Though I look old, yet I am strong and lusty;
for in my youth I never did apply hot and rebellious liquors in my blood; and did not, with unbashful forehead, woo the means of weakness and debility: therefore my age is as a lusty winter, frosty but kindly.
Among the numerous luxuries of the table.
..coffee may be considered as one of the most valuable. It excites cheerfulness without intoxication; and the pleasing flow of spirits which it occasions...is never followed by sadness, languor or debility.
In a republic, that paradise of debility, the politician is a petty tyrant who obeys the laws.
