עמוד 427 - All this is true, if time stood still; which contrariwise moveth so round, that a froward retention of custom is as turbulent a thing as an innovation; and they that reverence too much old times, are but a scorn to the new.
עמוד 427 - It is good also not to try experiments in States, except the necessity be urgent or the utility evident, and well to beware that it be the reformation that draweth on the change, and not the desire of change that pretendeth the reformation.
עמוד 337 - And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required : and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
עמוד 650 - To produce a forfeiture of the License it is by no means necessary that the holder should be convicted of any new offence. If he associates with notoriously bad characters, leads an idle and dissolute life, or has no visible means of obtaining an honest livelihood, <&c., it will be assumed that he is about to relapse into crime, and he will be at once apprehended, and recommitted to prison under his original sentence.
עמוד 81 - ... and this (says he) is one of the thousand reasons which ought to restrain a man from drony solitude and useless retirement. Solitude (added he one day) is dangerous to reason, without being favourable to virtue : pleasures of some sort are necessary to the intellectual as to the corporeal health; and those who resist gaiety, will be likely for the most part to fall a sacrifice to appetite; for the solicitations of sense are always at hand, and a dram to a vacant and solitary person is a speedy...
עמוד 291 - Men, it is true, no longer believe in the devil's agency ; at least they no longer believe in the power of calling up the devil and transacting business with him ; otherwise there would be hundreds of such stories as that of Faust. But the spirit which created that story and rendered it credible to all Europe remains unchanged. The sacrifice of the future to the present is the spirit of that legend. The blindness to consequences caused by the imperiousness of desire ; the recklessness with which...
עמוד 199 - ... for a general rule that all homicide is malicious, and of course amounts to murder, unless where justified by the command or permission of the law ; excused on the account of accident or self-preservation ; or alleviated into manslaughter, by being either the involuntary consequence of some act, not strictly lawful, or, if voluntary, occasioned by some sudden and sufficiently violent provocation (53). And all these circumstances of justification, excuse, or alleviation, it is incumbent upon the...
עמוד 199 - ... we may take it for a general rule that all homicide is malicious, and of course amounts to murder, unless where justified by the command or permission of the law; excused on the account of accident or self-preservation ; or alleviated into manslaughter, by being either the involuntary consequence of some act, not strictly lawful, or (if voluntary) occasioned by some sudden and sufficiently violent provocation.
עמוד 534 - Es ist verboten' (it is forbidden), and it rarely happened that he did not yield to the opinion of his fellow-prisoners Within the prison walls every description of work is carried on; the prisoners, divided into different gangs and supplied with instruments and tools, make their own clothes, repair their own prison walls, and...
עמוד 279 - The intelligence seemed nothing new to our forlorn angler. ' I know it, sir/ he said ; ' I have been told so by the best...
