Side 36 - The seed ye sow, another reaps; The wealth ye find, another keeps; The robes ye weave, another wears; The arms ye forge, another bears.
Side 37 - It is not to die, or even to die of hunger, that makes a man wretched; many men have died; all men must die, - the last exit of us all is in a Fire-Chariot of Pain. But it is to live miserable we know not why; to work sore and yet gain nothing ; to be heart-worn, weary, yet isolated, unrelated, girt in with a cold universal Laissez-faire...
Side 98 - If every man has freedom to do all that he wills, provided he infringes not the equal freedom of any other man...
Side 185 - It is the judges (as we have seen) that make the common law. Do you know how they make it? Just as a man makes laws for his dog.

Side 78 - has freedom to do all that he wills, provided he infringes not the equal freedom of any other...
Side 129 - But the best state for human nature is that in which, while no one is poor, no one desires to be richer, nor has any reason to fear being thrust back, by the efforts of others to push themselves forward.
Side 264 - With wigwams and scalps, — with palaces and thousand-pound bills; with savagery, depopulation, chaotic desolation! Good Heavens, will not one French Revolution and Reign of Terror suffice us, but must there be two? There will be two if needed; there will be twenty if needed; there will be precisely as many as are needed. The Laws of Nature will have themselves fulfilled. That is a thing certain to me.
Side 251 - Universal History, the history of what man has accomplished in this world, is at bottom the History of the Great Men who have worked here.
