Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ...equity, strict impartiality, there can be no safety and no freedom. Liberty can only dwell in safety beneath the roof of justice.

Utilitarianism and expediency may altogether fail to see a truth in divine interpositions in human affairs, but let the utilitarian deny inspiration or revelation as he will, if he be but a student of human nature, as an anthropologist and advocate of pure ethics, he must perforce admit the divinity of the useful, the safe, the humane; in a word, of all that conduces to consolidation and to liberty.
