I was an ablebodied and ableminded young man in the strength of my youth; and my family, then heavily embarrassed, needed my help urgently.
Then don't you ever go and say you were allowanced,--mind that!"
Mrs. Morris sat on the hall chair, patting me as I rubbed against her, in rather an absentminded way.
Indigestion from the countless gallons of sugared water drunk at the Congressional bar; callouses on his feet from endless promenades along the central corridor, absentmindedly knocking the varnish off the tiles of the wainscoating with the tip of his cane; an incalculable quantity of pesetas spent on carriages, through fault of his supporters, who sent him trotting every morning from one Ministry to the next, asking for the earth, and getting a grain of sand!
My aunt is highly amusing with her absentmindedness, but I should not care to have her for a fellow-conspirator.
We became airminded. (
"'Twere better," said Alminda, "to check thy fancy's flight, For thought can rob the happiest hours of all their deep delight."
Perhaps this mysterious sweetheart is the same one he alludes to later as Annamindl, and concerning whom he sends his sister such solemn messages as these: "Don't, I entreat, forget about the one other, where no other can ever be."
The days of the Kates, and Dollys, and Pattys, and Bettys, have passed away, and in their stead we hear of Lowinys, and Orchistrys, Philenys, Alminys, Cytherys, Sarahlettys, Amindys, Marindys, &c. &c. &c. All these last appellations terminate properly with an a, but this unfortunate vowel, when a final letter, being popularly pronounced like y, we have adapted our spelling to the sound, which produces a complete bathos to all these flights in taste.
Nor shall the desperate act of Leidenberch Delude what we determind.
The shortest effect I can give of the impression I had was that our men, superior, broadminded, more frank, and lovable beings, were regarding these faded, unimaginative products of perverted kulture as a set of objectionable but amusing lunatics whose heads had got to be eventually smacked.
At this display of charitable broadmindedness an approving shout went up on all sides.

I feare I have detracted time too long In my determinde service to my Love; But Ile redeeme my fault with double care.
"Neberdeless, mind you"--here the orator brimmed his glass from the bottle and swallowed the contents with a dry eye--"mind you, a roytious man, sech as ministers of de gospel and dere body-sarvants, can take a leetle for de weak stomach."
105 For having yet in his deducted spright Some sparks remaining of that heavenly fyre, He is enlumind with that goodly light, Unto like goodly semblant to aspyre; Therefore in choice of love he doth desyre 110 That seemes on earth most heavenly to embrace, That same is Beautie, borne of heavenly race.
But it is also my agreeable conviction that the highminded Government of the United States shares warmly the sentiments of the people.
For instance, for a good many years now the immigration inspectors have taken such precautions as they could against the admission of the insane, but it is only recently that modified Binet tests have been used to check the entry of a socially far more injurious class, the congenitally feebleminded.

We ought to petition, also, for a volume which should contain the life of the Saviour, and the legends of the Virgin Mary; though this latter subject, we are afraid, will be too difficult for even Mrs. Jameson's tact and delicacy to make tolerable to English readers, so thoroughly has the Virgin Mary, as especial patroness of purity, been intermixed in her legends with every form of prudish and prurient foulmindedness.
The new Negroes in the North, therefore, will, as so many of their race in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago are now doing, ally themselves with those men who are fairminded and considerate of the man far down, and seek to embrace their many opportunities for economic progress, a foundation for political recognition, upon which the race must learn to build.
On the one hand, a leader is lavishly panegyrised for his highmindedness, in suffering himself to be driven into his convictions by his party.
If the parent owns him,--mind, body, and soul, we must adopt one line of argument; if, as a human being, he owns himself, we must adopt another.
Your talking Latin,--said I,--reminds me of an odd trick of one of my old tutors.
Fortunately, or providentially, some of these men have disappointed those who elevated them, and have unexpectedly developed in office both uncommon executive power and still rarer integrity,--reminding us of those popes who have reigned more like foxes and lions than like the asses that before their elevation sometimes they were thought to be.

