Halaman 9 - I alluded rather flippantly, I fear, to some witty passage in ' Tom Jones : ' he replied. ' I am shocked to hear you quote from so vicious a book. I am sorry to hear you have read it: a confession which no modest lady should ever make. I scarcely know a more corrupt work.
Halaman 32 - And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard. What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it?
Halaman 161 - Some feelings are to mortals given, With less of earth in them than heaven : And if there be a human tear From passion's dross refined and clear, A tear so limpid and so meek, It would not stain an angel's cheek, 'Tis that which pious fathers shed Upon a duteous daughter's head...
Halaman 72 - I had discovered a thing very little known, which is, that in one's whole life one can never have any more than a single mother You may think this is obvious, and (what you call) a trite observation. You are a green gosling ! I was at the same age (very near) as wise as you, and yet I never discovered this (with full evidence and conviction I mean) till it was too late. It is thirteen...
Halaman 32 - And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil.
Halaman 165 - If the strongest argument to show that the mind perishes with the body, nay the only argument be, as it is indubitably is, derived from the phenomena of death, the fact to which we have been referring affords an answer to this.

Now, here is exactly the instance desiderated, it being manifest, that the same process which takes place on the...
Halaman 79 - Cookworthy upon a friend of his having discovered on an estate of mine in the parish of St. Stephens, a certain white saponaceous clay, and close by it a species of granite or moor stone, white with greenish spots...
Halaman 166 - ... before. Here, then, we have that proof so much desiderated — the existence of the soul after the dissolution of the bodily frame with which it was connected. The two cases cannot, in any soundness of reasoning, be distinguished ; and this argument, therefore, one of pure induction, derived partly from physical science, through the evidence of our senses, partly from psychological science by the testimony of our consciousness, appears to prove the possible Immortality of the Soul almost as rigorously...
Halaman 182 - The truth is, that in these days the grand "primum mobile" of England is cant; cant political, cant poetical, cant religious, cant moral; but always cant, multiplied through all the varieties of life. It is the fashion, and while it lasts will be too powerful for those who can only exist by taking the tone of the time.
Halaman 21 - When the ear heard him then it blessed him, and when the eye saw him it gave witness to him : Because he delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him. The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon him: and he caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
