Page 343 - They are not likely to suffer harm by having Sydenham held up as an example for imitation : the fear is of another kind (and it is well grounded), namely, that many men of the best abilities and good education will be deterred from prosecuting physic as a profession, in consequence of the necessity indiscriminately laid upon all for impossible attainments, of which no example either is or can be held forth for their imitation.
Page 346 - ... control to all the powers of our nature. Hence it is entitled to be considered as the top and summit of perfection. It belongs to wisdom to determine when to act and when to cease ; when to reveal, and when to conceal a matter ; when to speak, and when to keep silence ; when to give, and when to receive ; in short, to regulate the measure of all things, as well as to determine the end, and provide the means of obtaining the end, pursued in every deliberate course of action.
Page 163 - The jaw still increases in all points till twelve months after birth, when the bodies of all the six teeth are pretty well formed ; but it never after increases in length between the symphysis and the sixth tooth ; and from this time too, the alveolar process, which makes the anterior part of the arches of both jaws, never becomes a section of a larger circle, whence the lower part of a childs face is flatter, or not so projecting forwards as in the adult.

Page 343 - They were more numerous than the majority of even studious men ever read in their whole lives ; yet these were a few prolegomena introductory to the office of a parish priest. We, too, conceive that it befits our dignity to magnify ourselves at certain seasons. The commencement of a session is usually the time chosen ; and then, what a crowd of wonderful things are marshalled by authority around the entrance of our profession ! And through this crowd, it is implied, every man must press his way before...
Page 482 - After the tumour has become solid and prominent, a new action takes place in it, and the tumour ulcerates and sloughs alternately, with a great deal of pain and suffering, and it is destroyed down to its basis, so as to present the appearance of a foul excavated ulcer, except in its circumference, where the skin is raised, thickened, and everted, and from time to time warts are generated, which again ulcerate and slough, till the patient becomes gradually worn out by suffering, but without having...
Page 346 - Have oft-times no connexion. Knowledge dwells In heads replete with thoughts of other men ; Wisdom in minds attentive to their own. Knowledge, a rude unprofitable mass, The mere materials with which wisdom builds, Till smooth'd and squar'd and fitted to its place> Does but encumber whom it seems t
Page 160 - That there must be a rule regulaling the grand epochs of development in a perfectly healthy individual, there can be no doubt.
