Yet with reference to this, I would observe, in the first place, that in the most opposite ranks and conditions of life, we find qualities shewing themselves, which we should have least expected,—grace in a cottage, humanity in a bandit, sincerity in courts; and secondly, in ordinary cases, and in the mixed mass of human affairs, the mind contrives to lay hold of those circumstances and motives which suit its own bias and confirm its natural disposition, whatever it may be, gentle or rough, vulgar or refined, spirited or cowardly, open-hearted or cunning. This method of reasoning, however, will not go a great way to prove the doctrine of an abstract principle of self-interest, for by the same rule it would follow that I hate myself in hating any other person. It may be kept in vertical file cases, in loose-leaf binders or in ordinary portfolios. We may have seen faces that spoke ‘a soul as fair— ‘Bright as the children of yon azure sheen’— yet that met with but an indifferent reception in the world—and that being supported by a couple of spindle-shanks and a weak stomach, in fulfilling what was expected of them, ‘Fell flat, and shamed their worshippers.’ Hence the successes of such persons did not correspond with their deserts. He has suffered from his great reputation as a critic and theorist, from the effects of his intelligence. The most important part of our education, says Emil Reich, we gain after we are twenty-five years old.

They collected it in the Provinces of Tlachco and Itzmiquilpan, but did not esteem it of much value, and their first knowledge of it as a plummet must have been when they saw it in the hands of the Spaniards.

Thus the bishop required eleven bishops, the priest five priests, and the deacon two deacons; but Cardinal Henry of Susa who enunciates this says it is an error, and that the number is at the discretion of the judge.[103] The rule, moreover, that the compurgators must be of the same rank and class as the accused was waived when they were presumably inimical to him or the proper number could not be had, and thus a cleric might be cleared by the oaths of laymen.[104] Variations likewise occur arising from the nature of the case and the character of the plaintiff. Tides are greatest in any given line of coast, in narrow bays and estuaries; and are least in the intervening tracts where the land is prominent.

In morals, the cultivation of a _moral sense_ is not the last thing to be attended to—nay, it is the first. The vivid lightning’s transient flash, And then the deafening thunder crash, Proclaims the elemental war; And when the lightning leaves the skies, And when the rolling thunder dies, Hark, how the raging waters roar.

It may not be the Goddess Fortuna, or her modern successor, but it is very real and it is worth investigating and taking into account. That, _prima facie_, we have to do in this case with a real difference in the mode of perception, seems indisputable; let the reader compare the effect of the two spectacles, a man wearing an extravagantly tall hat, and a small boy wearing a hat of the height of a man’s; or, again, a tiny man alone, and a short man by the side of a tall woman. _i_, a connective.

EXAMPLES of Nature endeavouring to combat with herself are shown from the immense quantity of sand, shingle, &c., brought from low to high water mark, during the summer months, and should easterly winds prevail, the sand is removed towards the cliffs, and accumulates in some situations more than in others. Gray (who joins to the sublimity of Milton the elegance and harmony of Pope, and to whom nothing is wanting to render him, perhaps, the first poet in the English language, but to have written a little more) is said to have been so much hurt by a foolish and impertinent parody of two of his finest odes, that he never afterwards attempted any considerable work.

When then, as in the insane, all the restraining powers of the mind are lost, can we wonder that the mental energies should be subject to accidental and baneful influences? It is perfectly evident, however, from the study of many American tongues, that at one period of their growth they possessed for a long interval only one tense, which served indifferently for past, present, and future;[352] and even yet most of them form the past and future by purely material means, as the addition of an adverb of time, by accent, quantity or repetition, and in others the tense relation is still unknown.[353] In some tongues, the Omagua of the upper Orinoco for example, there is no sort of connection between the verbal stem and its signs of tense, mode or person.

If the real disposition is concealed for a time and tampered with, how readily it breaks out with the first excuse or opportunity! For him the figures that pursue one another across the stage have no moral substance, and are proper subjects neither for approval nor for disapproval. It was therefore natural that they should perpetuate an ancestral custom, which had arisen from the structure of their society, and which derived its guarantee from the solidarity of families alluded to above.

Poets think they are bound, by the tenour of their indentures to the Muses, to ‘elevate and surprise’ in every line; and not having the usual resources at hand in common or abstracted subjects, aspire to the end without the means. Seurin himself. Fuseli was to blame in this respect. Natural acting is therefore fine, because it implies and calls forth the most varied and strongest feelings that the supposed characters and circumstances can possibly give birth to: it reaches the height of the subject. For the purpose of greater lucidity, it has usually been found that this dual aspect of mind can be best expressed by treating the whole mental organization as consisting of two minds, each endowed with separate and distinct attributes and powers; each capable, under certain conditions, of independent action. The case is not much better with those semi-civilized American nations, the Mayas and Nahuas, who possessed a partially phonetic alphabet, or with the Quichuas, who preserved their records by the ingenious device of the quipu.
