Librarians will not be apt to attach much importance to this distinction, and those whose collections include treatises on textiles with colored plates will not hesitate to supplement them with mounted specimens of the actual textile with typewritten descriptions. Now the most frequented spot in the library, where I recommend that the music collection shall be displayed, is not the place for a piano or for its use. Her arrested thought exhibits itself, in the King or sacred books collected by Confucius five hundred years before the Christian era, in nearly the same form as is found in the orthodox opinion of to-day. If you have a pile of slips to alphabetize, you do not go through the whole mass to pick out the A’s, and then again for the B’s and so on. In the sense of “to write,” _zabac_ is no longer found in the language, and instead of its old meaning, it now refers to ordinary ink. F. I saw a set of young naval officers, very genteel-looking young men, playing at rackets not long ago, and it is impossible to describe the uncouthness of their motions and unaccountable contrivances for hitting the ball.—Something effeminate as well as common-place, then, enters into the composition of the gentleman: he is a little of the _petit-maitre_ in his pretensions. Though he seldom shows any symptoms of anger, yet his vengeance, when he comes to give way to it, is always sanguinary and dreadful. Even when the spirit of the age (that is, the progress of intellectual refinement, warring with our natural infirmities) no longer allows us to carry our vindictive and headstrong humours into effect, we try to revive them in description, and keep up the old bugbears, the phantoms of our terror and our hate, in imagination. What more natural, then, that they should feel these incursions of violent and quite improper-sounding noises to be a kind of playful throwing aside of order and rule? You mistrust your ears and eyes, and are in a fair way to resign the use of your understanding. There remain, however, either portions or descriptions of not less than sixteen of these curious records. Le but de l’activite propre de l’homme est de nettoyer sa personnalite, de la laver de toutes les souillures qu’y deposa l’education, de la degager de toutes les empreintes qu’y laisserent nos admirations adolescentes; and again: Flaubert incorporait toute sa sensibilite a ses ?uvres….

In the absence of evidence, the oath of the defendant was final, and this incitement to perjury could only be repressed by investing the oath with the qualities of the ordeal. Aristotle presents thought, stripped to the essential structure, and he is a great _writer_. Certain colours are more agreeable than others, and give more delight to the eye the first time it ever beholds them. For purely selfish reasons, therefore, the St. The quantity {374} of the first element having been thus increased beyond what was sufficient to fill up the interstices of the second, it must, in many places, have been heaped up together, without any mixture of the second along with it. That no regard is due to the disappointment of the wretch who brings him into this situation, that no injury is done to the robber, and consequently that nothing can be extorted by force, will admit of no sort of dispute. In fact, the ordeal was practically looked upon as a torture by those whose enlightenment led them to regard as a superstition the faith popularly reposed in it. What a peep for a craniologist! The strongest minds are by rights the most independent and ingenious: but then they are competitors in arranged marriages is the topic ( i want this essto be supporting arrange marriages not against it ) the lists, and jealous of the prize. This did not imply much spontaneous power or fertility of invention; he was an intellectual posture-master, rather than a man of real elasticity and vigour of mind. It is also rare, tho not totally unknown, for a library to give publicity to a church in any of the ways that are proper for this to be done. I once heard him say in a public room, that he thought he had quite as good an idea of Athens from reading the Travelling Catalogues of the place, as if he lived there for years. Each player hurled his spear at it, the object being to stop the hoop by casting the spear within its rim. Of all the corrupters of moral sentiments, therefore, faction and fanaticism have always been by far the greatest. No statement on record. Her natural talents are good, and improved by reading; her disposition is friendly and benevolent, but hasty, credulous, and incautious. Within _Tamburlaine_ it occurs in the form of monotony, especially in the facile use of resonant names (_e.g._ the recurrence of “Caspia” or “Caspian” with the same tone effect), a practice in which Marlowe was followed by Milton, but which Marlowe himself outgrew. Scott’s Antiquary and Fielding’s Parson Adams are characters which at once entertain and win us. Self-love, reason and sentiment, therefore, are the three different sources which have been assigned for the principle of approbation. _ae_ or _i_. Indeed, we read of crude forms of a comic art among savages so low in the scale as the Australians and the Tasmanians. Symons may at one time have been influenced, is one man in his poetry and a different man in his criticism; to this extent and in this respect only, that he is satisfying a different impulse; he is criticizing, expounding, arranging. As he had done so much, he should, we think, have been allowed to acquire the complete merit of putting an end to it. The laughter is the note of a triumphant spirit, and yet of one in which, in the moment of triumph, the nascent fear leaves its trace. An innocent man, brought to {108} the scaffold by the false imputation of an infamous or odious crime, suffers the most cruel misfortune which it is possible for innocence to suffer. He would, I imagine, first of all, express very strongly his sorrow for the misfortune of that unhappy people, he would make many melancholy reflections