Research examples of reduce

It was brought forward in the most forcible manner by the writers of the last century, and it is expressly stated, and clearly answered by Bishop Butler in the Preface to his Sermons at the Rolls’ Chapel. If we are to digest the heavy food of historical and scientific knowledge that we have eaten we must be prepared for much greater exertions. _Educational results._–It is only right to require that a library should be able to show that it is increasing the educational content of the community, or raising its educational standard, or at least that it is exerting itself to do so, both directly and by co-operation with other agencies, especially with the public schools. There is another verb, which, in the same manner, runs through all languages, and which is distinguished by the name of the possessive verb; in Latin, _habeo_; in English, _I have_. In fact, so important have I considered this plan of Classification, that when I first came to Leopard’s Hill Lodge, I contrived the best way I could, with my means, to have a family and front part of the house, independent of the galleries; and should I be called upon to extend my plan to meet my increasing success, and should my life be spared, and time and health permit me to follow out my views and to build an Asylum upon a larger scale, I should keep these principles of Classification, as well as many others, in view, in the plan I should adopt, for I am more and more confirmed that they are extremely important; and I may mention as research examples of reduce proofs, that at all the houses we have had parties in the front part, who would, in their conduct and pursuits, and social enjoyments, put to shame many families who are reckoned perfectly sane. So it must be; for comedy is written to put us into an easy frame of mind, in which we are perfectly content with the world as it is. Whatever judgment we can form concerning them, accordingly, must always bear some secret reference, either to what are, or to what, upon a certain condition, {100} would be, or to what, we imagine, ought to be the judgment of others. Before we can feel much for others, we must in some measure be at ease ourselves. The expression here is _ideal_, and has a reference to visionary objects and feelings. I mean then that I never met with any thing in French that produces the same kind of feeling in the mind as the following passage. An obvious instance is the addition {54} of a peculiarly irritating effect when the orifice of the ear or nostril is tickled, an effect due to the action of the stimulus on the hairs, which are specially abundant here.[36] Some surfaces, too, which are free from hair, appear to be endowed with a special modification of the ticklish sensibility. Take if you please this case, dating back about a dozen years: An enterprising firm, operating a department store, offered to give to a branch library a collection of several thousand historical works on condition that these should be kept in a separate alcove plainly labeled “The gift of Blank Brothers.” Nothing so unusual about this. ESSAY XIII ON THE PLEASURE OF HATING There is a spider crawling along the matted floor of the room where I sit (not the one which has been so well allegorised in the admirable _Lines to a Spider_, but another of the same edifying breed)—he runs with heedless, hurried haste, he hobbles awkwardly towards me, he stops—he sees the giant shadow before him, and, at a loss whether to retreat or proceed, meditates his huge foe—but as I do not start up and seize upon the straggling caitiff, as he would upon a hapless fly within his toils, he takes heart, and ventures on, with mingled cunning, impudence, and fear. This dislike, again, is due, as we have seen, to a natural feeling of resentment at being taken down and treated as an inferior. {37b} The average height of the banks measures, according to Mr. All preliminary testimony was still _ex parte_. _ye-pa_, they. Certainly not. If a man who got drunk over-night, repents bitterly next morning, he will get drunk again at night; for both in his repentance and his self-gratification he is led away by the feeling of the moment. That he maintained the first opinion, will not be pretended by any body who is at all versed in the history of science. In regard to persons outside our graded force, such as janitors and messengers, we were held strictly to civil service rules, selecting our men from the first three on the list submitted to us by the commission. Then it is time to be on our guard. The works of the great masters in Statuary and Painting, it is to be observed, never produce their effect by deception. Decide for yourselves the broad lines of that policy, relying on your own common sense together with his expert advice; require him research examples of reduce to follow out those lines to a successful issue, and hold him responsible for the outcome. Mac-Intosh, I remember, explained this principle in his lectures in the following manner. In some of these cases, at least, the appreciation of the new object as odd or singular is aided by the agreeably lively character of the novel impression. Footnote 90: Consciousness is here and all along (where any particular stress is laid upon it) used in it’s etymological sense, as literally the same with _conscientia_, the knowing or perceiving many things by a simple act. The reader will I hope have the good-nature to pardon some inconsistencies of expression in treating of this subject. Whatever was hard, therefore, owed that quality either to the absence of heat, or to the absence of moisture. That is a very superficial account of it. Our shrinking from that which gives us pain could not in any respect be considered as an act of volition, or reason, if we did not know that the same object which gives us pain will continue to give us pain while we remain in contact with it. No one can do as well with poor tools and materials as with good ones; but the good worker will turn out a better job with the former than the inefficient one will. A child may grow keenly conscious of the self in such moments of newly tried powers, as he grows in “the moments of intense pain”. The tickling sensations excited by stimulating the hairy orifices of the ear and the nostril are said by Dr. In this first species of imitation, which being essential to, is therefore inseparable from, all such Vocal Music, there may be, and there commonly is, added a second. Suspense, where the mind is engrossed with one idea, and kept from amusing itself with any other, is not only the most uncomfortable, but the most tiresome of all things. There is no doubt in my mind that some efficiency record is necessary and valuable, and that a full record, including the usual high percentage of good things with the possible proportion of bad ones, is preferable to a mere blacklist, on which only the bad is recorded. There must probably be conceded to history a few “many-sided” men. Malice often takes the garb of truth. Take for instance such works as Poe’s.

