עמוד 71 - These are thy glorious works, Parent of good, Almighty, thine this universal frame, Thus wondrous fair; thyself how wondrous then ! Unspeakable, who sitt'st above these heavens, To us invisible, or dimly seen In these thy lowest works; yet these declare Thy goodness beyond thought, and power divine.
עמוד 164 - Whatever withdraws us from the power of our senses, whatever makes the past, the distant, or the future predominate over the present, advances us in the dignity of thinking beings. Far from me and my friends be such frigid philosophy as may conduct us, indifferent and unmoved, over any ground which has been dignified by wisdom, bravery or virtue.
עמוד 73 - But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you : that ye may be the children of your Father who is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
עמוד 394 - The room in which I lodged was on the ground floor, and one of a long range of rooms under a gallery, and the door of it opened outward and flat against the wall ; so that when it was open the inside of the door appeared outward, and the contrary when it was shut. I had three comrades, fellow prisoners with me, Joseph Vanhuile of Bruges, since president of the municipality of that town, Michael and Robbins Bastini of Louvain.
עמוד 64 - ... stating the strong obligation on every man to support his own children ; the impropriety, and even immorality, of marrying without a fair prospect of being able to do this ; the evils which had resulted to the poor themselves, from the attempt which had been made to assist by public institutions in a duty which ought to be exclusively appropriated to parents ; and the absolute necessity which had at length appeared, of abandoning all such institutions, on account of their producing effects totally...
עמוד 64 - Though to marry in this case is in my opinion clearly an immoral act, yet it is not one which society can justly take upon itself to prevent or punish; because the punishment provided for it by the laws of nature falls directly and most severely upon the individual who commits the act, and through him, only more remotely and feebly, on the society. When nature will govern and punish for us, it is a very miserable ambition to wish to snatch the rod from her hands, and draw upon ourselves the odium...
עמוד 164 - We were now treading that illustrious island, which was once the luminary of the Caledonian regions, whence savage clans and roving barbarians derived the benefits of knowledge, and the blessings of religion. To abstract the mind from all local emotion would be impossible, if it were endeavoured, and would be foolish, if it were possible. Whatever withdraws us from the power of our senses ; whatever makes the past, the distant, or the future predominate over the present, advances us in the dignity...
עמוד 393 - I AM the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, and out of the house of bondage.
עמוד 169 - CHRIST, in the truth of our nature, was made like unto us in all things, sin only except ; from which he was clearly void, both in his flesh and in his spirit.
עמוד 56 - ... •whole circumstances of the country; and when the demand for provisions is greater than the supply, by publishing a particular edict., to make the supply at once equal to or greater than the demand. Many men who would shrink at the proposal of a maximum, would propose themselves that the price of labour...