upon the precariousness of human life, and the vanity of all the labours of man, which could thus be annihilated in a moment. In our own library a branch that circulates 500 to 1000 of its own books daily will give out only two or three from other branches. He said that he felt that the librarian should know that he was not at fault, had not broken the rules, and had a clear record. So far from having any merit of their own, they diminish, it pretends, the merit of benevolence, when they co-operate with it; and prudence, it is asserted, when employed only in promoting private interest, can never even be imagined a virtue. The fine arts, such as painting, which reveals the face of nature, and poetry, which paints the heart of man, are true and unsophisticated, because they are conversant with real objects, and because they are cultivated for amusement without any further view or inference; and please by the truth of imitation only. The Londoner may delight his country listener with his misunderstandings of {105} what to the latter seems perfectly self-explanatory. M——’s conversation is as fine-cut as her features, and I like to sit in the room with that sort of coronet face. To enrich the mind of a country by works of art or science, and leave yourself poor, is not the way for any one to rank as respectable, at least in his life-time:—to oppress, to enslave, to cheat, and plunder it, is a much better way. And the like is probably true of individual laughter. How should animals have any idea of what they have not felt?’ Page 59. They are all mischievous, and meant to lower other people. {440} When he lays his hand upon the body either of another man, or of any other animal, though he knows, or at least may know, that they feel the pressure of his hand as much as he feels that of their body: yet as this feeling is altogether external to him, he frequently gives no attention to it, and at no time takes any further concern in it than he is obliged to do by that fellow-feeling which Nature has, for the wisest purposes, implanted in man, not only towards all other men, but (though no doubt in a much weaker degree) towards all other animals. It is the juxtaposition and interaction of two tendencies of widely removed {340} moral levels, and quite disproportionate in their strength which supplies the rich variety of the entertaining. No critic has succeeded in making him appear pleasurable or even interesting. As a whole, the Partidas were too elaborate and too much in advance of the wants of the age to be immediately successful as a work of legislation, and they were not confirmed by the Cortes until 1348. The eye-brows were arched mathematically as if with a pair of compasses, and the distances between the nose and mouth, the forehead and chin, determined according to a ‘foregone conclusion,’ and the features of the identical individual were afterwards accommodated to them, how they could![2] Horne Tooke used to maintain that no one could write a good prose style, who was not accustomed to express himself _viva voce_, or to talk in company. When leaders high up in “society” pay homage to the deity of the climbing money-maker by betaking themselves to trade under assumed names, the mirth of Midas and of his whole despised caste may find its opportune vent. They are usually reasons for excluding an edition rather than a book, though sometimes the only obtainable edition offends in so many of these ways as to make it unpurchasable, even if otherwise desirable.

Dr. For this purpose, I propose to write the following Essays: 1st.—On Classification, and Tables in Illustration. This combination, again, seems to involve a simultaneous presence in consciousness of the two elements, and not merely a rapid alternation of two phases of feeling. The most eloquent exhortation of this kind will have little effect upon him. The fixing our attention on a single point makes us more sensible of the delay, and hangs an additional weight of fretful impatience on every moment of expectation. In this I am peculiarly happy, that I am exempted from the common Task of other Dedicators, who lie under an Obligation of publishing to the World those Excellencies of their Patrons, which perhaps appear no where but in their Epistles. Had Massinger had a nervous system as refined as that of Middleton, Tourneur, Webster, or Ford, his style would be a triumph. The bigness of our social scheme, its instability and “go-aheadness,” its reckless activity—these and other features, aided by the eagerness of people to gain publicity for their doings and a corresponding readiness of journals to accord it, appear to secure for the quiet onlooker to-day the enjoyment of an exuberant crop of personal oddities, pushful pretences, disparities between position and qualification, and the other amusing features of the social scene. Without tranquillity there can be no enjoyment; and where there is perfect tranquillity there is scarce any thing which is not capable of amusing. The dress and pride. The departments concerned may not know of this duplication, or they may realize that it is going on and be unwilling to stop it for various reasons. We judge of men not by what they do, but by what they are. The _momentum_ of the will is necessary to give direction and constancy to any of our actions; and this again can only be determined by the ideas of future good and evil, and the connection which the mind perceives between certain actions, and the attainment of the one or the prevention of the other. (A yellow center surrounded by water drops, _atl_, _a_.) ] [Illustration: FIG. This enables us in a measure to define the limits of the region known to the human race at this, its earliest epoch; with our present deficient knowledge we can do so only partially and by exclusion. The thunder of either theatre ought certainly never to be louder than that which the orchestra is capable of producing; and their most dreadful tempests ought never to exceed what the scene painter is capable of representing. I