It is true, that, in government, it is good to use men of one rank equally; for to countenance some extraordinarily, is to make them insolent, and the rest discontent, because they may claim a due: but, contrariwise, in favor, to use men with much difference and election is good: for it maketh the persons preferred more thankful, and the rest more officious, because all is of favor. _P_. To them the greatest labour is to be pleased: they hate to have nothing to find fault with: to expect them to smile or to converse on equal terms, is the heaviest tax you can levy on their want of animal spirits or intellectual resources. The women of France do not submit to the regular approaches and the sober discipline of age so well as the men. This passage, written after 1605, obviously means more than affection for poetry the product. This question seems to me a very doubtful one, but if it is to be answered in the affirmative, then we have to ask: Is this assumed popular knowledge, or popular error, sufficient to account for the use by both Shakespeare and Bacon of exactly the same expression in exactly the same collocation? When that that is come and gone, England build houses of lime and stone, For after wars you shall have none.” It was generally conceived to be meant of the Spanish fleet that came in eighty-eight; for that the king of Spain’s surname, as they say, is Norway. Peter Martyr, &c.; and among others (not already mentioned,) the Altarpiece of St. On the one hand are the great miracles, the raising from the dead, the healing of the sick, the power over the winds and the sea; on the other: ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit.’ The Son of God who will sit on the right hand of power now lives in the company of publicans, beggars, and harlots, and serves them.

And are we not then beholden to the art for these glimpses of Paradise? He lives, as Keats once said of himself, “in a thousand worlds,” withdrawing at will from one to another, often curtailing his circumference to enlarge his liberty. No doubt Gasparo Visconti duly repaid the admiration thus shown for his poems; but though the admiring friend or patron was not without his uses in the fifteenth century, and even now is occasionally indispensable, when all is said and done the success of a book depends on the reception it meets from an unbiased public, and it is to the public, therefore, that its appeal must finally be made. 141): Presens hoc opusculum non stili aut penne suffragio sed noua artificiosaque invencione quadam ad eusebiam dei industrie per henricum bechtermuncze pie memorie in altauilla est inchoatum et demum sub anno domini M.cccc.l.xvij ipso die leonardi confessoris, qui fuit quarta die mensis nouembris, per nycolaum bechtermuncze fratrem dicti henrici et wygandum spyesz de orthenberg est consummatum.

Among these are the ideas which we receive ready made, and which remain in us without ever being properly assimilated, or again the ideas which we have omitted to cherish and which have withered in neglect. They dreamed of all the world coming to take the truth meekly from Israel’s hands.[39] Jerusalem was to be the sacred city of the earth, and Jud?a, as afterwards during the Crusades, the Holy Land. The serpent-spirit may, however, have made its appearance for a good or a bad purpose, to confer a benefit or to inflict punishment for the misdeeds of the living.

This colophon appears to have been written by the literary partner in the firm, Francesco Tuppo, since no one but himself would have used the Chinese humility of the phrase “inter trecentos studentes minimus.” From the books which he took up, Tuppo must have been a man of some culture; but his Latin, if we may judge by this colophon, was not his strong point.

If two men are measuring the height of a mountain, and one supposes his base to be 1000 feet, whilst the other takes it to be 1001, they would of course form different opinions about the height. A civil war, indeed, is like the heat of a fever; but a foreign war is like the heat of exercise, and serveth to keep the body in health; for, in a slothful peace, both courages will effeminate and manners corrupt.

What we have therefore to do in the vast majority of practical cases is to take the average of a finite number of measurements or observations,–of all those, in fact, which we have in hand,–and take _this_ as our starting point in order to measure the errors. Of course our usual practical resource in such cases is to make appeal to our previous knowledge of the subject in question, which enables us to reject as absurd a great number of hypotheses which can nevertheless make a fair show when they are allowed to rest upon a limited amount of adroitly selected instances.

For the present let us simply show that, if once we enter upon this path, we are of course led to set up the principle of the conservation of energy as a universal law. The boy at play on the ground is miraculous. [Illustration: Cicero. Judging from what we observe among modern savages we cannot doubt that self-interest chiefly would govern the father in connection with his daughter’s marriage.
