They will come to know! 015.004 And We destroyed no township but there was a known decree for it. 015.005 No nation can outstrip its term nor can they lag behind. 015.006 And they say: O thou unto whom the Reminder is revealed, lo! thou art in...

By: Thomas Carlyle

The Complete Works of James Whitcomb Riley, Volume 1

By: James Whitcomb Riley

Ich sehe seit einer Weile ein, dass ich Menschen, die in der Entwicklung ihres Wesens zart und suchend sind, streng davor warnen muss, in den Aufzeichnungen Analogien fuer das zu finden, was sie durchmachen; wer der Verlockung nachgibt und diesem Buch parallel geht, muss notwendig abwaerts kommen; erfreulich wird es wesentlich nur denen werden, die es gewissermassen gegen den Strom zu lesen unternehmen.

The Origins of Contemporary France : The Ancient Regime

By: Hippolyte A. Taine

INTRODUCTION: Why should we fetch Taine's work up from its dusty box in the basement of the national library? First of all because his realistic views of our human nature, of our civilization and of socialism as well as his dark premonitions of the 20th century were proven correct. Secondly because we may today with more accuracy call his work...

The Circus Boys on the Flying Rings, Or Making the Start in the Sa...

By: Edgar B.P. Darlington

CHAPTER I. THE LURE OF THE CIRCUS I say, Phil, I can do that. Do what, Teddy? A cartwheel in the air like that fellow is doing in the picture on the billboard there. Oh, pshaw! You only think you can. Besides, that's not a cartwheel; that's a double somersault. It's a real stunt, let me tell you. Why, I can do a cartwheel myself. But up in the air like that—well, I don't know. I guess not. I'd be willing to try it, though, if I had something below to catch me, added the ...

The Prophets

By: Prophet Muhammad

021.001 Their reckoning draweth nigh for mankind, while they turn away in heedlessness. 021.002 Never cometh there unto them a new reminder from their Lord but they listen to it while they play, 021.003 With hearts preoccupied. And they confer in secret. The wrong-doers say: Is this other than a mortal like you ? Will ye then succumb to magic when ye see (it) ? 021.004 He saith: My Lord knoweth what is spoken in the heaven and the earth. He is the Hearer, the Knower. 021...

The Pilgrimage

By: Prophet Muhammad

022.001 O mankind! Fear your Lord. Lo! the earthquake of the Hour (of Doom) is a tremendous thing. 022.002 On the day when ye behold it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling and every pregnant one will be delivered of her burden, and thou (Muhammad) wilt see mankind as drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but the Doom of Allah will be strong (upon them). 022.003 Among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge, and followeth each froward de...

The Believers

023.001 Successful indeed are the believers 023.002 Who are humble in their prayers, 023.003 And who shun vain conversation, 023.004 And who are payers of the poor-due; 023.005 And who guard their modesty - 023.006 Save from their wives or the (slaves) that their right hands possess, for then they are not blameworthy, 023.007 But whoso craveth beyond that, such are transgressors - 023.008 And who are shepherds of their pledge and their covenant, 023.009 And who pay heed ...

The Criterion

By: Prophet Muhammad

025.001 Blessed is He Who hath revealed unto His slave the Criterion (of right and wrong), that he may be a warner to the peoples. 025.002 He unto Whom belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, He hath chosen no son nor hath He any partner in the Sovereignty. He hath created everything and hath meted out for it a measure. 025.003 Yet they choose beside Him other gods who create naught but are themselves created, and possess not hurt nor profit for themselve...

026.001 Ta. Sin. Mim. 026.002 These are revelations of the Scripture that maketh plain. 026.003 It may be that thou tormentest thyself (O Muhammad) because they believe not. 026.004 If We will, We can send down on them from the sky a portent so that their necks would remain bowed before it. 026.005 Never cometh there unto them a fresh reminder from the Beneficent One, but they turn away from it. 026.006 Now they have denied (the Truth); but there will come unto them tidi...

The Spider

By: Prophet Muhammad

Thus Allah knoweth those who are sincere, and knoweth those who feign. 029.004 Or do those who do ill-deeds imagine that they can outstrip Us ?
