Pagina 110 - He, that negotiates between God and man, As God's ambassador, the grand concerns Of judgment and of mercy, should beware Of lightness in his speech. 'Tis pitiful To court a grin, when you should woo a soul ; To break a jest, when pity would inspire Pathetic exhortation ; and t' address The skittish fancy with facetious tales, When sent with God's commission to the heart : So did not Paul.
Pagina 96 - When my love swears that she is made of truth, I do believe her though I know she lies, That she might think me some untutored youth, Unlearned in the world's false subtleties. Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young, Although she knows my days are past the best, Simply I credit her false-speaking tongue, On both sides thus is simple truth suppressed: But wherefore says she not she is unjust?
Pagina 179 - Of praise a mere glutton, he swallow'd what came, And the puff of a dunce he mistook it for fame; Till his relish grown callous, almost to disease, Who pepper'd the highest was surest to please. But let us be candid, and speak out our mind, If dunces applauded, he paid them in kind.

Pagina 163 - Common soup made at home, fish of little cost, any joints, the cheapest vegetables, some happy and unexpensive introduction like the crab, and a pudding,— provided everything is good in quality, and the dishes are well dressed, and served hot and in succession, with their adjuncts — will ensure a quantity of enjoyment which no one need be afraid to offer.
Pagina 58 - ... geological order is that of an ascending series, fishes, reptiles, birds, and mammals ; and that there is a gradual progress from the prevalence of extinct to that of existing species. The time had now arrived for the manifestation of the Divine holiness. The pristine act of creation is that indicated in the first chapter of Genesis, — "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Pagina 71 - ... pain-perceiving nerves of the genital organs. Still more clearly is pain reflected (pain both active and passive) in the love-embrace itself, in the phenomena2 which we previously (pp. 50-51) described, such as fierce embraces, convulsive seizures, grinding of the teeth, screaming and biting, both on the part of the man and on the part of the woman. Lucretius (" De Rerum Natura," iv., verses 1054-1061) gave a vivid description of the normal sadistic and masochistic accompaniments of coitus.
Pagina 162 - ... chemistry merely subservient to the uses of the kitchen. But I will seriously mention some of the studies fundamental to the higher departments of this science : a man may be a good practical chemist, perhaps, without possessing them ; but he never can...
