Side 364 - But once in six or seven years our virtue becomes outrageous. We cannot suffer the laws of religion and decency to be violated. We must make a stand against vice. We must teach libertines that the English people appreciate the importance of domestic ties. Accordingly some unfortunate man, in no respect more depraved than hundreds whose offences have been treated with lenity, is singled out as an expiatory sacrifice.
Side 247 - We owe the English peerage to three sources: the spoliation of the Church; the open and flagrant sale of its honours by the elder Stuarts; and the borough-mongering of our own times.
Side 138 - At school, friendship is a passion. It entrances the being; it tears the soul.

He understands, therefore, his position ; and he has the moral intrepidity which prompts *"'™ ever to dare that which his intellect assures...
Side 4 - I wish you to ride regularly every day. "As you are to be at home for so short a time, and for other reasons, I think it better that you should not have a tutor in the house. Parcel out your morning then for your separate masters. Rise early and regularly and read for three hours. Read the Memoirs of the Cardinal de Retz — the Life of Richelieu— everything about Napoleon : read works of that kind. Strelamb shall prepare you a list. Read no history, nothing but biography, for that is life without...
Side 249 - ... race not to despair, but to seek in a right understanding of the history of their country and in the energies of heroic youth, the elements of national welfare.