feel it accordingly as something which is not merely an affection of the hand, but altogether external to and independent of my hand. The mob, when they are gazing at a dancer on the slack rope, naturally writhe and twist and balance their own bodies, as they see him do, and as they feel that they themselves must do if in his situation. We are all aware that a phonetic symbol may express the sound either of a whole word of several syllables, or of a single syllable, or of a simple acoustic element. To recognize it as a legal precept was to deprive the proceeding of its solemnity and to render it no longer a security worthy the confidence of the people or sufficient to occupy the attention of a court of justice. It embraces many other parts of Christian and moral duty. Those who are fond of deducing all our sentiments from certain refinements of self-love, think themselves at no loss to account, according to their own principles, both for this pleasure and this pain. He naturally dreads, not only to be hated, but to be hateful; or to be that thing which is the natural and proper object of hatred. The objects or ideas are the same in both cases, if that were all: but this is not sufficient to prove that they must have the same accompaniments, or associations, because in the one case they are impressed on different minds, and in the other on the same mind at different times, which is expressly contrary to the principle of association, unless we assume by the help of a verbal sophism that the same generical idea is the same associated idea, and this again would lead to the absurd consequence above stated. Years afterwards, when he was Duke of Normandy, she presented herself before him with two likely youths, whom she asserted to be pledges of his former affection. Bad wishes, bad views, bad designs, might still be suspected: and while these excited the same indignation with bad conduct, while bad intentions were as much resented as bad actions, they would equally expose the person to punishment and resentment. Allusions to past occurrences are thought trivial, nor is it always safe to touch upon more general subjects. Time and measure are to instrumental Music what order and method are to discourse; they break it into proper parts and divisions, by which we are enabled both to remember better what is gone before, and frequently to foresee somewhat of what is to come after; we frequently foresee the return of a period which we know must correspond to another which we remember to have gone before; and, according to the saying of an ancient philosopher and musician, the enjoyment of Music arises partly from memory and partly from foresight. It is worthy of notice, that when taken to the swing {198} a second time, she talked more sensibly, refrained from swearing, promised to behave better, and in a sweet tone begged not to be swung: since this time, she has been less violent, has shaken her head and sworn less than before; indeed she has a more good-natured manner, and very often expends her excitement in mirthful dancing and singing, and generally seizes my hand, that I may dance with her. These, therefore, as well as the Fixed Stars, did not derive their motion from the circumambient body, but had each of them, in itself, and peculiar to itself, a vital principle of motion, which directed it to move with its own peculiar velocity, and its own peculiar direction. This Grillandus describes as terrible; the whole body is torn, the limbs are ready to part from the trunk, and death itself is preferable.

Kean stamped himself the first night in Shylock; he never did any better. The trouble with all these good people is just hysteresis–lag. Not a few of our most cherished valuations–artistic, religious, political and social–are conventional fetishes which have been slowly evolved in the course of a great number of years as the result of determining factors, for the most part accidental and forgotten, and probably called into existence for totally different and unconnected reasons. Lecky frequently dwells on this fact, as in the following passage: “In most men the love of truth is so languid, and their reluctance to encounter mental prejudices is so great, that they yield their judgments without an effort to the current, withdraw their minds from all opinions or arguments opposed to their own, and thus speedily convince themselves of the truth of what they wish to believe.” Dr. I ‘unfold the book and volume of the brain,’ and transcribe the characters I see there as mechanically as any one might copy the letters in a sampler. That the fitness of any system or machine to produce the end for which it was intended, bestows a certain propriety and beauty upon the whole, and renders the very thought and contemplation of it agreeable, is so obvious that nobody has over-looked it. Windham was, I have heard, a silent man in company. Robinson that the young of {163} the anthropoid apes are specially ticklish in the regions of the surface of the body which correspond with the ticklish regions in the case of the child. It will thus be noted that the question of the delivery station pure and simple, as opposed to the deposit station and the branch–a question once hotly debated–is at bottom simply that of the closed shelf versus the open shelf. Pitt (though as opposite to each other as possible) were essentially speakers, not authors, in their mode of oratory. If virtue, therefore, in every particular instance, necessarily pleases for its own sake, and if vice as certainly displeases the mind, it cannot be reason, but immediate sense and feeling, which thus reconciles us to the one, and alienates us from the other. He appears to view himself in the light in which the impartial spectator naturally and necessarily views him, as but one of the multitude, in the eye of that equitable judge, of no more consequence than any other in it, but bound at all times to sacrifice and devote himself to the safety, to the service, and even to the glory of the greater number.
