Page vii - ... presence they have always done — that it tells truly whether they are pressing downwards only or obliquely, then all effects of table-turning cease, even though the parties persevere, earnestly desiring motion, till they become weary and worn out. No prompting or checking of the hands is needed — the power is gone ; and this only because the parties are made conscious of what they are really doing mechanically, and so are unable unwittingly to deceive themselves.
Page 251 - If you can look into the seeds of time, And say, which grain will grow, and which will not, Speak then to me, who neither beg, nor fear, Your favours, nor your hate.
Page 127 - South, in this respect, as they would view any other legal or constitutional right, and that the laws to enforce them should be respected and obeyed, not with a reluctance encouraged by abstract opinions as to their propriety in a different state of society, but cheerfully and according to the decisions of the tribunal to which their exposition belongs.

Certainly, were it not that I think myself born to do my Sovereign service (and therefore in that station I will live and die), otherwise, for...
Page 42 - I'll pause and sadly think: It was here he bowed his glossy neck when last I saw him drink! When last I saw thee drink! — Away! the fevered dream is o'er; I could not live a day, and know that we should meet no more! They tempted me, my beautiful! for hunger's power is strong, They tempted me, my beautiful! but I have loved too long. Who said that I had given thee up, who said that thou wert sold?
Page 127 - I believe that involuntary servitude, as it exists in different States of this confederacy, is recognized by the Constitution. I believe that it stands like any other admitted right, and that the States where it exists are entitled to efficient remedies to enforce the Constitutional provisions. I hold that the laws of 1850, commonly called the "Compromise Measures," are strictly Constitutional, and to be unhesitatingly carried into effect.
Page 127 - But let not the foundation of our hope rest upon man's wisdom. It will not be sufficient that sectional prejudices find no place in the public deliberations. It will not be sufficient that the rash counsels of human passion are rejected. It must be felt that there is no national security but in the nation's humble, acknowledged dependence upon God and His overruling providence.
Page 69 - It was a second MOSES in bonnet and in shawl. By means of one good lady were all these wonders wrought, By CAROLINE CHISHOLM'S energy, benevolence, and thought, Instead of making here and there a convert of a Turk, She has made idle multitudes turn fruitfully to work.
