Two companies are simply a nuisance, involving duplication of plant with no resulting convenience. I recall several offers of lots in barren and unoccupied spots–one in an undeveloped region whose owner hoped to make it a residence park and another in the middle of a flourishing cornfield, whose owner considered it an ideal spot for a branch library–at least after he had sold off a sufficient number of building lots on the strength of his generous gift. The reason is, he _dare_ not. At that name I pause, and must be excused if I consecrate to him a _petit souvenir_ in my best manner; for he was Fancy’s child. ‘Is it the same in pictures?’ I confess it is, with all but those from Titian’s hand.

Whatever was valuable in the former systems, which was at all consistent with their general principles, they seem to have consolidated into their own. It is difficult to bring system to bear upon it at all, and yet its preservation is of the very highest importance of all, because without it the librarian cannot do the work in his community that every good librarian is trying to do.

A touch is always an attack, and has, so to speak, to be {62} condoned. But does it? But the attention of different men, and even of the same man at different times, is often very unequally divided between them; and is sometimes principally directed towards the one, and sometimes towards the other. To detect it in another, as already noted, requires more than a brief acquaintance. As the World grew more Populous, and Mens Necessities whetted their Inventions, so it increas’d their Jealousy, and sharpen’d their Tyranny over us, till by degrees, it came to that height of Severity, I may say Cruelty, it is now at in all the Eastern parts of the World, where the Women, like our Negroes in our Western Plantations, are born slaves, and live Prisoners all their Lives. The least swerving from the point of view of comedy, a turn of the mental “eye-glass,” would spoil all. His success is due to something that I can not detect; in fact, he seems to me rather an ordinary young man. We must depend on the brief and unsatisfactory statements of the early Spanish writers, and on what little modern research has accomplished, for means to form a correct opinion; and there is at present a justifiable discrepancy of opinion about it among those who have given the subject most attention. The warm water has been sometimes known to reach the Bay of Biscay, still retaining five degrees of temperature above that of the adjoining ocean; and a branch of the gulf current drifts fruits, plants, and wood, the produce of America and the West Indies, to the shores of Ireland and the Hebrides. Its business is to help others. One copy will serve the needs of the whole town. All these are objects which he cannot easily see, which poetry research paper introduction naturally he does not look at, and with regard to which he is provided with no mirror which can present them to his view. She alone can present to them the view of another world; a world of more candour, humanity, and justice, than the present; where their {109} innocence is in due time to be declared, and their virtue to be finally rewarded: and the same great principle which can alone strike terror into triumphant vice, affords the only effectual consolation to disgraced and insulted innocence. In the third place, this man stands for a type, an English type. It looks like it; and the Government give them ‘good _?illades_’—Mr. {156a} His temperament is phlegmatic, and he has a heavy, dull look. This unconscious register of ancestral experience, about which we shall have more to say in another chapter, is here adduced as being an additional factor which must have considerable bearing on the nature of _subjective_ impulses. The natural resentment of the man who discerns an attempt to convert him was well expressed in a witty speech in the House of Commons during a debate on the relations between Press and Government. It is not easy to keep up a conversation with women in company.

The early popular “farce” of the Greeks, with its mocking and ironical speeches, and the satirical songs of the Middle Ages were apparently pieces of rollicking fun, like the comedy of Aristophanes, in which the satirical note was half-drowned in buffoonish laughter. Even the eye of childhood is dazzled and delighted with the polished splendour of the jewellers’ shops, the neatness of the turnery ware, the festoons of artificial flowers, the confectionery, the chemists’ shops, the lamps, the horses, the carriages, the sedan-chairs: to this was formerly added a set of traditional associations—Whittington and his Cat, Guy Faux and the Gunpowder Treason, the Fire and the Plague of London, and the Heads of the Scotch Rebels that were stuck on Temple Bar in 1745. The gossips in country-towns, also, who study human nature, not merely in the history of the individual, but in the genealogy of the race, know the comparative anatomy of the minds of a whole neighbourhood to a tittle, where to look for marks and defects,—explain a vulgarity by a cross in the breed, or a foppish air in a young tradesman by his grandmother’s marriage with a dancing-master, and are the only practical conjurors and expert decypherers of the determinate lines of true or supposititious character. _Geologic_, where its position in the geologic horizons is to be determined, and the influence upon it of the physical geography of the continent.

