Сторінка 32 - How good is man's life, the mere living! how fit to employ All the heart and the soul and the senses for ever in joy!
Сторінка 32 - Oh, the wild joys of living! the leaping from rock up to rock, The strong rending of boughs from the fir-tree, the cool silver shock Of the plunge in a pool's living water, the hunt of the bear, And the sultriness showing the lion is couched in his lair.
Сторінка 153 - Could we suddenly double the productive powers of the country, we should double the supply of commodities in every market ; but we should, by the same stroke, double the purchasing power. Everybody would bring a double demand as well as supply : everybody would be able to buy twice as much, because every one would have twice as much to offer in exchange.
Сторінка 153 - Because this phenomenon of over-supply, and consequent inconvenience or loss to the producer or dealer, may exist in the case of any one commodity whatever, many persons, including some distinguished political economists, have thought that it may exist with regard to all commodities; that there may be a general over-production of wealth: a supply of commodities in the aggregate, surpassing the demand; and a consequent depressed condition of all classes of producers.
Сторінка 8 - Of the features which characterize this progressive economical movement of civilized nations, that which first excites attention, through its intimate connexion with the phenomena of production, is the perpetual and, so far as human foresight can extend, the unlimited growth of man's power over nature.
Сторінка 92 - Let every tree in every garden own The Red-streak as supreme, whose pulpous fruit With gold irradiate, and vermilion shines, Tempting, not fatal, as the birth of that Primeval interdicted plant that won Fond Eve in hapless hour to taste, and die. This, of more bounteous influence, inspires Poetic raptures, and the lowly Muse Kindles to loftier strains ; even I perceive Her sacred virtue. See ! the numbers flow Easy, whilst, cheer'd with her nectareous juice, Hers, and my country's praises I exalt.
Сторінка 353 - The image of love, that nightly flies To visit the bashful maid, Steals from the jasmine flower, that sighs Its soul, like her, in the shade. The hope, in dreams, of a happier hour That alights on misery's brow, Springs out of the silvery almond -flower, That blooms on a leafless bough.
Сторінка 283 - Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.
Сторінка 366 - ... to fulfil his mission to the utmost of his power ; but it is our duty, the duty of those whom Providence has removed from this awful struggle and placed beyond this fearful danger, manfully, unceasingly, and untiringly to aid by advice, assistance, and example, the great bulk of the people, who, without such aid, must almost inevitably succumb to the difficulty of their task. They will not cast from them the aiding hand, and the Almighty will bless the labours of those who work in His cause.
