Seite 100 - Upon reading this book, we find it full of prodigies' and miracles. It gives an account of a state of the world and of human nature entirely different from the present : Of our fall from that state : Of the age of man, extended to near a thousand years : Of the destruction of the world by a deluge...
Seite 103 - O, Woman ! in our hours of ease, Uncertain, coy, and hard to please, And variable as the shade By the light quivering aspen made ; there ?" — When pain and anguish wring the brow, A ministering angel thou...
Seite 23 - Let your women keep silence in the churches : for it is not permitted unto them to speak ; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. 35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home ; for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
Seite 507 - ... used or occupied within the realm of England or Wales; except he shall have been brought up therein seven years at the least as an apprentice...
Seite 313 - As it rarely happens that a man is fit to plead his own cause, lawyers are a class of the community who, by study and experience, have acquired the art and power of arranging evidence, and of applying to the points at issue what the law has settled. A lawyer is to do for his client all that his client might fairly do for himself, if he could.
Seite 100 - I desire any one to lay his hand upon his heart, and after a serious consideration declare whether he thinks that the falsehood of such a book, supported by such a testimony, would be more extraordinary and miraculous than all the miracles it relates ; which is, however, necessary to make it be received, according to the measures of probability above established.

" Having made known without reserve the sentiments of the Prince Regent, with respect to a point on which it is necessary to have a full understanding, previous to any ulterior discussion, I shall adhere to...
Seite 313 - a lawyer has no business with the justice or injustice of the cause which he undertakes, unless his client asks his opinion, and then he is bound to give it honestly. The justice or injustice of the cause is to be decided by the judge. Consider, sir; what is the purpose of courts of justice? It is that every man may have his cause fairly tried by men appointed to try causes. A lawyer is not to tell what he knows to be a lie...
Seite 313 - There must always be some advantage, on one side or other ; and it is better that advantage should be had by talents than by chance. If lawyers were to undertake no causes till they were sure they were just, a man might be precluded altogether from a trial of his claim, though, were it judicially examined, it might be found a very just claim.
Seite 165 - I am informed that Marshal Marmont is badly wounded, and has lost one of his arms ; and that four general officers have been killed, and several wounded. Such an advantage could not have been acquired without material loss on our side ; but it certainly has not been of a magnitude to distress the army or to cripple its operations.
