... absence of mind was so extreme, that I lacked the ability of protecting myself against accident, in cases the most simple and ordinary.

Though it is not yet accepted as a form of orthodox Hinduism, it seems probable that concessions on ...

It was made by him to Miron, his physician and confidential servant in Cracow, when he ruled there later as King of Poland, under circumstances which place it beyond suspicion of being intended to serve ulterior aims. For partial corroboration, and for other details of the massacre itself, we have the narratives, among others, of Sully, who was then a young man in the train of the King of Navarre, and of Lusignan, a gentleman of the Admiral's household. We shall closely follow these in our reconstruction of the event and ...

But there is a further question, to which the book of Job gives no answer; and to which indeed all the Old Testament gives but a partial answer.

When, as from time to time happens, a child is born with some powers of articulation, he is set apart, and trained to talk in the interpreters' college. Of course the partial atrophy of the vocal organs, from which even the best interpreters suffer, renders many of the sounds of language impossible for them. None, for instance, can pronounce v, f, or s; and as to the sound represented by th, it is five generations since the last interpreter lived who could ...

We declare war because we want to fight for humanity, international law and against a national enemy. It is not because we are partial towards the Entente or against Germany or Austria.

It proved her ruin, she cast herself into the sea, and suffered the partial metamorphosis.

This has been in progress of fulfilment from the days of Martin Luther, since which her control of the ten kingdoms has been only limited and partial.
