Stran 684 - And she may still exist in undiminished vigour when some traveller from New Zealand shall, in the midst of a vast solitude, take his stand on a broken arch of London Bridge to sketch the ruins of St. Paul's.
Stran 684 - No other institution is left standing which carries the mind back to the times when the. smoke of sacrifice rose from the Pantheon, and when camelopards and tigers bounded in the Flavian amphitheatre.
Stran 684 - Nor do we see any sign which indicates that the term of her long dominion is approaching.

To secure to each laborer the whole product of his labor, or as nearly as possible, is a worthy object of any good government.
Stran 213 - Men worship the shows of great men; the most disbelieve that there is any reality of great men to worship.

A Corsican lieutenant of artillery; that is the show of him: yet is he not obeyed...
