Strana 161 - Gentlemen, what does this mean ? Chops and Tomato Sauce, Yours Pickwick. Chops! gracious heavens ! and tomato sauce ! Gentlemen, is the happiness of a sensitive and confiding female to be trifled away by such shallow artifices as these? The next has no date whatever, which is in itself suspicious ; "Dear Mrs. B. I shall not be at home till to-morrow, slow coach," And then follows this very remarkable expression: "don't trouble yourself about the warming-pan.
Strana 450 - The bread of the needy is their life: he that defraudeth him thereof is a man of blood. He that taketh away his neighbour's living slayeth him; and he that defraudeth the labourer of his hire is a bloodshedder.
Strana 136 - I do not see what is rightly to hinder us from calling it Amerige or America, ie, the land of Americus, after its discoverer Americus, a man of sagacious mind, since both Europe and Asia have got their names from women.
Strana 477 - His was one of those few lives that are beyond biography, and require a history to be written in order to illustrate them. His career affords, perhaps, a solitary instance of a man who, being neither a conqueror, a discoverer, nor an inventor, has, by the pure force of benevolence, become so notable a figure, that large portions of history cannot be written, or at least cannot be understood, without the narrative of his deeds and efforts being made one of the principal threads upon which the history...
Strana 1 - But in truth the first fateful note that heralded the coming English supremacy was sounded when John Cabot's tiny craft sailed out from the Bristol channel on a bright May morning of 1497.
Strana 563 - Strictly speaking these descriptions of the "suffering servant of Yahweh" cannot be said to embody the true and beautiful conception that " the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.
Strana 482 - In contemplating such a life as that of Las Casas, all words of eulogy seem weak and frivolous. The historian can only bow in reverent awe before a figure which is in some respects the most beautiful and sublime in the annals of Christianity since the Apostolic age.
Strana 162 - Strange, that the New World should have no better luck, — that broad America must wear the name of a thief. Amerigo Vespucci, the pickle-dealer at Seville, who went out, in 1499, a subaltern with Hojeda, and whose highest naval rank was boatswain's mate in an expedition that never sailed, managed in this lying world to supplant Columbus, and baptize half the earth with his own dishonest name.
Strana 458 - When the work of Las Casas is deeply considered, we cannot make him anything else but an antagonist of human slavery in all its forms, and the mightiest and most effective antagonist, withal, that has ever lived. Subtract his glorious life from the history of the past, and we might still be waiting, sick with hope deferred, for a Wilberforce, a Garrison, and a Lincoln.
Strana 450 - The most High is not pleased with the offerings of the wicked; Neither is he pacified for sin by the multitude of sacrifices.
