Σελίδα 110 - O may I join the choir invisible Of those immortal dead who live again In minds made better by their presence: live In pulses stirred to generosity, In deeds of daring rectitude, in scorn For miserable aims that end with self, In thoughts sublime that pierce the night like stars, And with their mild persistence urge man's search To vaster issues.
Σελίδα 49 - Among the delusions which at different periods have possessed themselves of the minds of large masses of the human race, perhaps the most curious — certainly the least creditable — is the modern soi-disant science of political economy, based on the idea that an advantageous code of social action may be determined, irrespectively of the influence of social affection.
Σελίδα 37 - THE annual labour of every nation is the fund which originally supplies it with all the necessaries and conveniences of life which it annually consumes, and which consist always either in the immediate produce of that labour, or in what is purchased with that produce from other nations.
Σελίδα 37 - According therefore, as this produce, or what is purchased with it, bears a greater or smaller proportion to the number of those who are to consume it, the nation will be better or worse supplied with all the necessaries and conveniences for which it has occasion.

Σελίδα 89 - S , undoubtedly the best versed in economic lore in the whole class, and another who became one of his prizemen were not only amongst the best runners, leapers, and vaulters there, but were also members of the University Football Fifteen, whilst H , another promising student, manifested a considerable degree of bodily activity. When the leapers had sufficiently exerted themselves, the Doctor led the way to a spot on the outskirts of the wood, whence a magnificent panorama of the country presented...
Σελίδα 80 - Hodgson, whose interest in her husband's protege's was scarcely less lively than that of the Professor himself. As Oliver Wendell Holmes has put it, she found out the red-handed, gloveless undergraduate of bucolic antecedents, as he squirmed in his corner, and distilled her soft words upon him like dew upon the green herb — a Florence Nightingale of the breakfast-room, whom nothing could hold back from her errand of mercy. Her escort was enlisted to assist in...
