Strana 21 - Heaven! Of all the cants which are canted in this canting world — though the cant of hypocrites may be the worst — the cant of criticism is the most tormenting!
Strana 17 - I" KNOW you Lawyers can with ease Twist words and meanings as you please ; That language, by your skill made pliant, Will bend to favour ev'ry client ; That 'tis the fee directs the sense To make out either side's pretence. When you peruse the clearest case, You see it with a double face : For scepticism's your profession ; You hold there's doubt in all expression.
Strana 19 - Be but great, With praise or infamy leave that to fate; Get place and wealth, if possible, with grace; If not, by any means get wealth and place~
Strana 13 - We thus learn that man is descended from a hairy quadruped, furnished with a tail and pointed ears, probably arboreal in its habits, and an inhabitant of the Old World.
Strana 19 - Wolves shall succeed for teachers, grievous wolves, Who all the sacred mysteries of Heaven To their own vile advantages shall turn Of lucre and ambition ; and the truth With superstitions and traditions taint, Left only in those written records pure, Though not but by the Spirit understood.
Strana 13 - By considering the embryological structure of man — the homologies which he presents with the lower animals — the rudiments which he retains and the reversions to which he is liable — we can partly recall in imagination the former condition of our early progenitors; and can approximately place them in their proper place in the zoological series.
Strana 17 - And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
Strana 13 - In the dim obscurity of the past we can see that the early progenitor of all the Vertebrata must have been an aquatic animal, provided with branchiae, with the two sexes united in the same individual, and with the most important organs of the body (such as the brain and heart) imperfectly developed. This animal seems to have been more like the larvae of our existing marine Ascidians than any other known form.
Strana 12 - Thus, whatever system of organs be studied, the comparison of their modifications in the ape series leads to one and the same result — that the structural differences which separate Man from the Gorilla and the Chimpanzee are not so great as those which separate the Gorilla from the lower apes.
Strana 13 - Quadrumana, as surely as the still more ancient progenitor of the old and new world monkeys. The Quadrumana, and all the higher mammals are probably derived from an ancient marsupial animal, and this through a long series of diversified forms, from some amphibian-like creature, and this again from some fishlike animal.
