Seite 336 - There is but one temple in the Universe,' says the devout Novalis, ' and that is the Body of Man. Nothing is holier than that high form. Bending before men is a reverence done to this Revelation in the Flesh. We touch Heaven when we lay our hand on a human body!
Seite 484 - The wealth of a man is the number of things which he loves and blesses, which he is loved and blessed by...
Seite 220 - ... the same sorrowful result discloses itself : you have to admit that the working body of this rich English Nation has sunk or is fast sinking into a state, to which, all sides of it considered, there was literally never any parallel. At Stockport Assizes — and this too has no reference to the present state of trade, being of date prior to that— a Mother and a Father are arraigned and found guilty of poisoning three of their children, to defraud a 'burial-society
Seite 407 - Great Man" impressed very legibly on Portland-stone there !
