But if, as appears to be the case, sympathy is strictly an instinct, its exercise would give direct pleasure, in the same manner as the exercise, as before remarked, of almost every other instinct.) But I cannot see how this view explains the fact that sympathy is excited, in an immeasurably stronger degree, by a beloved, than by an indifferent person. The mere sight of suffering, independently ...

Two of our frigates had been previously so placed as to serve as beacons to direct the course of the fire-ships.

A straight line drawn from the altar of sacrifice would have bisected the altar of incense as it passed into the mercy-seat and the glory.

Dear brother, we shall never lift the veil, and stand in 'the secret place of the Most High,' unless we take the altar of incense ...

... a bad speculation for a publisher. Your work will sell or it will not sell; and therein, for them, lies the whole question. A book means so much capital to risk, and the better the book, the less likely it is to sell. A man of talent rises above the level of ordinary heads; his success varies in direct ratio with the time required for his work to be appreciated. And no publisher wants to wait. To-day's book must be sold by to-morrow. Acting on this system, publishers and booksellers do not care to take real literature, books that ...

And they predict that this trend will continue, resulting in a form of socialism or communism distinctly different from that found in any other country. Another ...

When presbyteries came to be set up, they are sometimes designated by the name of eldership, and ...
