Strana 81 - What does he therefore, but resolves to give over toiling, and to find himself out some factor, to whose care and credit he may commit the whole managing of his religious affairs; some divine of note and estimation that must be. To him he adheres, resigns the whole warehouse of his religion, with all the locks and...
Strana 58 - In all other respects my friend is neither a fool nor a madman, and can talk very rationally upon any rational subject. But such is the inconsistency both of the human mind and the human heart, that one must not form a general judgment of either, from one glaring error, or one shining excellence.

Strana 211 - ... of the several counties of the united kingdom. That beautiful part of our species once engrossed my cares ; they still share them : I have been exceedingly affected all the summer with the thoughts * of their captivity, and have felt a sympathetic grief for them.
Strana 108 - ... all behind him, and to overtake, or pafs by, all who are before him : every one is flying from his inferiors, in purfuit of his fuperiors who fly from Him with equal alacrity.
Strana 123 - Bologna sausages, and another the dried tongues he had eaten, was some mitigation of his pain.
