الصفحة 213 - ... lower. It is not a frozen ocean, but a frozen torrent. Its origin or fountain is in the ramifications of the higher valleys and gorges, which descend amongst the mountains perpetually snow-clad. But what gives to a glacier its most peculiar and characteristic feature is, that it does not belong exclusively or necessarily to the snowy region already mentioned.
الصفحة 175 - SLY Beelzebub took all occasions To try Job's constancy and patience. He took his honor, took his health ; He took his children, took his wealth, His servants, oxen, horses, cows — But cunning Satan did not take his spouse. But Heaven, that brings out good from evil, And loves to disappoint the devil, Had predetermined to restore Twofold all he had before; His servants, horses, oxen, cows — Short-sighted devil, not to take his spouse!
الصفحة 145 - Hast thou ever raised thy mind to the consideration of EXISTENCE, in and by itself, as the mere act of existing? Hast thou ever said to thyself thoughtfully, IT is! heedless in that moment, whether it were a man before thee, or a flower, or a grain of sand ? Without reference, in short, to this or that particular mode or form of existence? If thou hast indeed attained to this, thou wilt have felt the presence of a mystery, which must have fixed thy spirit in awe and wonder.
الصفحة 146 - ... general point of contact ; and that a ship following always the same oblique course with respect to the meridian, — for example, sailing north-eastwards, — would continue perpetually to approach the pole without ever completely reaching it. But when we inquire into the truth of the old maxim of the schools, that all matter is infinitely divisible, we are by no means able to decide so positively. Newton observes that it is doubtful whether any human means may be sufficient to separate the...
الصفحة 42 - ... the world which we inhabit is composed of the materials, not of the earth which was the immediate predecessor of the present, but of the earth which, in ascending from the present, we consider as the third, and which had preceded the land that was above the surface of the sea, while our present land was yet beneath the water of the ocean.
الصفحة 174 - A quibble is the golden apple for which he will always turn aside from his career or stoop from his elevation. A quibble, poor and barren as it is, gave him such delight that he was content to purchase it by the sacrifice of reason, propriety, and truth. A quibble was to him the fatal Cleopatra for which he lost the world and was content to lose it.
الصفحة 152 - tongues in trees," but science alone can interpret their mysterious whispers, and in this consists its poetry. To rest content with the bare enunciation of a truth, is to perform but one half of a task. As each atom of matter is involved in an atmosphere of properties and powers, which unites it to every mass of the universe, so each truth, however- common it may be, is surrounded by impulses which, being awakened, pass from soul to soul like musical undulations, and which will be repeated through...
الصفحة 27 - As this rope is raised up and down over the wheel, its tortion gives to the bar of iron a circular motion, sufficient to vary the place of the cutting chisel at each descent. When the chamber is full, the whole apparatus is raised quickly to the surface to be unloaded, and is again let down by the action of the same wheel. This process has long been practised in China, from whence the report of its use has been brought to Europe.
الصفحة 148 - ... motion or rest unless disturbed by some external cause. Yet in reality this contradiction is only apparent. Force being the cause, and motion the effect produced by it on matter, to say that matter is inert, or has inertia, as it is termed, is only to say that the cause is expended in producing its effect, and that the same cause cannot (without renewal) produce double or triple its own proper effect. In this point of view, equilibrium may be conceived as a continual production of two opposite...
الصفحة 121 - The explosion tore off one of the heads, bc, of the cylinder, projecting the other parts of the boiler in an opposite direction, carrying with them for a portion of the distance, the iron cylinder forming the furnace, and scattering the fuel in every direction. The report attending the explosion resembled that from a small mortar...
