Seite 84 - They collect food for the community, and when an object, too large for entrance, is brought to the nest, they enlarge the door, and afterwards build it up again.
Seite 336 - Browne's, from a firm conviction that it is decidedly the best, and also from a sense of duty we owe to the profession and the public, as we are of opinion that the substitution of any other than Collis Browne's is a DELIBERATE BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART OF THE CHEMIST.
Seite 112 - GOODALL, BACKHOUSE & CO., Leeds, Enclosing a Penny Stamp for postage, when you will be presented with a valuable book of 100 pages, bound in cloth, and fully illustrated, called, " GOOD THINGS," MADE, SAID, AND DONE, FOR EVERY HOME AND HOUSEHOLD.

Robert Schumann observed acutely : "It appears as if the sight of Chopin brought him again to his senses.

Seite 210 - ... connection grew rapidly. He got his twenty francs a lesson at the best houses ; he was naturally a welcome guest, and from the first seemed to have the run of high Parisian society.

His heart remained unspoiled. He was most generous to those who could not afford to pay for his lessons, most pitiful to the poor, most dutiful...
Seite 215 - Liszt with his finely-shaped, long, oval head and profile d'ivoire, set proudly on his shoulders, his stiff hair of dark blonde thrown back from the forehead without a parting, and cut in a straight line, his aplomb, his magnificent and courtly bearing, his ready tongue, his flashing wit and fine irony, his genial bonhomie and irresistibly winning smile ; and Chopin, also with dark blonde hair, but soft as silk, parted on one side, to use Liszt's own words, " an angel of fair countenance with brown...
Seite 216 - ... the soul. It has grown so perfect an instrument, and deals with so perfectly mastered an art, that a prelude like Lohengrin or the opening of Parsifal sounds like the actual expression of the inner moods of the spirit rendered outwardly with automatic unconscious fidelity. The rule, the technique are lost, hidden, forgotten, because completely efficacious, and subordinated to the free movements of the composer's spirit.
