Page 223 - Justice is a name for certain classes of moral rules, which concern the essentials of human well-being more nearly, and are therefore of more absolute obligation, than any other rules for the guidance of life...
Page 545 - Thin, thin the pleasant human noises grow; And faint the city gleams; Rare the lone pastoral huts: marvel not thou! The solemn peaks but to the stars are known, But to the stars, and the cold lunar beams: Alone the sun arises, and alone Spring the great streams.
