Seite 207 - Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased ; Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow ; Raze out the written troubles of the brain ; And, with some sweet, oblivious antidote, Cleanse the stuffed bosom of that perilous stuff, Which weighs upon the heart ? Doct.
Seite 85 - There is not a more painful action of the mind than invention ; yet in dreams it works with that ease and activity, that we are not sensible when the faculty is employed. For instance, I believe every one some time or other dreams that he is reading papers, books, or letters, in which case the invention prompts so readily that the mind is imposed upon, and mistakes its own suggestions for the compositions of another.
Seite 146 - THE CHANGE. OF LIFE IN HEALTH AND DISEASE: a ' Practical Treatise on the Nervous and other Affections incidental to Women at the Decline of Life.
Seite 84 - Two different lines of hieroglyphics have to be read at once, and the right hand has to be guided to attend to one of them, the left to another. All the ten fingers have their work assigned as quickly as they can move. The mind, or something which does duty as mind, interprets scores of A sharps and B flats and C naturals into black ivory keys and white ones, crotchets and quavers and demisemiquavers, rests, and all the other mysteries of music.
Seite 419 - One caution is necessary with regard to it. Not only in delirium tremens, but in other diseases, the first action of the chloral (like that of an insufficient dose of chloroform) is exciting rather than sedative. You must not on that account infer that it is acting injuriously, for a second dose will often produce the desired sleep. The best way to give it is in doses of half a drachm every two or three hours until sleep results.
Seite 133 - ... a superadded organ, the development of which seems to bear a pretty constant relation to the degree in which intelligence supersedes instinct as a spring of action. The ganglionic matter which is spread out upon the surface of the hemispheres, and in which their potentiality resides, is connected with the sensory tract at their base (which is the real centre of convergence for the sensory nerves of the whole body) by commissural fibres, long since termed by Roil, with sagacious foresight, 'nerves...
Seite 84 - ... a task of pushings and pullings more difficult than that of the hands. And all this time the performer, the conscious performer, is in a seventh heaven of artistic rapture at the results of all this tremendous business ; or perchance lost in a flirtation with the individual who turns the leaves of the music-book, and is justly persuaded she is giving him the whole of her soul...
Seite 180 - That those functional disorders connected with spinal tenderness are very often attended by some disturbance of the functions of the uterus, but that they are by no means always so, since they occur in those who are regular in this respect: in girls long before the menstrual period of life, in women after it has passed, and, lastly, in men of nervous susceptible habits, and in boys.
Seite 420 - From their respective viruses you may plant typhoid fever, scarlatina, or small-pox. What is the crop that arises from this husbandry? As surely as a thistle rises from a thistle seed, as surely as the fig comes from the fig, the grape from the grape, the thorn from the thorn, so surely does the typhoid virus increase and multiply into typhoid fever, the scarlatina virus into scarlatina, the small-pox virus into small-pox. What is the conclusion that suggests- itself here? It is this: — That the...
Seite 420 - ... of France in our day. Now it is in the highest degree important to know whether the parasites in question are spontaneously developed, or are wafted from without to those afflicted with the disease. The means of prevention, if not of cure, would be widely different in the two cases. But this is by no means all. Besides these universally admitted cases, there is the broad theory now broached and daily growing in strength and clearness — daily, indeed, gaining more and more of assent from the...
