Sivu 12 - For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates ; a land of oil olive, and honey...
Sivu 31 - By his admirable contrivance, it has become a thing stupendous alike for its force and its flexibility — for the prodigious power which it can exert, and the ease, and precision, and ductility with which that power can be varied, distributed and applied. The trunk of an elephant, that can pick up a pin or rend an oak, is as nothing to it.
Sivu 12 - Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy GOD chasteneth thee. Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy GOD, to walk in His ways, and to fear Him. For the LORD thy GOD bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills...
Sivu 31 - It has increased indefinitely the mass of human comforts and enjoyments, and rendered cheap and accessible, all over the world, the materials of wealth and prosperity.

Sivu 7 - Westward the course of empire takes its way ; The first four acts already past, The fifth shall close the drama with the day ; Time's noblest offspring is the last.
Sivu 26 - England in which the role of coal was of such evidently crucial importance: "... while other nations subsist upon the annual and ceaseless income of the harvest, we are drawing more and more upon a capital which yields no annual interest, but once turned to heat and light and motive power, is gone for ever...
Sivu 31 - It was our improved steamengine, in short, that fought the battles of Europe, and exalted and sustained through the late tremendous contest, the political greatness of our land. It is the same great power which now enables us to pay the interest of our debt, and to maintain the arduous struggle in which we are still engaged (1819) with the skill and capital of countries less oppressed with taxation.
Sivu 31 - There is no branch of industry that has not been indebted to them ; and in all the most material, they have not only widened most magnificently the field of its exertions, but multiplied a thousandfold the amount of its productions.