Research examples reduce of. M. You are despised if you do not excel others, and hated if you do. In the business world our two sins flourish like green bay trees. It generally happens, that, when a metaphysical paradox is first started, it is thought sufficient by a vague and plausible explanation to reconcile it tolerably well with known facts: afterwards it is found to be a shorter way and savours more of a certain agreeable daring in matters of philosophy and dashes the spirit of opposition sooner to deny the facts on the strength of the hypothesis.—Independently however of all experimental proof, the reasoning as it is applied confutes itself. I cannot but recall here one already alluded to—one who seemed to embody the ideal of his teacher Aristotle not only as the just man, who of set purpose acts justly, but as the refined and gentlemanly man who regulates his wit, being as it were a law to himself—from behind whose wistful eyes a laugh seemed always ready to break. Vanity springs out of the grave of sordid self-interest. No ethnologist nowadays will seek to establish fixed and absolute lines between these. The prepositions _above_, _below_, _near_, _within_, _without_, _against_, &c., are much more rarely made use of, in modern languages, than the prepositions _of_, _to_, _for_, _with_, _from_, _by_. Whatever grading the library might choose to make within the senior assistant class (A, B and C) was therefore its own affair, the commission taking cognizance of it only so far as it involved increase of salary. As Sainte-Beuve reminds us, a whole people may have a fit (_acces_) of mania. The slaves in the plays of Plautus treat the tyranny under which they live “in a spirit of gay bravado”.[238] Nor need we be surprised at these liberties if we remember that the modern schoolmaster must almost be perfect if he does not find it expedient, not merely to permit his pupils _desipere in loco_, but to allow them now and again to have a mild joke at his expense. The most obvious remark suggested by this case is, that, like many old cases, when once an irritable habit is established in any part of the mind, how easily the mere association of old existing causes will overturn the balance and introduce a relapse into the same state: no exciting causes can have more power to do this, than the constant painful state of mind which ill-assorted and unhappy marriages produce; and therefore, the next most obvious remark suggested by this case, is the evil which arises from the whole mind being ultimately disagreeably affected by the contraction of hasty, mistaken, and ill-assorted matrimonial connexions. Philosophers, however, have not in general supposed that those exciting bodies produce those Sensations immediately, but by the intervention of one, two, or more intermediate causes. ‘This was some time a mystery: but the time gives evidence of it.’ The echoes of liberty had awakened once more in Spain, and the morning of human hope dawned again: but that dawn has been overcast by the foul breath of bigotry, and those reviving sounds stifled by fresh cries from the time-rent towers of the Inquisition—man yielding (as it is fit he should) first to brute force, but more to the innate perversity and dastard spirit of his own nature, which leaves no room for farther hope or disappointment. You must compliment your bitterest foe to his face, and may slander your dearest friend behind his back. If any thing is capable of making impression upon him, this will. The true composition of this word I take to be _ah-puz_, for _puz_ has a signification associated with the mysteries of religion; it expressed research examples of reduce the divine power which the native priests and prophets claimed to have received from the gods, and the essentially supernatural attributes of divinity itself. Critics and authors, who congregate in large cities, and see nothing of the world but a sort of phantasmagoria, to