Seite 131 - Ditch-deliver'd by a drab, Make the gruel thick and slab.' Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,* For the ingredients of our cauldron.
Seite 265 - I know this well, that if one thousand, if one hundred, if ten men whom I could name, — if ten honest men only, — ay, if one HONEST man, in this State of Massachusetts, ceasing to hold slaves, were actually to withdraw from this copartnership, and be locked up in the county jail therefor, it would be the abolition of slavery in America. For it matters not how small the beginning may seem to be : what is once well done is done forever.
Seite 265 - Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.

Seite 14 - Now that moral injunctions are losing the authority given by their supposed sacred origin, the secularization of morals is becoming imperative. Few things can happen more disastrous than the decay and death of a regulative system no longer fit, before another and fitter regulative system has grown up to replace it.
