On Memory and Reminiscence

By: Aristotle

WE have, in the next place, to treat of Memory and Remembering, considering its nature, its cause, and the part of the soul to which this experience, as well as that of Recollecting, belongs. For the persons who possess a retentive memory are not identical with those who excel in power of recollection; indeed, as a rule, slow people have a good memory, whereas those who are quick-witted and clever are better at recollecting.

The Celestial Hierarchy

By: Dionysius

That every divine illumination, while going forth with love in various ways to the objects of its forethought, remains one. Nor is this all: it also unifies the things illuminated. 'Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of Lights.' [James 1:17] Moreover, every divine procession of radiance from the Father, while constantly bounteously flowing to us, fills us anew as though with a unifying power, by recalling us to things abov...

The Smoky God

By: Willis George Emerson

Excerpt: I FEAR the seemingly incredible story which I am about to relate will be regarded as the result of a distorted intellect superinduced, possibly, by the glamour of unveiling a marvelous mystery, rather than a truthful record of the unparalleled experiences related by one Olaf Jansen, whose eloquent madness so appealed to my imagination that all thought of an analytical criticism has been effectually dispelled.

Russia

By: Donald Mackenzie Wallace

Preface: The first edition of this work, published early in January, 1877, contained the concentrated results of my studies during an uninterrupted residence of six years in Russia from the beginning of 1870 to the end of 1875. Since that time I have spent in the European and Central Asian provinces, at different periods, nearly two years more; and in the intervals I have endeavoured to keep in touch with the progress of events. My observations thus extend over a period of thirty?five years.

The Story of Perpetua

Excerpt: AND as Paul was being led away to be beheaded at a place about three miles from the city, he was in irons. And there were three soldiers guarding him who were of a great family. And when they had gone out of the gate about the length of a bow?shot, there met them a God?fearing woman; and she, seeing Paul dragged along in irons, had compassion on him, and wept bitterly. And the name of the woman was called Perpetua; and she was one?eyed. And Paul, seeing her weep...

The Last House in C Street

By: Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

I am not a believer in ghosts in general; I see no good in them. They come — that is, are reported to come — so irrelevantly, purposelessly — so ridiculously, in short — that one's common sense as regards this world, one's supernatural sense of the other, are alike revolted. Then nine out of ten 'capital ghost stories' are so easily accounted for; and in the tenth, when all natural explanation fails, one who has discovered the extraordinary difficulty there is in all soc...

Sir Cleges

By: Jessie L. Weston

Excerpt: Listen lordings, and ye shall hear of the fathers that went afore us; hardy men they were and valiant. ?Twas in the days of King Uther, who was father unto King Arthur (fair was he to look upon); he had a knight, hight Sir Cleges, one of the Round Table; none was there doughtier of deeds. He was a man of tall stature, thereto full fair of feature, and withal of great might. A more courteous knight than he might not be found throughout the realm, so gentle was he...

Hadda Padda

By: Godmunder Kamban

Foreword: The value of this play lies in the fact that, beneath the surface, it vibrates with the quivering, intensely pulsating forces of life. The speeches breathe. The leading characters not only have perspicuity, but each has its own representative melodic theme. There is as music under the text, a constant accompaniment of exquisite passion, rising, sinking, and now rising once more, in a struggle with vacillating sensual pleasure and base inclination to supersede o...

Prester John

By: John Buchan

I mind as if it were yesterday my first sight of the man. Little I knew at the time how big the moment was with destiny, or how often that face seen in the fitful moonlight would haunt my sleep and disturb my waking hours. But I mind yet the cold grue of terror I got from it, a terror which was surely more than the due of a few truant lads breaking the Sabbath with their play.

By: Victor Speer

Five Little Peppers and Their Friends

By: Margaret Sidney

Preface: There were so many interesting friends of the Five Little Peppers, whose lives were only the faintest of outlines in the series ending when Phronsie was grown up, that a volume devoted to this outer circle has been written to meet the persistent demand. Herein the author records many happenings that long ago Ben and Polly, Joel and David told her. And even Phronsie whispered some of it confidentially into the listening ear. Tell about Rachel, please, she begged;...

Drake's Great Armada

By: Walter Biggs

Introduction: Nearly five years elapsed between Drake?s return from his Famous Voyage and the despatch of the formidable armament commemorated in the following pages. During the last of these years the march of events had been remarkably rapid. Gilbert, who had been empowered by Elizabeth, in the year of Frobisher?s last expedition, to found colonies in America, had sailed for that purpose to Newfoundland (1583), and had perished at sea on his way homeward. Raleigh, who ...

The Upturned Face

By: Stephen Crane

Excerpt: Lean shouted back to his little line, and two men came slowly, one with a pick, one with a shovel. They started in the direction of the Rostina sharp?shooters. Bullets cracked near their ears. ?Dig here,? said Lean gruffly. The men, thus caused to lower their glances to the turf, became hurried and frightened merely because they could not look to see whence the bullets came. The dull beat of the pick striking the earth sounded amid the swift snap of close bullets.

The Sealed Room

By: Bernhard Severin Ingemann

For many years there stood in a side street in Kiel an unpretentious old frame house which had a forbidding, almost sinister appearance, with its old-fashioned balcony and its overhanging upper stories. For the last twenty years the house had been occupied by a greatly respected widow, Madame Wolff, to whom the dwelling had come by inheritance. She lived there quietly with her one daughter, in somewhat straitened circumstances. What gave the house a mysterious notoriety,...

The Damnation of Theron Ware, Or, Illumination

By: Harold Frederic

Excerpt: Chapter One. No such throng had ever before been seen in the building during all its eight years of existence. People were wedged together most uncomfortably upon the seats; they stood packed in the aisles and overflowed the galleries; at the back, in the shadows underneath these galleries, they formed broad, dense masses about the doors, through which it would be hopeless to attempt a passage. The light, given out from numerous tin?lined circles of flaring gas?...

Castle of Doom

By: Maxwell Grant

THICK, smoke-laden fog had gained its grip on London. Night, descending like some black umbra through the mist, had added sinister gloom. Street lamps, their rays cast back upon them, were nothing more than blurred orbs of illumination that seemed to hang in mid-air. Silence was heaviest upon a narrow street not far from Piccadilly Circus. This thoroughfare lay somewhere between the huge stores of Regent Street and the quality shops of Bond Street. The very obscurity of ...
