No incongruity exists when the ideas of equality and inequality are applied the one to the bounds and the other to the benefits.
Страница 518 - I have always been strongly in favor of secular education, in the sense of education without theology; but I must confess I have been no less seriously perplexed to know by what practical measures the religious feeling, which is the essential basis of conduct, was to be kept up, in the present utterly chaotic state of opinion on these matters, without the use of the Bible.
