Página 7 - Upon these passions it is no doubt true that the state of manners and laws casts a necessary colouring ; but the bearings, to use the language of heraldry, remain the same, though the tincture may be not only different, but opposed in strong contradistinction.
Página 190 - The borders of this romantic reservoir corresponded in beauty ; but it was beauty of a stern and commanding cast, as if in the act of expanding into grandeur.
