Pàgina 381 - OF THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST Christ did truly rise again from death, and took again his body, with flesh, bones, and all things appertaining to the perfection of Man's nature; wherewith he ascended into Heaven, and there sitteth, until he return to judge all Men at the last day.
Pàgina 436 - I felt that it might be worth my while to expend the labour of at least ten (or it might be fifteen) years to come. But then it is fair to say that this was because I felt a problem to have been at that moment solved — an intellectual want relieved — which had haunted me for at least fifteen years before.
Pàgina 435 - Tomorrow will be the fifteenth birthday of the Quaternions. They started into life or light, full-grown, on the 16th of October, 1843, as I was walking with Lady Hamilton to Dublin, and came up to Brougham Bridge. That is to say, I then and there felt the galvanic circuit of thought close...
Pàgina 435 - Canal, to which she had perhaps been driven; and although she talked with me now and then, yet an under-current of thought was going on in my mind, which gave at last a result, whereof it is not too much to say that I felt at once the importance. An electric circuit seemed to close; and a spark flashed forth, the herald (as I foresaw immediately) of many long years to come of definitely directed thought and work, by myself if spared, and at all events on the part of others, if I should ever be allowed...
Pàgina 410 - Quillinan's had appeared. He knew very well that I should have disapproved of his condescending to notice anything that a man so deplorably tormented by ungovernable passion as that unhappy creature might eject. His character may be given in two or three words ; a madman, a bad man, yet a man of genius, as many a madman is.
Pàgina 446 - I am convinced, however, that the introduction of the ideas, as distinguished from the operations and methods of Quaternions, will be of great use to us in the study of all parts of our subject, and especially in electrodynamics...
Pàgina 231 - I were several years younger, out of friendship to you mainly, I would sit down to the task of giving a body to my notions upon the essentials of Poetry — a subject which could not be properly treated without adverting to the other branches of Fine Art; but at present with so much before me that I could wish to do in verse, and the melancholy fact brought daily more and more home to my conviction, that intellectual labour, by its action on the brain and nervous system, is injurious to the bodily...
Pàgina 35 - Your lecture I have read with much pleasure. It is philosophical, and eloquent, and instructive, and makes me regret — as I have had a thousand occasions of doing — that I did not apply to mathematics in my youth. It is now, and has long been, too late to make up for the deficiency. I fear that Mr. Coleridge is more than usually unwell : a letter from a London friend informs me that he is still confined to his bed. I hope, however, there is some mistake here, as not very long ago he attended...
