Page 47 - Nor scans the fault for which her tears are shed. Can dull Indifference or Hate's troubled gaze See through the secret heart's mysterious maze ? — Can Scorn and Envy pierce that
Page 82 - What passions hurt the body, what improve: Avoid them, or invite them, as you may, Know then, whatever cheerful and serene Supports the mind, supports the body too. Hence, the most vital movement mortals feel Is Hope ; the balm and life-blood of the soul : It pleases, and it lasts.
Page 191 - Always use weak solutions of the mineral and vegetable astringents in the treatment of eye inflammations which attack the mucous surfaces, and restrict their application to conjunctival diseases exclusively.