"Me only wantchee lemindee you," said Sin Sin Wa. "
They put away all the softness and lightmindedness of women, and inured their womanish spirit to masculine ruthlessness.
2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Led by Jonathan Cooper, the intrepid mastermind of the creative crew, they made a commitment to write their own vision of the future.
The decision as to what is essential and material should rest with the masterminds in every department of thought; their choice should be made after the most mature deliberation, and the outcome of it fixed and determined.
Ella Minda Almarine Bloom!"
He was a man of unsullied character, commanding the respect and veneration of superior minds,--reserved and cold, perhaps; not a popular idol like Fox and O'Connell, but a leader of men.
When the children of Shem said one to another at Babel,--"Go to, let us build us a city and a tower whose top shall reach unto heaven," they typified a remarkable trait of the human mind,--a desire for a tangible and material exponent of itself in its most heroic moods.
They are men of good minds,--some of them quite literary; for we count, as belonging to our set, the lawyer, the schoolmaster, the doctor, men of business, men of no business, and sometimes even the minister.
"Mindst thou not, Sigurd, Of the speech betwixt us, When on one bed We both sat together, O my great king-- That thou wouldst come to me E'en from the hall of Hell, I to thee from the fair earth?
To judge of the relation of the human mind to the mind of lower beings, we must consider the superiority of man's body to other bodies; the more complex a body is, and the greater the variety of the affections of which it is capable, the better and more adapted for adequate cognition, the accompanying mind.--A result of the identity of soul and body is that the acts of our will are not free (Epist.
If we did not know, for example, the occasion which added the word chouse to the English language, we have little doubt that the twofold analogy of form and meaning would have led etymologists to the German kosen, (with the very common softening of the k to ch,) and that the derivation would have been perfectly satisfactory to most minds.--Tantrums would look like a word of popular coinage, and yet we find a respectable Old High German verb tantaron, delirare, (Graff, V. 437,) which may perhaps help us to make out the etymology of dander, in our vulgar expression of "getting one's dander up," which is equivalent to flying into a passion.--Jog, in the sense of going, (to jog along,) has a vulgar look.
Solitary musings, amidst such scenes, might no doubt be expected to nurse up the mind to the majesty of poetical conception,--(though it is remarkable, that all the greater poets lived or had lived, in the full current of society):--But the collision of equal minds,--the admonition of prevailing impressions--seems necessary to reduce its redundancies, and repress that tendency to extravagance or puerility, into which the self-indulgence and self-admiration of genius is so apt to be betrayed, when it is allowed to wanton, without awe or restraint, in the triumph and delight of its own intoxication.
When my friend commences upon one of those solemn anthems, which peradventure struck upon my heedless ear, rambling in the side aisles of the dim abbey, some five and thirty years since, waking a new sense, and putting a soul of old religion into my young apprehension--(whether it be that, in which the psalmist, weary of the persecutions of bad men, wisheth to himself dove's wings--or that other, which, with a like measure of sobriety and pathos, inquireth by what means the young man shall best cleanse his mind)--a holy calm pervadeth me.--I am for the time --rapt above earth, And possess joys not promised at my birth.
For example, if you have in the minds of children or servants associated honesty, industry, truthfulness, with the fear of hell-fire, then supposing this fear to become extinct in their minds,--which, being unfounded in truth, it is in constant risk of doing--the virtues associated with it are likely to be weakened exactly in proportion as that association was strong.
He is a most pleasant hand,--a fine, rattling fellow, has gone through life laughing at solemn apes; himself hugely literate, oppressively full of information in all stuff of conversation, from matter of fact to Xenophon and Plato; can talk Greek with Porson, politics with Thelwall, conjecture with George Dyer, nonsense with me, and anything with anybody; a great farmer, somewhat concerned in an agricultural magazine; reads no poetry but Shakspeare, very intimate with Southey, but never reads his poetry; relishes George Dyer, thoroughly penetrates into the ridiculous wherever found, understands the first time (a great desideratum in common minds),--you need never twice speak to him; does not want explanations, translations, limitations, as Professor Godwin does when you make an assertion; up to anything, down to everything, --whatever sapit hominem.
He doth bear his part, &c. The conception embodied in this passage may become more clear to the reader if its terms are pondered in connexion with the passage of Shelley's prose extracted on p. 56--'The existence of distinct individual minds,' &c. Keats, while a living man, had made the loveliness of the universe more lovely by expressing in poetry his acute and subtle sense of its beauties--by lavishing on it (as we say) 'the colours of his imagination,' He was then an 'individual mind'--according to the current, but (as Shelley held) inexact terminology.
Allen," he writes in 1813, "has lent me a quantity of Burns's unpublished letters.... What an antithetical mind!--tenderness, roughness--delicacy, coarseness-- sentiment, sensuality--soaring and grovelling--dirt and deity--all mixed up in that one compound of inspired clay!"
"Madam," says I, swellin up with accumulated rage, "langwish and rip and tare things as much as you mindter--you cant stuff this ere ballit box with illegal votes as long as Ime boss of it--that's what's the matter--and I want you to understand I mean bizzinezs."
Go, student, search, and if thou nothing find, Go search again; success is in the mind.--ALGON.
That is the thought you are to take for the Thought of the Eternal Mind,--that double-distilled falsity of a blockheadism from one who is false even as a blockhead!
