One would have thought, considering the nature of the ground, that he could not have doubted from what quarter the voice came but instead of looking up to where I stood on the top of the steep cutting nearly over his head, he turned himself about, and looked down the Line. There was ...

It has always been my opinion since I first possessed such a thing as an opinion, that the man who knows only one subject is next tiresome to the man who knows no subject.

In the summer I often leave home early in the morning, and roam about fields and lanes all day, or even escape for days or weeks together but, saving in the country, I seldom go out until after dark, though, Heaven be thanked, I love its light and feel the cheerfulness it sheds upon the earth, as much as any creature living. I have fallen insensibly into this habit, both because it favours my infirmity and ...
