Página 23 - ... leaf, and the virgin sisters, with the holy instincts of maternal love, detached and in selfless purity, and not say to himself, Behold the shadow of approaching humanity, the sun rising from behind, in the kindling morn of creation ! Thus all lower natures find their highest good in semblances and seekings of that which is higher and better.
Página 136 - ... slacken. His little tract on Human Nature has scarcely an ambiguous or a needless word. He has so great a power of always choosing the most significant term, that he never is reduced to the poor expedient of using many in its stead. He had so thoroughly studied the genius of the language, and knew so well how to steer between pedantry and vulgarity, that two centuries have not superannuated probably more than a dozen of his words.
