Page 63 - 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. Far from me and from my friends be such frigid philosophy, as may conduct us indifferent and unmoved over any ground which has been dignified by wisdom, bravery, or virtue.

Page 208 - For example, does it not require some pains and skill to form the general idea of a triangle ? (which is yet none of the most abstract comprehensive and difficult) ; for it must be neither oblique nor rectangle, neither equilateral, equicrural, nor scalenon, but all and none of these at once.
Page 394 - With half that kindling majesty dilate Thy strong conception, as when Brutus rose Refulgent from the stroke of Caesar's fate, Amid the crowd of patriots ; and his arm Aloft extending, like eternal Jove When guilt brings down the thunder, call'd aloud On Tully's name, and shook his crimson steel, And bade the father of his country hail ? For lo ! the tyrant prostrate on the dust, And Rome again is free...
Page 295 - Of human race; the large ambitious wish To make them blest; the sigh for suffering worth Lost in obscurity; the noble scorn Of tyrant pride; the fearless great resolve; The wonder which the dying patriot draws, Inspiring glory through remotest time; Th...