whom the numberless characters they meet in the course of a few hours are fugitive ‘as the flies of a summer,’ evanescent as the figures in a _camera obscura_, may talk very learnedly, and attribute the motions of the puppets to circumstances of which they are confessedly in total ignorance. x 3 = 1234?, and 326 x 3 = 978), it must have been 2.514 metre. Peter, appears to have been swallowed up by the sea about the time of Henry the 4th. In other words private libraries are doing more public work than formerly under contract with municipalities, becoming thereby subject to the control of the city or town but not so closely as to bring politics into the management. Authors are angry, loud, and vehement in argument: the man of more refined breeding, who has been ‘all tranquillity and smiles,’ goes away, and tries to ruin the antagonist, whom he could not vanquish in a dispute. Besides, Nollekens’s style was comparatively hard and edgy. A very large proportion of the books in a public library are properly intended for those who will read them for their own delectation, enjoying and appreciating and profiting personally by what they read. It seemed desirable to examine the process of laughter itself before taking up the much-discussed question of its causes. We require so little memorization by the student that the memory, as a practical tool of everyday life, is in danger of falling into disuse. But when a father fails in the ordinary degree of parental affection towards a son; when a son seems to want that filial reverence which might be expected to his father; when brothers are without the usual degree of brotherly affection; when a man shuts his breast against compassion, and research examples of reduce refuses to relieve the misery of his fellow-creatures, when he can with the greatest ease; in all these cases, though every body blames the conduct, nobody imagines that those who might have reason, perhaps, to expect more kindness, have any right to extort it by force. When the dancer, moving with a step of this kind, and observing this time and measure, imitates either the ordinary or the more important actions of human life, he shapes and fashions, as it were, a thing of one kind, into the resemblance of another thing of a very different kind: his art conquers the disparity which Nature has placed between the imitating and the imitated object, and has upon that account some degree of that sort of merit which belongs to all the imitative arts. More has, it seems to me, in this sentence just failed to put his finger on the right seriousness of great literary art: the seriousness which we find in Villon’s _Testament_ and which is conspicuously absent from _In Memoriam_; or the seriousness which controls _Amos Barton_ and not _The Mill on the Floss_. In some places the cliffs are very regularly stratified, presenting at various parts, layers of red and white sand, but in other places they are wholly devoid of stratification, exhibiting one continuous mass of till. The expression means only that a man will be ready to laugh at it, provided that he has certain requisite perceptions with the correlated emotional susceptibilities, and that nothing interferes with the working of these. Instead of the calming effects of a system of confidence and liberty, tranquillity, and peace, this contrary system will continue to goad, irritate, and inflame that part of the brain through which the mind, in this state, is operating; and in pursuing such a course we are clearly guilty of making that become fixed and permanent which otherwise might only have been of very temporary duration. _Eros._ It does, my Lord. And as we pass from this to the conduct of a business we recognize that the man who engages in commerce without keeping proper accounts is a fool and courts failure, and that the larger the business and the more widespread the interests, the more complicated and extensive must be the bookkeeping.

