In respect that it is solitary, I like it very well; but in respect that it is private, it is a very vile life. Now in respect it is in the fields, it pleaseth me well; but in respect it is not in the court, it is tedious.
עמוד 106 - This world is the best that we live in, To lend, or to spend, or to give in ; But to beg, or to borrow, or get a man's own, 'Tis the very worst world, sir, that ever was known.
עמוד 64 - Europe, there is no reason why it should not have been going on in all countries, whether to the north, or to the south, or to the east, or to the west of Europe. But we are not left to inferences of this sort. It is now admitted by all scientific authorities that at one time the regions within the Arctic Circle enjoyed a tropical or nearly tropical climate.

עמוד 194 - I cannot conclude this despatch without expressing my sense of the importance of the subject of it. My hope is that your experience may enable you to suggest some general plan by which we may acquit ourselves of the obligations which we owe towards this helpless race of beings.
עמוד 168 - To civilize the rude, unpolished world, And lay it under the restraint of laws ; To make man mild, and sociable to man ; To cultivate the wild, licentious savage With wisdom, discipline, and liberal arts — The embellishments of life ; virtues like these Make human nature shine, reform the soul, And break our fierce barbarians into men.
עמוד 109 - ... committed in the appropriation of the revenue derived from thence to the purposes of immigration. A million sterling has, in some shape or other, been appropriated to this purpose.
