Pagina 77 - For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs : but the land whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven...
Pagina 477 - Sir, if you wish to have a just notion of the magnitude of this city, you must not be satisfied with seeing its great streets and squares, but must survey the innumerable little lanes and courts. It is not in the showy evolutions of buildings, but in the multiplicity of human habitations which are crowded together, that the wonderful immensity of London consists."— I have often amused myself with thinking how different a place London is to different people.
Pagina 474 - All accounts of gallantry, pleasure, and entertainment shall be under the article of White's Chocolate-house; poetry, under that of Will's Coffee-house; learning, under the title of Grecian; foreign and domestic news you will have from St James's Coffee-house; and what else I shall on any other subject offer, shall be dated from my own apartment.
Pagina 311 - Nascondendo la faccia Tra le ginocchia, e piange. Piangi, che ben hai donde, Italia mia, Le genti a vincer nata E nella fausta sorte e nella ria. Se fosser gli occhi tuoi due fonti vive, Mai non potrebbe il pianto Adeguarsi al tuo danno ed allo scorno; Che fosti donna, or sei povera ancella.

It was three o'clock before we got home.
Pagina 477 - I have often amused myself with thinking how different a place London is to different people. They whose narrow minds are contracted to the consideration of some one particular pursuit, view it only through that medium. A politician thinks of it merely as the seat of Government in its different departments ; a grazier as a vast, market for cattle ; a mercantile man as a place where a prodigious deal of business is done upon 'Change ; a dramatic enthusiast as the grand scene of theatrical entertainments;...
Pagina 150 - A capital therefore employed in the home trade will sometimes make twelve operations, or be sent out and returned twelve times, before a capital employed in the foreign trade of consumption has made one. If the capitals are equal therefore, the one will give four and twenty times more encouragement and support to the industry of the country than the other.
Pagina 477 - WHEN I consider this great city in its several quarters and divisions, I look upon it as an aggregate of various nations, distinguished from each other by their respective customs, manners, and interests.
Pagina 326 - If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me.
Pagina 150 - The first is, when some particular sort of industry is necessary for the defence of the country. The defence of Great Britain, for example, depends very much upon the number of its sailors and shipping. The act of navigation, therefore, very properly endeavours to give the sailors and shipping of Great Britain the monopoly of the trade of their own country, in some cases...
