Strona 219 - ... sufficiency for his subsistence, or the means of procuring it: and as no fixed laws for the regulation of property can be so contrived, as to provide for the relief of every case and distress which may arise, these cases and distresses, when their right and share in the common stock...
Strona 19 - Somers, in the banker's case, will see he bottoms himself upon the very same maxim which I do ; and one of his principal grounds of doctrine for the alienability of the domain in England ', contrary to the maxim of the law in France, he lays in the constitutional policy of furnishing a permanent reward to public service ; of making that reward the origin of families ; and the foundation of wealth as well as of honours.
Strona 34 - Ordinary service must be secured by the motives to ordinary integrity.

Strona 474 - To dispense justice to millions of people of various languages, manners, usages and religions ; to administer a vast and complicated system of revenue throughout districts equal in extent to some of the most considerable kingdoms in Europe ; to maintain civil order in one of the most populous and litigious regions of the world ; these are now the duties of the larger proportion of the civil servants of the Company.
Strona 576 - From this method the children will not only reap the fore-mentioned advantages with far less charge to the parish than what is now done for them, but they will be also thereby the more obliged to come to school and apply themselves to work, because otherwise they will have no victuals, and also the benefit thereby both to themselves and the parish will daily increase; for, the earnings of their labour at school every day increasing, it may reasonably be concluded that, computing all the earnings...
