Էջ 169 - Philosophy, wisdom, and liberty, support each other; he, who will not reason, is a bigot ; he, who cannot, is a fool ; and he, who dares not, is a slave.
Էջ 228 - Linnaean or the Natural system, who know the name and habitat of every plant within a day's walk from their dwellings; who steal the holiday of a day or two when any particular plant should be in flower, and tying up their simple food in their pocket-handkerchiefs, set off with single purpose to fetch home the humble-looking weed.
Էջ 95 - Dean to the passed candidate, who shall record his name and address upon the register of Graduates, with the title of his thesis. The names of the passed candidates are to be reported by the Dean to the President, who will communicate such report to the Board of Managers, in order, if approved by them, their mandamus may be issued for conferring the Degree.
Էջ 165 - ... resemble them. But, with the accumulated experience of ages bearing upon this important subject, our extended observation has only served to convince us how deficient we are in this department, and how often, even in the first step of our progress, we are left to conjecture.
Էջ 331 - ... view of obtaining an action of the bowels, we are incautious in the prolonged use of irritating medicines. Finding that the patient's chief discomfort arises from the fact of the bowels not acting, that he professes himself as feeling otherwise well, we are, perhaps...

Certainly, custom is most perfect when it beginneth in young years: this we call education, which is, in effect, but an early custom.
Էջ 171 - ... mortality would not have been greater than after all that has been done ; for we are not in the least more informed as to the proper remedies, than we were when the first case of cholera occurred ; we have not been instructed in the least, by those who have had the disease to treat. Some say that they have cured the disease by bleeding; others by calomel ; others by opium ; and others, again, say that opium does harm. No doubt many poor creatures died uncomfortably, who would have died tranquilly...
Էջ 332 - ... objection to administer a dose of castor oil to aid their propulsive efforts. In these cases it is also better to delay the administration of aperient enemata until the bowels are acting themselves. Previously to this they appear to add rather to the patient's discomfort, probably by the distension they occasion in the large intestine, which re-acts upon the parts already distended by the obstruction. When there is no tendency to sickness, it is better to allow the patient to take food, in the...
Էջ 63 - Sensibility to pain had ceased some time before death, and his last moments were not disturbed by any physical suffering. After death, an examination of the body was made ; when a most important fact was for the first time discovered, viz., that the fifth rib on the left side was fractured. This was the region where Sir Robert complained of suffering the greatest pain, and...
Էջ 88 - In the first place, they must clearly understand that it was not because a man was insane that he was unpunishable, and he must say that upon this point there was generally a very grievous delusion in the minds of medical men. The only insanity which excused a man for his acts was that species of delusion which conduced to and drove a man to commit the act alleged against him.
