Essays on Life, Sleep, Pain, Etc
Blanchard and Lea, 1852 - 301 من الصفحات
"In the following pages, the attempt has been made to engage the attention of the intelligent reader in the discussion of subjects usually, though erroneously, regarded as of technical rather than of universal interest. This exclusive character has become attached to them more from the manner in which they have been presented, than from anything in their own nature; and they are here brought forward in a point of view which, if somewhat novel, will, it is hoped, be found as generally acceptable as it is rational and obvious. The essays examine life, sleep, pain, intellection, hygiene, and death." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved).

الصفحة 285 - So live, that when thy summons comes to join The innumerable caravan, that moves To that mysterious realm, where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death, Thou go not, like the quarry slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave, Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.

الصفحة 251 - Or lose thyself in the continuous woods Where rolls the Oregon, and hears no sound Save his own dashings — yet the dead are there ! And millions in those solitudes, since first The flight of years began, have laid them down In their last sleep — the dead reign there alone.
الصفحة 31 - Try their thin wings and dance in the warm beam That waked them into life. Even the green trees Partake the deep contentment ; as they bend To the soft winds, the sun from the blue sky Looks in and sheds a blessing on the scene. Scarce less the cleft-born wild-flower seems to enjoy Existence, than the winged plunderer That sucks its sweets.
