Стр. xxvi - Unlike our families, these all descend in the female line, and no individual of either sex is allowed to marry another of the same family name. Thus, a woman of the Siwidi family bears the same name as her mother, but neither her father nor her husband can be of that family. Her children and the children of her daughters will also be called Siwidi, but both her sons and daughters are prohibited from an alliance with any individual bearing the same name; though they may marry into the family of their...
Стр. lxxxix - I believe that the experiences of utility organized and consolidated through all past generations of the human race, have been producing corresponding nervous modifications, which, by continued transmission and accumulation, have become in us certain faculties of moral intuition — certain emotions responding to right and wrong conduct, which have no apparent basis in the individual experiences of utility.
Стр. xxiv - A certain mysterious connection exists between a family and its kobong, so that a member of the family will never kill an animal of the species, to which his kobong belongs, should he find it asleep ; indeed he always kills it reluctantly, and never without affording it a chance to escape.
Стр. xcix - ... of society secured. In the atmosphere of luxury that increased wealth produces, refined tastes, perceptions of beauty, intellectual aspirations appear. Faculties that were before dormant are evoked, new directions are given to human energies, and, under the impulse of the desire for wealth, men arise to supply each new want that wealth has produced. Hence, for the most part, arise art, and literature, and science, and all the refinements and elaborations of civilisation, and all the inventions...
Стр. xxxii - E s femmes sont nubiles ( * ) dans les climats chauds, à huit, neuf et dix ans : ainsi l'enfance et le mariage y vont presque toujours ensemble. Elles sont vieilles à vingt ans , la raison ne se trouve donc jamais chez elles avec la beauté. Quand la beauté demande l'empire, la raison le fait refuser ; quand la raison pourroit l'obtenir, la beauté n'est plus.
Стр. 129 - Jam vero principum filios liberalibus artibus erudire, et ingenia Britannorum studiis Gallorum anteferre, ut qui modo linguam Romanam abnuebant, eloquentiam concupiscerent. inde etiam habitus nostri honor, et frequens toga, paullatimque discessum ad delinimenta vitiorum, porticus, et balnea, et conviviorum elegantiam. idque apud imperitos, humanitas vocabatur, cum pars servitutis esset.
Стр. lxix - ... of the species by affinity is also geographical. 4 In countries of a similar climate, but separated by a wide sea or lofty mountains, the families, genera, and species of the one are often represented by closely allied families, genera and species peculiar to the other.
Стр. 428 - Yscythrog; but the number of such poems is so small, that, if the poems attributed to the bards of the sixth century really belong to that period, there is an interval of several centuries, during which such a literature either never existed or has perished, till the twelfth century, from which period a mass of poetic literature existed in Wales, and has been preserved to us. Of the genuine character of that poetry there seems to be no doubt. In order, then, to estimate rightly the place which the...
Стр. 289 - Tooth, are yet totally ignorant of each other's language ; insomuch that it was no uncommon occurrence to see two individuals of different nations sitting upon the ground, and conversing freely with each other by means of the language of signs. In the art of thus conveying their ideas they were thorough adepts ; and their manual display was only interrupted at...
Стр. xcii - Begeisterung all seine Macht gegründet. Dionysos ist im vollsten Sinne des Worts der Frauen Gott, die Quelle aller ihrer sinnlichen und übersinnlichen Hoffnungen, der Mittelpunkt ihres ganzen Daseins, daher von ihnen zuerst in seiner Herrlichkeit erkannt, ihnen geoffenbart, von ihnen verbreitet, durch sie zum Siege geführt.
