Pàgina 584 - The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage ; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it ; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
Pàgina 397 - Look round our world; behold the chain of love Combining all below and all above. See plastic nature working to this end, The single atoms each to other tend, Attract, attracted to, the next in place, Form'd and impell'd its neighbour to embrace. See matter next, with various life endued, Press to one centre still, the general good. See dying vegetables life sustain, See life dissolving vegetate again: All forms that perish other forms supply, (By turns we catch the vital breath, and die) AN ESSAY...
Pàgina 312 - This table and the accompanying remarks are the result of many years' actual observation ; the whole being constructed on a due consideration of the attraction of the sun and moon in their several positions respecting the earth ; and will, by simple inspection...

Pàgina 247 - Where, midst the changeful scenery, ever new, Fancy a thousand wondrous forms descries, More wildly great than ever pencil drew, Rocks, torrents, gulfs, and shapes of giant size, And glittering cliffs on cliffs, and fiery ramparts rise.
Pàgina 6 - I AM monarch of all I survey, My right there is none to dispute ; From the centre all round to the sea I am lord of the fowl and the brute.
Pàgina 622 - ... in Penza. After being absent some time, she returned ; and within the regular time, produced four young ones, two of which strongly resembled the marten.
Pàgina 198 - I bless thy name, That thou hast mantled the green earth with flowers, Linking our hearts to nature ! By the love Of their wild blossoms, our young footsteps first Into her deep recesses are beguiled, Her minster cells ; dark glen and forest bower, Where thrilling with its earliest sense of thee, Amidst the low religious whisperings And shivery leaf-sounds of the solitude, The spirit wakes to worship, and is made Thy living temple.
Pàgina 486 - Great degrees of heat, short of boiling, do not impair their vegetative power, nor do we know any degree of cold that has such an effect. Those who convey seeds from distant countries, should be instructed to keep them dry ; for if they receive any damp sufficient to cause an attempt at vegetation, they necessarily die, because the process cannot, as they are situated, go on.
Pàgina 153 - Your doubt, as to the great Mastodon being found in Norfolk, came not at all unexpected. I should have doubted it myself, under almost any other circumstances ; as it is, I feel sure and certain of the fact. I lived at Catfield, in Norfolk, six miles from Hasborough, and about as far from Horstead.
