewed chemically, permit only one form of explanation : the supposition, namely, that these compounds, by means of their elements,...
Σελίδα 115 - Slave, I have set my life upon a cast, And I will stand the hazard of the die: I think, there be six Richmonds in the field ; Five have I slain to-day, instead of him: — A horse ! a horse ! my kingdom for a horse ! [Exeunt.
Σελίδα 7 - The imputation of novelty is a terrible charge amongst those who judge of men's heads, as they do of their perukes, by the fashion, and can allow none to be right but the received doctrines.
Σελίδα 135 - But his pride is greater than his ignorance, and what he wants in knowledge he supplies by sufficiency. When he has looked about him as far as he can, he concludes there is no more to be seen ; when he is at the end of his line, he is at the bottom of the ocean ; when he has shot his best, he is sure none ever did, or ever can, shoot better, or beyond it. His own reason he holds to be the certain measure of truth ; and his own knowledge, of what is possible in nature.