But I cannot conceive how he can have the same necessary, absolute interest in whatever relates to himself, or in his own pleasures and pains, generally speaking, whether he feels them, or not. Other theorists have not shown the same daring, but have contented themselves with _finding_ their instances. Let us remember, that this notion has an appearance of being confirmed by the most obvious observations; that those facts and experiments, which demonstrate the weight of the Air, and which no superior sagacity, but chance alone, presented to the moderns, were altogether unknown to them; and that, what might, in some measure, have supplied the place of those experiments, the reasonings concerning the causes of the ascent of bodies, in fluids specifically heavier than themselves, seem to have been unknown in the ancient world, till Archimedes discovered them, long after their system of physics was completed, and had acquired an established reputation: that those reasonings are far from being obvious, and that by their inventor, they seem to have been thought applicable only to the ascent of Solids in Water, and not even to that of Solids in Air, much less to that of one fluid in another. Such “automatisms” occur, however, within the limits of normal experience, as when a person laughs during a state of high research examples of reduce emotional tension. Fancy, feeling may be very inadequate tests of truth; but truth itself operates chiefly on the human mind through them. Yet, in speaking of the social point of view, I must not be taken to mean that either the author or the spectator of the comic scene is seriously judging of the behaviour of its figures by a reference to social values. When, writes a missionary of the tribes of the remote part of Victoria, a native is able to imitate the peculiarities of some absent member of the tribe, it is very common to hear all in the camp convulsed with laughter.[205] The Indians of Brazil hold the peculiarities, _e.g._, the beard, of other tribes up to laughter by means {248} of a lively pantomime.[206] This mimicry, as might be expected, embraces the odd ways of the white man. There will either be a number of detached objects and sensations without a mind to superintend them, or else a number of minds for every distinct object, without any common link of intelligence among themselves. Mere pains, mere pleasures do not have this effect, save from an excess of the first causing insensibility and then a faintness ensues, or of the last, causing what is called a surfeit. Goldsmith was even jealous of beauty in the other sex, and the same character is attributed to Wharton by Pope: ‘Though listening senates hung on all he spoke, The club must hail him master of the joke.’ Players are for going into the church—officers in the army turn players. The queen and princess offer themselves as hostages and are accepted, but the king warns them— Dame, par Dieu le roy celestre! Hachsenacker grimly replied that he would have slain his foe, whereupon Marschalck despatched him, and placing himself in his bier caused himself to be carried to the church of St. It should not therefore excite any alarm. From that point of view the Shavian drama is a hybrid as the Maeterlinckian drama is, and we need express no surprise at their belonging to the same epoch. The never-failing certainty with which all men, sooner or later, accommodate themselves to whatever becomes their permanent situation, may, perhaps, induce us to think that the Stoics were, at least, thus far very nearly in the right; that, between one permanent situation and another, there was, with regard to real happiness, no essential difference: or that, if there were research examples of reduce any difference, it was no more than just sufficient to render some of them the objects of simple choice or preference; but not of any earnest or anxious desire: and others, of simple rejection, as being fit to be set aside or avoided; but not of any earnest or anxious aversion. Can it have reference to the seed covered by the soil, the child buried in the womb, the egg hidden in the nest, etc., and thus typify one of the principles or phases of reproduction? As an artisan of the theatre he is not inferior to Fletcher, and his best tragedies have an honester unity than _Bonduca_. The first could only have prompted him to the affectation of virtue, and to the concealment of vice. The consciousness, or even the suspicion of having done wrong, is a load upon every mind, and is accompanied with anxiety and terror in all those who are not hardened by long habits of iniquity. He merely substitutes his own will, caprice, and prejudices for ours, and expects us to be guided by them. Cherish her and promote her. Their reaction to the library is often a phase of the local feeling that is the subject of this lecture. In some places small promontories or points project, in others small bays are formed, according to the influence of the sea, and the materials composing their structure. This, of course, destroys the look we are speaking of, from the want of ease and self-confidence. And Hamlet the character has had an especial temptation for that most dangerous type of critic: the critic with a mind which is naturally of the creative order, but which through some weakness in creative power exercises itself in criticism instead. That necessary rule of justice, therefore, that {97} men in this life are liable to punishment for their actions only, not for their designs and intentions, is founded upon this salutary and useful irregularity in human sentiments concerning merit or demerit, which at first sight appears so absurd and unaccountable. And this is implied in Mr. A community is not a community unless it has political and religious interests. Our continuity of consciousness is broken, crumbles, and falls in pieces. Few would defend the use of the library’s walls or windows for the display of commercial advertising; although the money received therefor might be sorely needed. No, even the fell Serjeant Death stands as it were aloof, and he enjoys a kind of premature immortality in recorded honours and endless labours. He may have lived too much in ease and tranquillity. He lifted up the serpent. It is also, if you will, a mechanical feeling; but then it is neither a physical, nor a selfish mechanism. Within a generation after the conquest they had completed a quite accurate analysis of its grammatical structure, and had printed a Nahuatl-Spanish dictionary containing more words than are to be found in any English dictionary for a century later. The labour of years, the triumph of aspiring genius and consummate skill, is not to be put down by a cynical frown, by a supercilious smile, by an ignorant sarcasm.
