Страница 332 - Oh how unlike the complex works of man, Heaven's easy, artless, unencumber'd plan ! No meretricious graces to beguile, No clustering ornaments to clog the pile ; From ostentation, as from weakness, free, It stands like the cerulean arch we see, Majestic in its own simplicity. Inscribed above the portal, from afar Conspicuous as the brightness of a star, Legible only by the light they give, Stand the soul-quickening words — BELIEVE, AND LIVE.
Страница 199 - The result was beyond his hopes. Tranquillity and harmony succeeded to tumult and disorder ; and the whole discipline was marked with a regularity and kindness, which had the most...
Страница 329 - Hippomolgian strays, Renown'd for justice and for length of days ; ' Thrice happy race ! that, innocent of blood, From milk, innoxious, seek their simple food : Jove sees delighted ; and avoids the scene Of guilty Troy, of arms, and dying men : No aid, he deems, to either host is given, While his high law suspends the powers of Heaven.

After a furious struggle of this sort, he was brought to the Bicetre in a state of great excitement.
Страница 309 - a should not think of God; I hop'd there was no need to trouble himself with any such thoughts yet. So 'a bade me lay more clothes on his feet. I put my hand into the bed and felt them, and they were as cold as any stone; then I felt...
Страница 196 - Towards the end of 1792, Pinel, after having many times urged the government to allow him to unchain the maniacs of the...
Страница 198 - Bicetre in a state of the greatest excitement. He had now been chained for ten years, and with greater care than the others, from his having frequently broken his chains with his hands only. Once when he broke loose, he defied all his keepers to enter his cell until they had each passed under his legs : and he compelled eight men to obey this strange command. Pinel, in his previous visits to him, regarded him as a man of original...
Страница 165 - ... others. For if such nostrum be of real efficacy, any concealment regarding it is inconsistent with beneficence and professional liberality ; and if mystery alone gave it value and importance, such craft implies either disgraceful ignorance or fraudulent avarice.
Страница 283 - I deny the lawfulness of telling a lie to a sick man, for fear of alarming him. You have no business with consequences ; you are to tell the truth. Besides, you are not sure what effect your telling him that he is in danger may have. It may bring his distemper to a crisis, and that may cure him. Of all lying, I have the greatest abhorrence of this, because I believe it has been frequently practised on myself.
