When a Man Comes to Himself

By: Woodrow Wilson

It is a very wholesome and regenerating change which a man undergoes when he comes to himself. It is not only after periods of recklessness or infatuation, when has played the spendthrift or the fool, that a man comes to comes to himself. He comes to himself after experiences of which he alone may be aware: when he has left off being wholly preoccupied with his own powers and interests and with every petty plan that centers in himself; when he has cleared his eyes to see...

The Rise and Progress of Palaeontology

By: Thomas Henry Huxley

Excerpt: That application of the sciences of biology and geology, which is commonly known as palaeontology, took its origin in the mind of the first person who, finding something like a shell, or a bone, naturally imbedded in gravel or rock, indulged in speculations upon the nature of this thing which he had dug out?this ?fossil??and upon the causes which had brought it into such a position. In this rudimentary form, a high antiquity may safely be ascribed to palaeontolo...

Reminiscences of Tolstoy

Goblin Market and Selected Poems

By: Christina Rossetti

A Sonnet is a moment's monument,— / Memorial from the Soul's eternity / To one dead deathless hour. Look that it be, / Whether for lustral rite or dire portent, / Of its own arduous fulness reverent: / Carve it in ivory or in ebony, / As Day or Night may rule; and let Time see / Its flowering crest impearled and orient.

Steel Belt; Or, The Three Masted Goleta. A Tale of Boston Bay

By: J. H. Ingraham

The waters of Boston Bay slept without a ripple. The round green isles that swell here and there from its bosom were reflected in dark blue masses and bold outlines beneath the surface. It was near sunset. The skies were suffused and glowing with molten gold, and the waters were no less gorgeous than the sky. `As face answers to face in a glass,' so the mirror-like bay gave back the green islands, the golden firmament and the empurpled clouds that magnificently curtained...

The Broken Napoleons

By: Maxwell Grant

Excerpt: ALTHOUGH there were more than a dozen cars on the heights near Peekskill, looking over the shimmering expanse of the Hudson River, few knew what was being unfolded beneath them. Some might have seen one of these events, but none?not even those who were enacting the scene? realized the other. And no one ever imagined that these two events would prove to be a joint venture. The first event, which every one could see, took place on the river. Beating its way down t...

The Journal to Stella

By: Jonathan Swift

They accordingly appeared in 1766 in the tenth volume of Dr. Hawkesworth?s quarto edition of Swift?s works; but the editor made many ch...

Le Jardin D'Epicure

By: Anatole France

Nous avons peine a nous figurer l'etat d'esprit d'un homme d'autrefois qui croyait fermement que la terre etait le centre du monde et que tous les astres tournaient autour d'elle. Il sentait sous ses pieds s'agiter les damnes dans les flammes, et peut-etre avait-il vu de ses yeux et senti par ses narines la fumee sulfureuse de l'enfer, s'echappant par quelque fissure de rocher. En levant la tete, il contemplait les douze spheres, celle des elements, qui renferme l'air et...

Fairy Legends and Traditions

By: Thomas Crofton Croker

But before lodge was built, or acre sown, there was close to the head of this bill a large pasturage, where a herdsman spent his days and nights among the herd. The spot had been an old fairy ground, and the, good people were angry that the scene of their light and airy gambols should be trampled by the rude hoofs of bulls- and cows. The lowing of the cattle sounded sad in their ears, and the chief of the fairies of the hill determined in person to drive away the new com...

Excerpt: Chapter 1. THE GREAT TERROR It was on his fourteenth birthday that Keith Burton discovered the Great Terror, though he did not know it by that name until some days afterward. He knew only, to his surprise and distress, that the ?Treasure Island,? given to him by his father for a birthday present, was printed in type so blurred and poor that he could scarcely read it.
