Stran 546 - Which would be worn now in their newest gloss, Not cast aside so soon. Lady M. Was the hope drunk Wherein you dress'd yourself? hath it slept since, And wakes it now, to look so green and pale At what it did so freely ? From this time Such I account thy love. Art thou...
Stran 728 - He called upon the women to advise pastors to attend to their own affairs, and even denounced the archbishop for allowing himself to become the tool of coolie protectors. Resolutions were passed that the party recognized no distinction of religious creeds, but united on one rule of faith alone; that resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.

Stran 745 - As I said before, when a society has entered on this downward progress, either civilization or liberty must perish.

Stran 745 - Either some Caesar or Napoleon will seize the reins of government with a strong hand, or your republic will be as fearfully plundered and laid waste by barbarians in the twentieth century as the Roman Empire was in the fifth, with this difference, that the Huns and Vandals who ravaged the Roman Empire came from without, and that your Huns and Vandals will have been engendered within your own country by your own institutions.
Stran 745 - Legislature will be chosen? On one side is a statesman preaching patience, respect for vested rights, strict observance of public faith. On the other is a demagogue ranting about the tyranny of capitalists and usurers, and asking why anybody should be permitted to drink Champagne and to ride in a carriage, while thousands of honest folks are in want of necessaries.
Stran 112 - Citizens whose names are hereunto attached do unite themselves into an association for. the maintenance of the peace and good order of Society and the preservation of the lives and property of the Citizens of San Francisco...
Stran 684 - At the same time, insurrections are generally wrong ; revolutions are always right. An insurrection is too often the mad and passionate effort of ignorant persons, who are impatient under some immediate injury, and never stop to investigate its remote and general causes. But a revolution, when it is the work of the nation itself, is a splendid and imposing spectacle, because to the moral quality of indignation produced by the presence of evil, it adds the intellectual qualities of foresight and combination...
