Stran 594 - In the discussions to which this interest has given rise, and in the arrangements by which they may terminate, the occasion has been judged proper for asserting as a principle in which the rights, and interests of the United States are involved, that the American continents, by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers.
Stran 359 - Methinks I should know you, and know this man; Yet I am doubtful: for I am mainly ignorant What place this is; and all the skill I have Remembers not these garments; nor I know not Where I did lodge last night.
Stran 590 - We think, therefore, that treaties stipulating for permanent rights and general arrangements, and professing to aim at perpetuity, and to deal with the case of war as well as of peace, do not cease on the occurrence of war, but are, at most, only suspended while it lasts ; and unless they are waived by the parties, or new and repugnant stipulations are made, they revive in their operation at the return of peace.
Stran 267 - Call ye that a Society,' cries he again, ' where there is no ' longer any Social Idea extant ; not so much as the Idea ' of a common Home, but only of a common over-crowded ' Lodging-house ? Where each, isolated, regardless of his ' neighbour, turned against his neighbour, clutches what ' he can get, and cries
Stran 644 - God, when He gave the world in common to all mankind, commanded man also to labour, and the penury of his condition required it of him. God and his reason commanded him to subdue the earth...
Stran 99 - These conclusions, deduced from the laws of human nature, are in entire accordance with the general facts of history. Every considerable change historically known to us in the condition of any portion of mankind, has been preceded by a change, of proportional extent, in the state of their knowledge, or in their prevalent beliefs. As between any given state of speculation, and the correlative state of everything else, it was almost always the former which first showed itself; though the effects, no...
Stran 277 - Hp, and gradually becomes from day to day the watchword of all labours? We thirst for unity : we seek it in a new and larger expression of the mutual responsibility of all men towards each other,— the indissoluble co-partnery of all generations and all individuals in the human race. We begin to comprehend those beautiful words of St. Paul (Romans sii. 5), ' We being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
Stran 15 - Hail then, to thee, thou only true Church which art alone the way of Life, and in whose tabernacle alone there is shelter from all this confusion of tongues. In the shadow of thy sacred Mysteries, let my soul henceforth repose, remote alike from the infidel who scoffs at their darkness, and the rash believer who vainly would pry into its recesses, saying to both, in the language of St.
Stran 278 - He sympathises with all men, but it is with the separate life of each, and not with their collective life. He readily looks at every man as the representative, the incarnation in a manner, of an idea: he does not believe in a "supreme idea, represented progressively by the development of mankind taken as a whole.
Stran 99 - ... powerful propensities, which consists in subordinating them to a common system of opinions. The degree of this subordination is the measure of the completeness of the social union, and the nature of the common opinions determines its kind. But in order that mankind should conform their actions to any set of opinions, these opinions must exist, must be believed by them. And thus, the state of the speculative faculties, the character of the propositions assented to by the intellect...
