Página 303 - Whatever withdraws us from the power of our senses, whatever makes the past, the distant, or the future predominate over the present, advances us in the dignity of thinking beings.
Página 290 - It is atheism and blasphemy to dispute what God can do; good Christians content themselves with His will revealed in His Word, so it is presumption and high contempt in a subject to dispute what a King can do, or say that a King cannot do this or that, but | rest in that which is the King's will revealed in his law.
Página 70 - This error cannot much longer exist; for every day will make it more and more evident that the character of man is, without a single exception, always formed for him; that it may be, and is, chiefly, created by his predecessors; that they give him, or may give him, his ideas and habits, which are the powers that govern and direct his conduct.

White clover, and a profusion of sweet-scented flowers, clothe their banks ; above waves the mountain-ash, glowing with scarlet berries ; and beyond, rise hills, and rocks, and mountains, piled upon one another, and fringed with fir to their topmost acclivities.
