As a proof how much courage depends on opinion, we may observe, that, of the two chief tribes of the Greeks , the Dorians , and Ionians , the former were always esteemed, and always appeared more brave and manly than the latter though the colonies of both the tribes were interspersed and intermingled throughout all the extent of Greece , the Lesser Asia , Sicily , Italy , and the islands of the Æ AE originally ' xC6 ' separated to make searching the text easier gean sea. The Athenians were the only Ionians that ever had any reputation for valour or military atchievements though even these were deemed inferior to the Lacedemonians , the bravest of the Dorians.
It appears to have been a usual practice in Athens , on the establishment of any law esteemed very useful or popular, to prohibit for ever its abrogation and repeal. Thus the demagogue, who diverted all the public revenues to the support of shows and spectacles, made it criminal so much as to move for a repeal of this law 5 originally '*' footnotes have been numbered for ease of reference 7 * . Thus Leptines moved for a law, not only
Thirdly , Though the extent of the walls, as given us by Thucydides 5 originally ' x7576 ' footnotes have been numbered for ease of reference 699 x7576 , be great, (to wit, eighteen miles, beside the sea-coast): Yet Xenophon 5 originally ' x6C6 ' footnotes have been numbered for ease of reference 695 x6C6 says, there was much waste ground within the walls. They seem indeed to have joined four distinct and separate cities 5 originally ' xA7 ' footnotes have been numbered for ease of reference 696 xA7 .
The Bremen Incident led the Nazi’s to raise their banner of hatred as a national symbol while making the Jews into “second class subjects” of Germany. The Jews were then treated as the untermenschenHitler believed they were.
Nor is the case different with regard to the second circumstance which we proposed to consider, namely, the great or little riches to supply the demand. This effect also depends on the habits and way of living of the people, not on the quantity of gold and silver. In order to have, in any state, a great number of lenders, it is not sufficient nor requisite, that there be great abundance of the precious metals. It is only requisite,
We may be assured, that an extreme purity of manners was the consequence of this reserve. Accordingly we find, that, except the fabulous stories of Helen and Clytemnestra , there scarcely is an instance of any event in the Greek history, which proceeded from the intrigues of women. On the other hand, in modern times, particularly in a neighbouring nation, the females enter into all transactions and all management of church and state: And no man can expect success, who takes not care to obtain their good graces. Harry the third, by incurring the displeasure of the fair, endangered his crown, and lost his life, as much as by his indulgence to heresy.

The established clergy were episcopal the non-conformists presbyterian: So that all things concurred to throw the former, without reserve, into the king’s party and the latter into that of the parliament.
A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence. In such conclusions as are founded on an infallible experience, he expects the event with the last degree of assurance, and regards his past experience as a full proof of the future existence of that event. In other

We need but open any classic author to meet with these gross representations of the deities and Longinus 5 originally ' x7575 ' footnotes have been numbered for ease of reference 67 x7575 with reason observes, that such ideas of the divine nature, if literally taken, contain a true atheism.
It is thus enthusiasm produces the most cruel disorders in human society but its fury is like that of thunder and tempest, which exhaust themselves in a little time, and leave the air more calm and serene than before. When the first fire of enthusiasm is spent, men naturally, in all fanatical sects, sink into the greatest remissness and coolness in sacred matters there being no body of men among them, endowed with sufficient authority, whose interest is concerned to support the