The graceless brothers of the deceased disputed the bequest, poetry research paper introduction and offered to make good their claim to the estate by the requisite number of oaths. Thus he speaks of being “stabbed” {39} with laughter, of laughing oneself “into stitches”—an experience which Milton probably had in mind when he wrote of “laughter holding both his sides”—of the heart being almost broken “with extreme laughing” and of laughing oneself “to death”.[23] The American returns speak of a whole Iliad of evil after-effects: fatigue, weakness, sadness, giddiness, breathlessness and so forth.

My attention being generally altogether occupied about the tangible and represented, and not at all about the visible and representing objects, my careless fancy bestows upon the latter a proportion which does not in the least belong to them, but which belongs altogether to the former. In the same way receipts from fines have become a very considerable source of income in large libraries, and are not to be neglected even in small ones.

Lumps of light hung upon his pencil and fell upon his canvas like dew-drops: the shadowy veil was drawn over his back-grounds by the dull, obtuse finger of night, making darkness visible by still greater darkness that could only be felt! To pretend to rescue the system of any of those ante-Socratic sages, from that oblivion which at present covers them all, would be a vain and useless attempt. Fox, what cemented an immediate intimacy between them was the following circumstance. The presence of this new psychical factor is seen in the alteration of the laughing sounds themselves. The person who is deliberately guilty of a disgraceful action, we may lay it down, I believe, as a general rule, can seldom have much sense of the disgrace; and the person who is habitually guilty of it, can scarce ever have any. Things of so fleeting a nature can never be the objects of science, or of any steady or permanent judgment. But not many people are capable of discovering for themselves the beauty which is only found after labour; and Jonson’s industrious readers have been those whose interest was historical and curious, and those who have thought that in discovering the historical and curious interest they had discovered the artistic value as well.

Our sense of the horror and dreadful atrocity of such conduct, the delight which we poetry research paper introduction take in hearing that it was properly punished, the indignation which we feel when it escapes this due retaliation, our whole sense and feeling, in short, of its ill desert, of the propriety and fitness of inflicting evil upon the person who is guilty of it, and of making him grieve in his turn, arises from the sympathetic indignation which naturally boils up in the breast of the spectator, whenever he thoroughly brings home to himself the case of the sufferer.[2] [Footnote 2: To ascribe in this manner our natural sense of the ill desert of human actions to a sympathy with the resentment of the sufferer, may seem, to the greater part of the people, to be a degradation of that sentiment. What can be added to the happiness of the man who is in health, who is out of debt, and has a clear conscience? In short, to attempt accounting at all for the nature of consciousness from the proximity of different impressions, or of their fluxional parts to each other in the brain seems no less absurd than it would be to imagine that by placing a number of persons together in a line we should produce in them an immediate consciousness and perfect knowledge of what was passing in each other’s minds. These languages occupied Humboldt’s attention earnestly and for many years. These questions, of course, cannot receive a general answer; they must be decided differently in different cases, but at least we may agree on the type of question that it is admissible to answer at all and on the degree of detail to which it is permissible to go in stating a requirement.

I believe this is coming to be recognized and that in the future library the books will be on or near the walls. And a critic would not use so careless a phrase as “Tasso’s masterpiece.” The essay on Congreve does not add much to our understanding: And so he set upon the boards a set of men and women of quick brains and cynical humours, who talked with the brilliance and rapidity wherewith the finished swordsman fences. If Pindar bores us, we admit it; we are not certain that Sappho was _very_ much greater than Catullus; we hold various opinions about Vergil; and we think more highly of Petronius than our grandfathers did. Therefore the importance and authenticity of Landa’s alphabet are, I think, vindicated by this attempt to treat it as a “fabrication.”[232] Landa also gives some interesting details about their books.

There has been nothing of late years to distinguish his case from many old ones, whose minds have sunk into the torpid state, except it be, which is scarcely worthy of notice, that he has sometimes stood on his head to say his prayers; sometimes spit in his pocket; and, when provoked, used indecent language; otherwise his state of mind has not, for many years, exhibited any observable alteration. The common way of tickling a child is by running the fingers with discontinuous contact over the skin. His pictures are also like himself, with eye-balls of stone stuck in rims of tin, and muscles twisted together like ropes or wires. Early in the thirteenth century a case is related in which a peasant to revenge himself on a neighbor employed a vagabond monk to burn the house of the latter. As it is, he tolerates his _idle nonsense_: there is a link of friendship in mutual political servility; and besides, he has a fellow-feeling with him, as one of those writers of whose merits the world have not been fully sensible. What seems, however, to have been borrowed from them, shall sometimes be marked as we go along.
