Стр. 42 - The elementary group is the Family, connected by common subjection to the highest male ascendant. The aggregation of Families forms the Gens or House. The aggregation of Houses makes the Tribe. The aggregation of Tribes constitutes the Commonwealth.
Стр. 20 - In the almost inconceivable case of disobedience to the award of the village council, the sole punishment, or the sole certain punishment, would appear to be universal disapprobation.
Стр. 12 - God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
Стр. 116 - In almost all parts of the country, in the Midland and Eastern Counties particularly, but also in the West — in Wiltshire for example — in the South, as in Surrey, in the North, as in Yorkshire, there are extensive open and common fields. Out of 316 parishes in Northamptonshire, 89...

Стр. 106 - An Athenian citizen does not neglect the state because he takes care of his own household; and even those of us who are engaged in business have a very fair idea of politics. We alone regard a man who takes no interest in public affairs, not as a harmless, but as a useless character; and if few of us are originators, we are all sound judges of policy.
Стр. 106 - For we are lovers of the beautiful, yet simple in our tastes, and we cultivate the mind without loss of manliness.
