Стр. 186 - Curfew tolls * the knell of parting day, The lowing herd wind flowly o'er the lea, The plowman homeward plods his weary way, And leaves the world to darknefs and to me. Now fades the glimmering landfcape on the fight, And all the air...
Стр. 34 - What perception is, every one will know better by reflecting on what he does himself, when he sees, hears, feels, &c. or thinks, than by any discourse of mine. Whoever reflects on what passes in his own mind, cannot miss it; and if he does not reflect, all the words in the world cannot make him have any notion of it.
Стр. 103 - I will not here examine: it suffices to take notice that this is one of the operations that the mind may reflect on and observe in itself. It is of that consequence to its other knowledge, that so far as this faculty is in itself dull, or not rightly made use of for the distinguishing one thing from another, so far our notions are confused, and our reason and judgment disturbed or misled.
Стр. 405 - What books do you read, and how do you employ your time and your pen ? Except some professed scholars, I have often observed that women in general read much more than men ; but, for want of a plan, a method, a fixed object, their reading is of little benefit to themselves or others.
Стр. 314 - The most pleasing arts of human invention are altogether directed to their pursuit : and even the necessary arts are exalted into dignity, by the genius that can unite beauty with use.
Стр. 4 - Not only the actions, but even the opinions of men may sometimes give light into the frame of the human mind. The opinions of men may be considered as the effects of their intellectual powers, as their actions are the effects of their active principles. Even the prejudices and errors of mankind, when they are general, must have some cause no less general ; the discovery of which will throw some light upon the frame of the human understanding.
Стр. 351 - True being, and an intellectual world The same this hour and ever. Thence he deems Of his own lot ; above the painted shapes That fleeting move o'er this terrestrial scene Looks up ; beyond the adamantine gates Of death expatiates; as his birthright claims Inheritance in all the works of God ; 147 Prepares for endless time his plan of life, And counts the universe itself his home.
Стр. 8 - ... direct it to proper objects; to exercise their ingenuity and invention; to cultivate in their minds a turn for speculation, and at the same time preserve their attention alive to the objects around them; to awaken their sensibilities to the beauties of nature, and to inspire them with a relish for intellectual enjoyment; — these form but a part of the business of education.
Стр. 3 - We take it for granted, therefore, that, by attentive reflection, a man may have a clear and certain knowledge of the operations of his own mind ; a knowledge no less clear and certain, than that which he has of an external object when it is set before his eyes.
Стр. 8 - ... invention ; to cultivate in their minds a turn for speculation, and at the same time preserve their attention alive to the objects around them ; to awaken their sensibilities to the beauties of nature, and to inspire them with a relish "for intellectual enjoyment ; — these form but a part of the business of education ; and yet the execution even of this part requires an acquaintance with the general principles of our nature, which seldom falls to the share of those to whom the instruction of...
