260 psl. - With juice of cursed hebenon in a vial, And in the porches of mine ears did pour The leperous distilment; whose effect Holds such an enmity with blood of man, That, swift as quicksilver, it courses through The natural gates and alleys of the body ; And, with a sudden vigour, it doth posset And curd, like eager droppings into milk, The thin and wholesome blood...
33 psl. - One thing, however, is clear — nature does not produce on the one side owners of money or commodities, and on the other men possessing nothing but their own labour-power. This relation has no natural basis, neither is its social basis one that is common to all historical periods.
326 psl. - July 14, 1890, are legal tender for all debts, public and private, except where otherwise expressly stipulated in the contract. United States notes are legal tender for all debts, public and private, except duties on imports and interest on the public debt.
186 psl. - ... heat upon him; let him cut out the shadows, as men dig wells in unwatered plains ; and lead along the lights, as a founder does his hot metal; let him keep the full command of both, and see that he knows how they fall, and where they fade.

7 psl. - This class includes fever, small-pox, plague, influenza, cholera, and the other diseases which have the peculiar character of suddenly attacking great numbers of people at intervals in unfavourable sanitary conditions. The diseases of this class distinguish one country from another — one year from another ; they have formed epochs in chronology ; and, as Niebuhr has shown, have influenced not only the fate of cities, such as Athens and Florence, but of empires ; they decimate armies, disable fleets...
5 psl. - Partly by weeding out those of lowest development, and partly by subjecting those who remain to the never-ceasing discipline of experience, nature secures the growth of a race who shall both understand the conditions of existence, and be able to act up to them.
188 psl. - What a strange sense of formalised deformity, of shrivelled precision, of starved accuracy, of minute misanthropy have we, as we leave even the rude streets of Picardy for the market towns of "Kent ! Until that street architecture of ours is bettered, until we give it some size and boldness, until we give our windows recess, and our walls thickness, I know not how we can blame our architects for their feebleness in more important work...
177 psl. - AnCHiTECTtrBE is the art which so disposes and adorns the edifices raised by man, for whatsoever uses, that the sight of them may contribute to his mental health, power, and pleasure.
