Página 23 - For honour travels in a strait so narrow, W'here one but goes abreast: keep then the path; For emulation hath a thousand sons, That one by one pursue: If you give way, Or hedge aside from the direct forthright, Like to an enter'd tide, they all rush by, And leave you hindmost...

But in exact proportion as the picture becomes brighter to their fancy, the probability of its being realized becomes less ; for the brain, worn out by premature exertion, either becomes diseased or loses its tone, leaving the mental powers imbecile and depressed for the remainder of life. The expected prodigy is thus easily outstripped in the social race by many whose dull outset promised him an easy victory.
Página 119 - It is when the stomach says enough, and is distinguished from satiety by the difference of the sensations — the former feeling enough — the latter too much. The first is produced by the timely reception into the stomach of proper aliment, in exact proportion to the requirements of nature, for the perfect digestion of which a definite quantity of gastric juice is furnished by the proper gastric apparatus. But to effect this most agreeable of all sensations and conditions — the real...
