Seite 731 - I am as sorry as if the original fault had been my fault, because myself have seen his demeanour no less civil than he excellent in the quality he professes: besides, divers of worship have reported his uprightness of dealing which argues his honesty, and his facetious grace in writing, that approves his art.
Seite 96 - The cause of laughter in every case is simply the sudden perception of the incongruity between a concept and the real objects which have been thought through it in some relation, and laughter itself is just the expression of this incongruity.
Seite 690 - These ineffectual exertions, and many others which were never published, could not remove my strong persuasion derived from philosophical considerations ; and, therefore, I recently resumed the inquiry by experiment in a most strict and searching manner, and have at last succeeded in magnetizing and electrifying a ray of light and in illuminating a magnetic line of force.
Seite 731 - Yes, trust them not; for there is an upstart crow, beautified with our feathers, that with his tiger's heart wrapped in a player's hide supposes he is as well able to bombast out a blank verse as the best of you; and being an absolute Johannes fac iotum, is in his own conceit the only Shake-scene in a country.

Seite 412 - ... becomes a conductor, and the electricity escapes from the inner cylinder to the earth. Thus the charge within the inner cylinder does not go on continually increasing; the cylinder settles down into a state of equilibrium in which the rate at which it gains negative electricity from the rays is equal to the rate at which it loses it by conduction through the air. If the inner cylinder has initially a positive charge it rapidly loses...
Seite 138 - In order to raise the critical point of hydrogen to about — 210°, from 2 to 5 per cent, of nitrogen or air was mixed with it. This is simply making an artificial gas containing a large proportion of hydrogen which is capable of liquefaction by the use of liquid air. The results are summed up in the following extract from the paper: "One thing can, however, be proved by the use of the gaseous mixture of hydrogen and nitrogen...
Seite 91 - Means not, but blunders round about a meaning : And he, whose fustian's so sublimely bad, It is not poetry, but prose run mad : All these, my modest satire bade translate, And owned that nine such poets made a Tate.
