The same immiscibility is shown between themselves. This is the reason for our separate rooms for children, with their special collections and trained assistants, and also for our efforts to co-ordinate the child’s reading with his school work.

There is also a difference between the famous Oh eyes no eyes, but fountains full of tears! The infliction of stripes and of hideous mutilations is frequently directed in the Capitularies, and even torture and banishment for life are prescribed as a punishment for insulting bishops and priests in church.[1503] This apparent inconsistency is only a repetition of what we have seen in the Persian and Indian institutions, where torture was superfluous in the presence of other forms of proof, and in Greece and Rome where it makes its appearance in the absence of those forms. These crude projectors give, in their new plan and elevation of society, neither ‘princes’ palaces nor poor men’s cottages,’ but a sort of log-houses and gable-ends, in which the solid contents and square dimensions are to be ascertained and parcelled out to a nicety; they employ the carpenter, joiner, and bricklayer, but will have nothing to say to the plasterer, painter, paper-hanger, upholsterer, carver and gilder, &c.; so that I am afraid, in this fastidious and luxurious age, they will hardly find tenants for their bare walls and skeletons of houses, run up in haste and by the job. By the use of what has been called above “museum material” time may be saved and better results reached. But this hardly belongs to the present division of our subject.

The earth by these labours of mankind has been obliged to redouble her natural fertility, and to maintain a greater multitude of inhabitants. First, this is to shift the ground of the argument; for it requires to be made out how a man can be said to have an interest in what he does not feel.

Nothing can be more unlike to what really passes in the world, than that persons engaged in the most interesting situations, both of public and private life, in sorrow, in disappointment, in distress, in despair, should, in all that they say and do, be constantly accompanied with a fine concert of instrumental Music. Does he come to regard the library as his intellectual home and the librarian and his assistants as friends?

Before I can be affected by my own pain, I must first be put in pain.

Several successive disappointments, and an immense outlay of capital in endeavouring to erect substantial havens for the guidance of the river waters into the sea, had been experienced, and at length finally accomplished by the erection of those beautiful piers and noble jetty. In several places on this beach, the sand, shingle, &c., do not exceed four feet in depth, and in some instances are still shallower; thus at Cromer, a large body of calcareous deposition exists, and projects above the beach at low water mark; but between that and the cliffs, now temporarily protected by a sea wall, a shallow or cavity of considerable length and depth must have existed: this induced the inhabitants, who had witnessed the good the jetty had effected (previous to the injury Cromer sustained, and alluded to in a former chapter), to insert a groin immediately to the southward, or rather westward, of the town, eighty-four yards in length. He proceeds— ‘_I have mentioned above, that voluntary motion and the five external senses, common to man and animals, are innate._ Moreover, if man and animals feel certain propensities and sentiments _with clear and distinct consciousness_, we must consider these faculties as innate.’—[The _clear and distinct consciousness_ has nothing to do with the matter.]—‘Thus, if in animals we find examples of mutual inclination between the sexes, of maternal care for the young, of attachment, of mutual assistance, of sociableness, of union for life, of peaceableness, of desire to fight, of propensity to destroy, of circumspection, of slyness, of love of flattery, of obstinacy, &c. We must employ Mr. The point of view which I am struggling to attack is perhaps related to the metaphysical theory of the substantial unity of the soul: for my meaning is, that the poet has, not a “personality” to express, but a particular medium, which is only a medium and not a personality, in which impressions and experiences combine in peculiar and unexpected ways.

The _conscious_ or connecting link between our ideas, which forms them into separate groups or compares different parts and views of a subject together, seems to be that which is principally wanting in sleep; so that any idea that presents itself in this anarchy of the mind is lord of the ascendant for the moment, and is driven out by the next straggling notion that comes across it. Secondly, it must be capable of feeling those sensations. _Shakespeare_: ’Tis in my memory locked, And you yourself shall keep the key of it.

The very oscillation of the mind in its first perilous and staggering search after truth, brings together extreme arguments and illustrations, that would never occur in a more settled and methodised state of opinion, and felicitous suggestions turn up when we are trying experiments on the understanding, of which we can have no hope when we have once made up our minds to a conclusion, and only go over the previous steps that led to it. The idea of the utility of all qualities of this kind, is plainly an afterthought, and not what first recommends them to our approbation.
