Memoirs of Henry Hunt, Esq, Volume 2

By: Henry Hunt

Hunting, shooting, and fishing by day, and mixing in the thoughtless, gay, and giddy throng by night, soon, however, dispelled any unpleasant impression which this circumstance had made upon my mind. I every day became acquainted with new and more fashionable society than I had before associated with, and as my son was about to be christened, we were determined to give a sumptuous feast and a ball, at which upwards of forty friends sat down to dinner. When I recal to min...

The Pagan Tribes of Borneo

By: Charles Hose and William Mcdougall

Preface: In writing this book we have aimed at presenting a clear picture of the pagan tribes of Borneo as they existed at the close of the nineteenth century. We have not attempted to embody in it the observations recorded by other writers, although we have profited by them and have been guided and aided by them in making our own observations. We have rather been content to put on record as much information as we have been able to obtain at first hand, both by direct ob...

Scientific American Supplement, No. 430, March 29, 1884

By: Various

The genus Cuscuta contains quite a number of species which go under the common name of dodder, and which have the peculiarily of living as parasites upon other plants. Their habits are unfortunately too well known to cultivators, who justly dread their incursions among cultivated plants like flax, hops, etc. All parasitic plants, or at least the majority of them, have one character in common which distinguishes them at first sight. In many cases green matter is wanting i...

The Early Poems of Alfred Lord Tennyson

By: Alfred Lord Tennyson

Preface: A Critical edition of Tennyson?s poems has long been an acknowledged want. He has taken his place among the English Classics, and as a Classic he is, and will be, studied, seriously and minutely, by many thousands of his countrymen, both in the present generation as well as in future ages. As in the works of his more illustrious brethren, so in his trifles will become subjects of curious interest, and assume an importance of which we have no conception now. Here...

The Sonnets

By: William Shakespeare

From fairest creatures we desire increase, That thereby beauty?s rose might never die, But as the riper should by time decease, His tender heir might bear his memory: But thou contracted to thine own bright eyes, Feed?st thy light?s flame with self-substantial fuel, Making a famine where abundance lies, Thy self thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel: Thou that art now the world?s fresh ornament, and only herald to the gaudy spring, Within thine own bud buriest thy content...

The Jungle Book

By: Rudyard Kipling

It was seven o?clock of a very warm evening in the Seeonee hills when Father Wolf woke up from his day?s rest, scratched himself, yawned, and spread out his paws one after the other to get rid of the sleepy feeling in their tips. Mother Wolf lay with her

By: Hendrik Van Loon

THE STORY OF MANKIND: HIGH Up in the North in the land called Svithjod, there stands a rock. It is a hundred miles high and a hundred miles wide. Once every thousand years a little bird comes to this rock to sharpen its beak. When the rock has thus been worn away, then a single day of eternity will have gone by.

Die Geburt der Tragoedie

By: Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Was auch diesem fragwuerdigen Buche zu Grunde liegen mag: es muss eine Frage ersten Ranges und Reizes gewesen sein, noch dazu eine tief persoenliche Frage, - Zeugniss dafuer ist die Zeit, in der es entstand, trotz der es entstand, die aufregende Zeit des deutsch-franzoesischen Krieges von 1870/71. Waehrend die Donner der Schlacht von Woerth ueber Europa weggiengen, sass der Gruebler und Raethselfreund, dem die Vaterschaft dieses Buches zu Theil ward, irgendwo in einem Wi...

Gregory the Great II : Ephraim Syrus, Aphrahat

By: Philip Schaff

Religious Publication

Excerpt: The preacher of Almighty God, Paul the apostle, says, Rebuke not an elder (1 Tim. v. 1). But this rule of his is to be observed in cases where the fault of an elder does not draw through his example the hearts of the younger into ruin. But, when an elder sets an example to the young for their ruin, he is to be smitten with severe rebuke. For it is written, Ye are all a snare to the young (Isai. xlii. 22). And again the prophet says, The sinner being an hundred y...

Moral Philosophy

By: Joseph Rickaby

For fifteen years this Manual has enjoyed all the popularity that its author could desire. With that popularity the author is the last person to wish to interfere. Therefore, not to throw previous copies out of use, this edition makes no alteration either in the pagination or the text already printed. At the same time the author might well be argued to have lapsed into strange supineness and indifference to moral science, if in fifteen years he had learnt nothing new, an...

Geometrical Solutions Derived from Mechanics : A Treatise of Archi...

By: Archimedes

If there ever was a case of appropriateness in discovery, the finding of this manuscript in the summer of 1906 was one. In the first place it was appropriate that the discovery should be made in Constantinople, since it was here that the West received its first manuscripts of the other extant works, nine in number, of the great Syracusan. It was furthermore appropriate that the discovery should be made by Professor Heiberg, among all workers in the field of editing the c...

How to Live on Twenty-Four Hours a Day

By: Arnold Bennett

This preface, though placed at the beginning, as a preface must be, should be read at the end of the book. I have received a large amount of correspondence concerning this small work, and many reviews of it?some of them nearly as long as the book itself?have been printed. But scarcely any of the comment has been adverse. Some people have objected to a frivolity of tone; but as the tone is not, in my opinion, at all frivolous, this objection did not impress me; and had no...

The Picture of Dorian Gray

By: Oscar Wilde

From the corner of the divan of Persian saddle-bags on which he was lying, smoking, as usual, innumerable cigarettes, Lord Henry Wotton could just catch the gleam of the honey-sweet and honey-colored blossoms of the laburnum, whose tremulous branches seemed hardly able to bear the burden of a beauty so flame-like as theirs; and now and then the fantastic shadows of birds in flight flitted across the long tussore-silk curtains that were stretched in front of the huge wind...

She resumed, It hath reached me, O auspicious King, that when the old Queen heard the handmaid?s words she was wroth with sore wrath because of her and cried, ?How shall there be accord between man and Jinn?? But Safy al-Muluk replied, ?Indeed, I will conform to thy will and be thy page and die in thy love and will keep with thee covenant and regard non but thee: so right soon shalt thou see my truth and lack of falsehood and the excellence of my manly dealing with thee,...

Speeches on Questions of Public Policy : Volume 1

The speeches which have been selected for publication in these volumes possess a value, as examples of the art of public speaking, which no person will be likely to underrate. Those who may differ from Mr. Bright?s theory of the public good will have no difficulty in acknowledging the clearness of his diction, the skill with which he arranges his arguments, the vigour of his style, the persuasiveness of his reasoning, and above all, the perfect candor and sincerity with ...

Translated from the Sanskrit

By: Arthur W. Ryder

TWENTY-TWO GOBLINS. On the bank of the Godavari River is a kingdom called the Abiding Kingdom. There lived the son of King Victory, the famous King Triple-victory, mighty as the king of the gods. As this king sat in judgment, a monk called Patience brought him every day one piece of fruit as an expression of homage. And the king took it and gave it each day to the treasurer who stood near. Thus twelve years passed.
