Surely these are impertinent; not to call the _Beau_, or _Poetaster_ on the _Stage_ again, whose whole Lives are one continued scene of Folly and Impertinence; let us make the best of our _News Monger_. But we can breast out all such venial calamities, so that we are safe from that which heals them. Physics, whose particular function it is to calculate the external cause of our internal states, takes the least possible interest in these states themselves: constantly and deliberately it confuses them with their cause. L’Ariccia, besides being, after Cortona, the oldest place in Italy, is also one step towards Naples, which I had a strong desire to see—its brimming shores, its sky which glows like one entire sun, Vesuvius, the mouth of Hell, and Sorrentum, like the Islands of the Blest—yet here again the reports of robbers, exaggerated alike by foreigners and natives, who wish to keep you where you are, the accounts of hogs without hair, and children without clothes to their backs, the vermin (animal as well as human), the gilded hams and legs of mutton that Forsyth speaks of, gave me a distaste to the journey, and I turned back to put an end to the question.

If we are to believe Herodotus, the Babylonian women were in his time noted for their virtue, although at a later period they would seem to have lost that characteristic. The subjective side of Probability therefore, though very interesting and well deserving of examination, seems a mere appendage of the objective, and affords in itself no safe ground for a science of inference. Pass through this gateway, and upon reaching the first outhouse, note a wicket gate on the left. There is a dull, formal appearance, as if the different masses of sky, of water, &c., were laid on with plates of tin or lead.

Now we governe nature in opinions but are thrall to her in necessities, but if we would be led by her in invention we should command her in action.” These are not the views nor is this the accent of one who has been devoting himself to natural science. This observation is not confined to portrait; for the hired dresses with which our historical painters clothe their figures sit no more easily on the imagination of the artist, than they do gracefully on the lay-figures over which they are thrown. Tit. For this Pan, or the universal nature of things, which we view and contemplate, had its origin from the divine word and confused matter, first created by God himself, with the subsequent introduction of sin, and, consequently, corruption.

The true semblance of the Merry Monarch, undreamed-of by Gibbons or Lely, would be his portrait as he sat listening, in a tapestried alcove, to the touching text on the vanity of mortal pride, and the ever-during fragrance of “the actions of the just”: his little dogs at his feet, his dark eyes fixed on the unconscious lad; the motley somehow fallen from him, and a momentary truce set up between him and his defrauded thinking soul. It is a mere fiction or artifice necessarily resorted to for the purpose of calculation, and for this purpose only. Hence to assert the impenetrability of matter is simply to recognize the interconnexion between the notions of number and space, it is to state a property of number rather than of matter.–Yet, it will be said, do we not count feelings, sensations, ideas, all of which permeate one another, and each of which, for its part, takes up the whole of the soul?–Yes, undoubtedly; but, just because they permeate one another, we cannot count them unless we represent them by homogeneous units which occupy separate positions in space and consequently no longer permeate one another.

In the summer of 1863 there were eight regiments in the same division who took part in a certain battle and were defeated; but they did not confess themselves beaten ’till the number of their killed and wounded amounted to two thousand and two (2,002)–a loss so great that it never was before or afterwards equalled in our army or in any American army. That particular face was not chosen, though the fact of its being chosen was the remote consequence of an act of choice. The others stopped there. The invention of the poet is little more than the fertility of a teeming brain—that is, than the number and quantity of associations present to his mind, and the various shapes in which he can turn them without being distracted or losing a ‘semblable coherence’ of the parts; as the man of observation and reflection strikes out just and unforeseen remarks by taking off the mask of custom and appearances; or by judging for himself of men and things, without taking it for granted that they are what he has hitherto supposed them, or waiting to be told by others what they are. “And in the midst of the calves, dancing, with yellow locks, An offspring vast shall adore thee, O Shepherdess of heaven!” So sang the Aryans.

Another considers him “the hinge of the literary world.” Another bids the fountain of Hippocrene weep black mud, and warns the Muses that their bay-trees would go out of cultivation now that the laurel-crowned Verulam had left this planet. Then, then–and this is most important of all–you will at last be convinced that truth does not depend on logic, that there are no logical truths at all, that you therefore have the right to search for what you like, how you like, without argument, and that if something results from your search, it will not be a formula, not a law, not a principle, not even an idea!

Grandeur does not consist in omitting the parts, but in connecting all the parts into a whole, and in giving their combined and varied action: abstract truth or ideal perfection does not consist in rejecting the peculiarities of form, but in rejecting all those which are not consistent with the character intended to be given; and in following up the same _general idea_ of softness, voluptuousness, strength, activity, or any combination of these through every ramification of the frame.

Let him summon him _in placito_ before judges, and let him who is summoned, if he cannot deny, show another defendant for the homicide of which he is accused. I am myself somewhat effeminate, and would rather ‘the primrose path of dalliance tread;’ or the height of my ambition in this line would be to track the ancient route up the valley of the Simplon, leaving the modern road (much as I admire the work and the workman), and clambering up the ledges of rocks, and over broken bridges, at the risk of a sprained ankle or a broken limb, to return to a late, but excellent dinner at the post-house at Brigg! iorth sum j bolf?. Now for the position of each of these reduced observations, the relative frequency of whose component elements has thus been pointed out. In so confidently predicting the restoration, the prophets were only giving expression to the national hopefulness, but they might have based their expectation on stronger grounds. It can be readily shown that if two persons each resume de l acte scene de l avare with a sum of ?50 to start with choose to risk, say, ?10 upon an even wager there will be a loss of happiness as a result; for the pleasure gained by the possessor of ?60 will not be equal to that which is lost by the man who leaves off with ?40.[10] 19. What was meant by this appeal to ancient custom it is not easy to see, unless it might be the probably long-established equation already mentioned between 12 Roman drachmas or argentei and the Merovingian gold solidus.
