Page 68 - The State shall not be a party to, or interested in, any work of internal improvement, nor engaged in carrying on any such work, except in the expenditure of grants to the State of land or other property...
Page 182 - Industry in Art is a necessity — not a virtue — and any evidence of the same, in the production, is a blemish, not a quality ; a proof, not of achievement, but of absolutely insufficient work, for work alone will efface the footsteps of work.
Page 341 - It is the plan of the writers of the different volumes to enter into the real life of the peoples, and to bring them before the reader as they actually lived, labored, and struggled — as they studied and wrote, and as they amused themselves.
