A Bill for the Better Promotion of Oppression on the Sabbath Day

By: Thomas Love Peacock

FORASMUCH as the Canter's and Fanatic's Lord Sayeth peace and joy are by me abhorred; And would fill each Sunday with gloom and pain For all too poor his regard to obtain; And forasmuch as the laws heretofore Have not sufficiently squeezed the poor Be it therefore enacted by Commons, King And Lords, a crime for any thing To be done on the Sabbath by any rank Excepting the rich. No beer may be drank, Food eaten, rest taken, away from home, And each House shall a Sunday pr...

The Critique of Pure Reason

By: Immanuel Kant

Excerpt: Human reason, in one sphere of its cognition, is called upon to consider questions, which it cannot decline, as they are presented by its own nature, but which it cannot answer, as they transcend every faculty of the mind. It falls into this difficulty without any fault of its own. It begins with principles, which cannot be dispensed with in the field of experience, and the truth and sufficiency of which are, at the same time, insured by experience. With these p...

Darwiniana : Essays and Reviews Pertaining to Darwinism

By: Asa Gray

PREFACE: These papers are now collected at the request of friends and correspondents, who think that they may be useful; and two new essays are added. Most of the articles were written as occasion called for them within the past sixteen years, and contributed to various periodicals, with little thought of their forming a series, and none of ever bringing them together into a volume, although one of them (the third) was once reprinted in a pamphlet form. It is, therefore,...

What's Bred in the Bone

By: Grant Allen

CHAPTER I. ELMA'S STRANGER: It was late when Elma reached the station. Her pony had jibbed on the way downhill, and the train was just on the point of moving off as she hurried upon the platform. Old Matthews, the stout and chubby-cheeked station-master, seized her most unceremoniously by the left arm, and bundled her into a carriage. He had known her from a child, so he could venture upon such liberties. “Second class, miss? Yes, miss. Here y'are. Look sharp, please. An...

Avillion; Or, The Happy Isles

By: Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

WE sat together on the deck, Lilias and I, listening to the boom of the wide Atlantic, and looking into each other's eyes. A thriftless occupation, but infinitely sweet. We had not grown tired of it yet, though we had been married three weeks; our love was not even a shadow the less. It seemed impossible for us to date its beginning; Heaven grant we may never know its end! We had been wedded three weeks. Three weeks! Could it be, then, that only one little month had pass...

History of the Christian Church, Volume Vii : Modern Christianity....

By: Philip Schaff

Religious Publication

Preface: I publish the history of the Reformation in advance of the concluding volume on the Middle Ages, which will follow in due time. The Reformation was a republication of primitive Christianity, and the inauguration of modern Christianity. This makes it, next to the Apostolic age, the most important and interesting portion of church history. The Luther and Zwingli celebrations of 1883 and 1884 have revived its memories, and largely increased its literature; while sc...

Marius the Epicurean : His Sensations and Ideas : Volume 1

By: Walter Horatio Pater

PART THE FIRST CHAPTER I: THE RELIGION OF NUMA. As, in the triumph of Christianity, the old religion lingered latest in the country, and died out at last as but paganism—the religion of the villagers, before the advance of the Christian Church; so, in an earlier century, it was in places remote from town- life that the older and purer forms of paganism itself had survived the longest. While, in Rome, new religions had arisen with bewildering complexity around the dying o...
