Σελίδα 33 - Knowledge dwells In heads replete with thoughts of other men, Wisdom in minds attentive to their own.
Σελίδα 26 - Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.
Σελίδα 27 - Let it simply be asked where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?
Σελίδα 72 - One of the surest signs of the regeneration of society will be, the elevation of the art of teaching to the highest rank in the community. When a people shall learn, that its greatest benefactors and most important members are men devoted to the liberal instruction of all its classes, to the work of raising to life its buried intellect, it will have opened to itself the path of true glory.
Σελίδα 191 - A little word in kindness spoken, A motion, or a tear, Has often healed the heart that's broken. And made a friend sincere. A word, a look, has crushed to earth Full many a budding flower : Which, had a smile but owned its birth, Would bless life's darkest hour.

Σελίδα 27 - Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.
Σελίδα 88 - A victim to the factions which distract my country, and to the enmity 'of the greatest powers of Europe, I have terminated my political career, and I come, like Themistocles, to throw myself upon the hospitality of the British people. I put myself under the protection of their laws ; which I claim from your Royal Highness, as the most powerful, the most constant, and the most generous of my enemies.
Σελίδα 208 - Ham. Do you see yonder cloud, that's almost in shape of a camel? Pol. By the mass, and 'tis like a camel, indeed. Ham. Methinks, it is like a weasel. • Pol. It is backed like a weasel. Ham. Or, like a whale ? Pol. Very like a whale.
Σελίδα 160 - That brings into the home-sick mind All we have loved and left behind, Night is the time for care ; Brooding on hours mis-spent, To see the spectre of Despair Come to our lonely tent ; Like Brutus midst his slumbering host Startled by Caesar's stalwart ghost.
