Those effects may sometimes be agreeable, and sometimes disagreeable; and though our approbation is no doubt stronger in the former case, it is by no means altogether destroyed in the latter. He sat down on a low stool (from being rather fatigued), rested with both hands on a stick, as if he clung to the solid and tangible, had an habitual twitch in his limbs and motions, as if catching himself in the act of going too far in chiselling a lip or a dimple in a chin; was _bolt_-upright, with features hard and square, but finely cut, a hooked nose, thin lips, an indented forehead; and the defect in his sight completed his resemblance to one of his own masterly busts. That they proceed from some intelligent, though invisible causes, of whose vengeance and displeasure they are either the signs or the effects, is the notion of all others most capable of enhancing this passion, and is that, therefore, which he is most apt to entertain. The wisdom of the Deity was employed in finding out the means for bringing about those ends which his goodness suggested, and his infinite power was exerted to execute them.

After all, what is there in these harmless half-lies, these fantastic exaggerations, but a literal, prosaic, _Cockney_ translation of the admired lines in Gray’s Ode to Eton College:— ‘What idle progeny succeed To chase the rolling circle’s speed Or urge the flying ball?’ A man shut up all his life in his shop, without any thing to interest him from one year’s end to another but the cares and details of business, with scarcely any intercourse with books or opportunities for society, distracted with the buzz and glare and noise about him, turns for relief to the retrospect of his childish years; and there, through the long vista, at one bright loop-hole, leading out of the thorny mazes of the world into the clear morning light, he sees the idle fancies and gay amusements of his boyhood dancing like motes in the sunshine. Yet we know to a certainty that there were quantities of these manuscripts in use in Yucatan for a generation after Cogolludo wrote. We recognize this in our colloquial speech. Moore wish to shrink from it, to revive the injustice of fortune and the world, and to abide by the idle conjectures of a fashionable _coterie_ empannelled on the spot, who would come to the same shallow conclusion whether the individual in question were an idiot or a God? Let no one, then, deride or decry the formation or the operation of a library machine; we live in an age of machinery–of machines formed by effective human co-operation, as well as by interlocking gears and interacting parts. This absurd inference, I say, could never be implied in the common use of the terms, as it could never be imagined that in order to feel for others, we must in reality feel nothing. The simply phlegmatic never turns to the truly ‘fiery quality.’ So, the really gay or trifling never become thoughtful and serious. No one admires poetry more than I do, or sees more beauties in it; though if I were to try for a thousand years, I should never be able to do any thing to please myself. Equally divided in this respect are the philosophers and psychologists. Scarce, in any one instance, perhaps, will our sentiments be found, after examination, to be entirely regulated by this rule, which we all acknowledge ought entirely to regulate them. Juvenal expresses the lively contempt of the urban citizen for his provincial inferior,[246] and our own comedy of the Restoration, taking town life as its standard, pours ridicule on the country gentry.[247] It is illustrated also in the relation of the clergy {284} as the learned class, to the ignorant laity. It is a joyous companion who gives vent to the gaiety and mirth with which wine, festivity, and good company inspire him. It is easy to make a bold assertion, and just as easy to deny it; and I do not know that there is any authority yet established by which I am bound to yield an implicit assent to every extravagant opinion which some man of celebrity has been hardy enough to adopt, and make others believe. Besides, Nollekens’s style was comparatively hard and edgy. The part necessarily played by the librarian in this scheme may be regarded by some as an objection. No cruelty is too great for the conscientious persecutor who believes that he is avenging his God, but the limitless capacity of human nature for inflicting is not complemented by a limitless capacity of endurance on the part of the victim; and well authenticated as the accounts of the Scottish witch-trials may be, they seem to transcend the possibility of human strength.[1840] In another respect these witch-trials were marked with a peculiar atrocity. My being led to perform different actions with which the same abstract idea of utility is connected is not therefore properly owing to association, but because any ideas or motives of the same kind whether derived from a new impression, or made out by the imagination, or only general feelings must naturally influence the will in the same manner, and this impulse being once given, the understanding makes choice of such means as are perceived to be necessary to the attainment of the given object. Wordsworth’s phrase, ‘the child’s the father of the man’ surely enough. And in reality such imitations, though no doubt ridiculous every where, yet certainly appear somewhat less so in the musical than they would in the common drama. The spectacle of human ignorance grows particularly entertaining when it has to do with matters supposed to be {104} of common knowledge.

A measure of faith enables one to believe that even a political leader is sometimes checked by the fear of laughter—on the other side. The individualism of the point of view in a laughing contemplation of one’s social world is only surmounted when a large philosophic humour thus draws the laughers self into the amusing scene. It assumes its most pungent and most dreaded form, ridicule or derision.

There may be different organs to receive different material or concrete impressions, but surely only the mind can abstract the different impressions of the same sense from each other. Soon there was a further step, in making which the library took over services whose connection with its primary business was not so clear. There are also tales of the Straw Bird or Phantom Bird. Titian and Michael Angelo lived longer, but they worked as hard and did as well. It is a view commonly held, and as we shall see supported by the practices of art, that all vices are not equally fit subjects for laughter. for _little_ read _little_. He has a right to blubber like a school-boy whenever he pleases, who almost every night of his life makes hundreds of people laugh till they forget they are no longer school-boys. I am not convinced that those are always the best-natured or the best-conditioned men, who busy themselves most with the distresses of their fellow-creatures. Then Juan himself was ordered to the rack, but, while protesting his innocence, he begged rather to be put to death, as he was too old to endure the torment. We can feel little anxiety about the propriety of our own actions, when we are indifferent about the events which may result from them. This however must be the work of time, the gradual result of habit, and reflection, and cannot be the natural reason why a man pursues his own welfare, or is interested in his own feelings. Much of the best that appears in the daily press is of this kind. Leigh Hunt and Mr. G. The phrase, ‘a good-looking man,’ means different things in town and country; and artists have a separate standard of beauty from other people.

I am afraid that you will compare this address very unfavorably with the celebrated chapter on snakes in Iceland, because whereas the author of that was able to announce the non-existence of his subject in six words, it has taken me a good many thousand.
