Stran 209 - My father's wife, ie my step-daughter, had also a son ; he was, of course, my brother, and in the meantime my grandchild, for he was the son of my daughter. My wife was my grandmother, because she was my mother's mother. I was my wife's husband and grandchild at the same time. And as the husband of a person's grandmother is his grandfather, I was my own grandfather.
Stran 156 - The more I advanced in the study of American society, the more I perceived that the equality of conditions is the fundamental fact from which all others seem to be derived, and the central point at which all my observations constantly terminated.
Stran 79 - In no country in the world has the principle of association been more successfully used or applied to a greater multitude of objects than in America.
Stran 97 - I know of no country in which there is so little independence of mind and real freedom of discussion as in America.
Stran 25 - His stature is noble and lofty, he is well made, and exactly proportioned ; his physiognomy mild and agreeable, but such as to render it impossible to speak particularly of any of his features, so that in quitting him, you have only the recollection of a fine face.

One of his first experiences was in knocking at the door of an acquaintance; Mr. Janson asked the domestic who opened to him, "Is your master at home?
Stran 15 - A democracy is scarcely tolerable at any period of national history. Its omens are always sinister, and its powers are unpropitious. With all the lights of experience blazing before our eyes, it is impossible not to discern the futility of this form of government.
Stran 19 - Sir, they are a race of convicts, and ought to be thankful 'for anything we allow them short of hanging.
Stran 158 - Whoever has inhabited the United States must have perceived that in those parts of the Union in which the Negroes are no longer slaves they have in no wise drawn nearer to the whites. On the contrary, the prejudice of race appears to be stronger in the states that have abolished slavery than in those where it still exists; and nowhere is it so intolerant as in those states where servitude has never been known.
