Σελίδα 10 - Jacob selah lift up your heads O ye gates and be ye lifted up ye everlasting doors and the King of glory shall come in...
Σελίδα 17 - It is the highest impertinence and presumption, therefore, in kings and ministers to pretend to watch over the economy of private people, and to restrain their expense, either by sumptuary laws or by prohibiting the importation of foreign luxuries. They are themselves always, and without any exception, the greatest spendthrifts in the society.
Σελίδα 10 - LORD'S, and the ful1 ness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. 2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. 3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD ? or who shall stand in his holy place ? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his эо soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
Σελίδα 7 - CAMDEN, most reverend head, to whom I owe All that I am in arts, all that I know...
Σελίδα 49 - Small islands not capable of protecting themselves are the proper objects for kingdoms to take under their care; but there is something absurd, in supposing a Continent to be perpetually governed by an island. In no instance hath nature made the satellite larger than its primary planet...
Σελίδα 69 - Taking the whole earth, instead of this island, emigration would of course be excluded; and, supposing the present population equal to a thousand millions, the human species would increase as the numbers, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, and subsistence as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. In two centuries the population would be to the means of subsistence as 256 to 9; in three centuries as 4096 to 13, and in two thousand years the difference would be almost incalculable.
Σελίδα 70 - The positive checks to population are extremely various, and include every cause, whether arising from vice or misery, which in any degree contributes to shorten the natural duration of human life. Under this head, therefore, may be enumerated all unwholesome occupations, severe labour and exposure to the seasons, extreme poverty, bad nursing of children, great towns, excesses of all kinds, the whole train of common diseases and epidemics, wars, plague, and famine.
Σελίδα 12 - ... of the loom contemptible in the comparison. — I could, at leisure, as they walked together, admire their elegant limbs, their velvet shoulders, and their silken wings ; their backs vying with the empyrean in its blue ; and their eyes, each formed of a thousand others, out-glittering the little planes on a brilliant ; above description, and too great almost for admiration.
Σελίδα 23 - And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence; neither was any deceit in his mouth.
Σελίδα 8 - What name, what skill, what faith hast thou in things! What sight in searching the most antique springs!
