There are still in most American tongues large classes of words, such as the parts of the body and terms of kinship, which cannot stand alone. One would expect him to be quite as much in the clouds as the automaton chess-player, or the last new Opera-singer.

With respect to indications of early genius for particular things, I will just mention, that I myself know an instance of a little boy, who could catch the hardest tunes, when between two and three years old, without any assistance but hearing them played on a hand-organ in the street; and who followed the exquisite pieces of Mozart, played to him for the first time, so as to fall in like an echo at the close. The tickling must fit in with a particular mood, the state of mind which makes enjoyment of fun not only possible but welcome. The way to secure success, is to be more anxious about obtaining than about deserving it; the surest hindrance to it is to have too high a standard of refinement in our own minds, or too high an opinion of the discernment of the public.

One would think this alone decisive against his book. The most irreconcileable disappointments are perhaps those which arise from our obtaining all we wish. The Tories know their enemies: the People do not know their friends. The man who has lost his leg by a cannon shot, and who, the moment after, speaks and acts with his usual coolness and tranquillity, as he exerts a much higher degree of self-command, so he naturally feels a much higher degree of self-approbation. Whither thou goest, There go I. Not so in the dearth of life and spirit, in the drossy, dry, material texture, the clear complexions and fair hair of the Saxon races, where the puncture of an insect’s sting is a solution of their personal identity, and the idea of life attached to and courting an intimacy with them in spite of themselves, naturally produces all the revulsions of the most violent antipathy and nearly drives them out of their wits. The vital importance attached to this sentiment renders these beautiful words especially adapted to point out the exceeding value of language as a true autobiography of nations.” This quotation is from an essay by a thoughtful writer, Dr. Mankind are endowed with a desire of those ends, and an aversion to the contrary; with a love of life, and a dread of dissolution; with a desire of the continuance and perpetuity of the species, and with an aversion to the thoughts of its entire extinction. These are the artificial shell-heaps which are found along the shores of both oceans and of many rivers in both North and South America.

When self-love and reason were both excluded, it did not occur to him that there was any other known faculty of the mind which could in any respect answer this purpose. Now the doctrine of vibration appears absolutely to exclude the possibility of the union of all these into one _associated_ idea, because as the whole of that principle is founded on the greater ease and certainty with which one local impression is supposed to pass into the seat of the next, and the greater force with which it acts there than it can do farther off, the idea of a visible object can never run into the notion of a sound, nor _vice versa_, these impressions being of course conveyed along different nerves to different and very remote parts of the brain.

Accordingly, Mr. The Charles Louis Philippes of English literature are never done with, because there is no one to kill their reputations; we still hear that George Meredith is a master of prose, or even a profound philosopher.

It is said, that after he had obtained a small vicarage, although not an immoral man, he was gay and expensive in his habits. Footnote 4: As a singular example of steadiness of nerves, Mr. —– CHAP. Thus, Rome and Athens were two cities set on a hill, that could not be hid, and that every where meet the retrospective eye of history. The embarrassment which he occasioned to those who spoke to him, flattered that secret satisfaction with which he felt his own superiority. Of course, when we get down to details there is difficulty or even impossibility in deciding whether or not a given man is mal-employed–we may leave out of consideration here all persons engaged in criminal occupations.

As a matter of fact, both the Church and the library are the greatest and most valuable means of publicity that we have. In some of the Greek tragedies there is an attempt to excite compassion, by the representation of the agonies of bodily pain. There was merely impish playfulness in the act of snatching off her grandmother’s spectacles and even her cap, with full accompaniment of laughter, in the twenty-second month when lifted to say good-night. What he said, doubtless, was “_Est-il heureux?_” We translate _heureux_ in two ways, “happy” and “fortunate”, but they are really the same, for happy means “of good hap”, or good fortune.

If any one came to request the repayment of a loan from him, he borrowed more. What is told us of the laughter of the deities is always, perhaps, a little difficult to reconcile with their remote altitude and the detachment of spirit which seems proper to this; being, either in its mocking virulence, or {397} in its good-natured familiarity, rather too suggestive of a close attachment to our race; for which reason, by the way, philosophers, if they wish to soar god-wards and still to keep a laughing down-glance on their fellows, should beware lest they soar too high. Few studies of American languages go beyond this material or lexicographic limit; but in truth these are merely the externalities of a tongue, and have nothing to do with linguistic science proper.

In the fall from royal favour to disgrace, from power to insignificancy, from riches to poverty, from liberty to confinement, from strong health to some, lingering, chronical, and perhaps incurable disease, the man who struggles the least, who most easily and readily acquiesces in the fortune which has fallen to him, very soon recovers his usual and natural tranquillity, and surveys the most disagreeable circumstances of his actual situation in the same light, or, perhaps, in a much less unfavourable light, than that in which the most indifferent spectator is disposed to survey them. In this the indictment sets forth that after the body had been found in a pond and an autopsy had been performed by a surgeon, “James Row, merchant, having lifted the left side of Sir James, his head and shoulder, and the said Philip the right side, his father’s body, though carefully cleaned, as said is, did (according to God’s usual mode of discovering murders), blood afresh upon him and defiled all his hands, which struck him with such a terror that he immediately let his father’s head and body fall with violence and fled from the body and in consternation and confusion cryed Lord have mercy upon me! An even more important manifestation of what I have called socialization is the extension of occupation groups to which the library is giving special attention and special service. It is hardly needful to say that disorder, topsy-turvyness, confusions of _role_, and, generally, inversions of normal relations, form an essential feature of the spectacle.

The answer is simple, for the man clearly violated his duty to his country in the first place by vowing he would deprive his country of his services should they be required, a right which no country has ever forsworn and which is considered the natural return due for free citizenship and state protection; these conditions are presumed to be accepted with the benefits of citizenship and protection of person and property; his first violation of duty towards his country will therefore not absolve him of a second. There are always three or four points on which the literary novice at his first outset in life fancies he can enlighten every company, and bear down all opposition: but he is cured of this Quixotic and pugnacious spirit, as he goes more into the world, where he finds that there are other opinions and other pretensions to be adjusted besides his own.
