Página 153 - ... metal. Though an honourable title may be conveyed to posterity, yet the ennobling qualities which are the soul of greatness, are a sort of incommunicable perfections, and cannot be transferred. If a man could bequeath his virtues by will, and settle his sense and learning upon his heirs, as certainly as he can his lands, a noble descent would then indeed be a very valuable privilege.
Página 1 - ... private convenience of me alone ? It does not. But is it not possible so to accommodate it, by my own particular industry ? If to accommodate man and beast, heaven and earth ; if this be beyond me, it is not possible. What consequence then follows ? Or can there be any other than this ? If I seek an interest of my own, detached from that of others; I seek an interest which is chimerical, and can never have existence.
Página 86 - It appears from what has been said, that to adult persons, who have fortune sufficient to provide for a family according to their rank and condition in life, and who are endued with the ordinary degrees of prudence necessary to manage a family, and educate children, it is a duty they owe to society, to marry.
