Populāri fragmenti

129. lappuse - Americans of all ages, all conditions, and all dispositions, constantly form associations. They have not only commercial and manufacturing companies, in which all take part, but associations of a thousand other kinds — religious, moral, serious, futile, extensive, or restricted, enormous or diminutive.
121. lappuse - They owe nothing to any man, they expect nothing from any man ; they acquire the habit of always considering themselves as standing alone, and they are apt to imagine that their whole destiny is in their own hands. Thus, not only does democracy make every man forget his ancestors...
71. lappuse - Style will frequently be fantastic, incorrect, overburdened, and loose, almost always vehement and bold. Authors will aim at rapidity of execution more than at perfection of detail. Small productions will be more common than bulky books; there will be more wit than erudition, more imagination than profundity; and literary performances will bear marks of an untutored and rude vigor of thought, frequently of great variety and singular fecundity. The object of authors will be to astonish rather than...
130. lappuse - Wherever, at the head of some new undertaking, you see the government in France, or a man of rank in England, in the United States you will be sure to find an association.
1. lappuse - To evade the bondage of system and habit, of family-maxims, class-opinions, and, in some degree, of national prejudices; to accept tradition only as a means of information, and existing facts only as a lesson used in doing otherwise and doing better...
128. lappuse - ... and as he sees no particular ground of animosity to them, since he is never either their master or their slave, his heart readily leans to the side of kindness. Men attend to the interests of the public, first by necessity, afterwards by choice : what was intentional becomes an instinct ; and by dint of working for the good of one's fellow citizens, the habit and the taste for serving them is at length acquired.
130. lappuse - Thus, the most democratic country on the face of the earth is that in which men have, in our time, carried to tho highest perfection the art of pursuing in common the object of their common desires, and have applied this new science to the greatest number of purposes.
128. lappuse - Many people in France consider equality of condition as one evil, and political freedom as a second. When they are obliged to yield to the former, they strive at least to escape from the latter. But I contend that, in order to combat the evils which equality may produce, there is only one effectual remedy, — namely, political freedom.
79. lappuse - Tocqueville is therefore likely to be found wrong in saying, that ' Milton alone introduced more than six hundred words into the English language, almost all derived from the Latin, the Greek, or the Hebrew.' The passage occurs in the 16th chapter of his ' Democracy in America,
390. lappuse - But it would seem that if despotism were to be established among the democratic nations of our days, it might assume a different character ; it would be more extensive and more mild ; it ' would degrade men without tormenting them.
