The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

By: Charles Johnston

Introduction: The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are in themselves exceedingly brief, less than ten pages of large type in the original. Yet they contain the essence of practical wisdom, set forth in admirable order and detail. The theme, if the present interpreter be right, is the great regeneration, the birth of the spiritual from the psychical man: the same theme which Paul so wisely and eloquently set forth in writing to his disciples in Corinth, the theme of all mystics in all lands.

What Every Woman Knows

By: James M. Barrie

James Wylie is about to make a move on the dambrod, and in the little Scotch room there is an awful silence befitting the occasion. James with his hand poised?for if he touches a piece he has to play it, Alick will see to that?raises his red head suddenly to read Alick?s face. His father, who is Alick, is pretending to be in a panic lest James should make this move. James grins heartlessly, and his fingers are about to close on the ?man? when some instinct of self-preser...

The Sea Wolf

By: Jack London

Chapter I. I scarcely know where to begin, though I sometimes facetiously place the cause of it all to Charley Furuseth?s credit. He kept a summer cottage in Mill Valley, under the shadow of Mount Tamalpais, and never occupied it except when he loafed through the winter mouths and read Nietzsche and Schopenhauer to rest his brain. When summer came on, he elected to sweat out a hot and dusty existence in the city and to toil incessantly. Had it not been my custom to run u...

Cousin Phillis

By: Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell

It is a great thing for a lad when he is first turned into the independence of lodgings. I do not think I ever was so satisfied and proud in my life as when, at seventeen, I sate down in a little three-cornered room above a pastry-cook?s shop in the county town of Eltham. My father had left me that afternoon, after delivering himself of a few plain precepts, strongly expressed, for my guidance in the new course of life on which I was entering. I was to be a clerk under t...

A Strange Discovery

By: Charles Romyn Dake

It was once my good fortune to assist in a discovery of some importance to lovers of literature, and to searchers after the new and wonderful. As nearly a quarter of a century has since elapsed, and as two others shared in the discovery, it may seem to the reader strange that the general public has been kept in ignorance of an event apparently so full of interest. Yet this silence is quite explicable; for of the three participants none has heretofore written for publicat...

By: Higginson, Thomas Wentworth, 1823-1911

THE MAROONS OF JAMAICA. The Maroons! It was a word of peril once; and terror spread along the skirts of the blue mountains of Jamaica when some fresh foray of those unconquered guerrillas swept down from the outlying plantations, startled the Assembly from its order, Gen. Williamson from his billiards, and Lord Balcarres from his diplomatic ease, endangering, according to the official statement, ?public credit,? ?civil rights,? and ?the prosperity, if not the very existe...

Pragmatism : A New Name for Some Old Ways of Thinking : Popular Le...

By: William James

Preface: The lectures that follow were delivered at the Lowell Institute in Boston in November and December, 1906, and in January, 1907, at Columbia University, in New York. They are printed as delivered, without developments or notes. The pragmatic movement, so-called?I do not like the name, but apparently it is too late to change it?seems to have rather suddenly precipitated itself out of the air. A number of tendencies that have always existed in philosophy have all a...

The Complete Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley Volume I

By: Percy Bysshe Shelley

Preface: This edition of his ?Poetical Works? contains all Shelley?s ascertained poems and fragments of verse that have hitherto appeared in print. In preparing the volume I have worked as far as possible on the principle of recognizing the editio princeps as the primary textual authority. I have not been content to reprint Mrs. Shelley?s recension of 1839, or that of any subsequent editor of the ?Poems? The present text is the result of a fresh collation of the early ed...

The Philosopher's Joke

By: Jerome, Jerome Klapka, 1859-1927

Myself, I do not believe this story. Six persons are persuaded of its truth; and the hope of these six is to convince themselves it was an hallucination. Their difficulty is there are six of them. Each one alone perceives clearly that it never could have

Charlotte's Inheritance

LENOBLE OF BEAUBOCAGE. In the days when the Bourbon reigned over Gaul, before the ?simple, sensuous, passionate? verse of Alfred de Musset had succeeded the debonnaire Muse of Beranger in the affections of young France, in days when the site of the Trocadero was a remote and undiscovered country, and the word ?exposition? unknown in the Academic dictionary, and the Gallic Augustus destined to rebuild the city yet an exile, a young law-student boarded, in common with othe...

The Crossing

By: Sir Winston S. Churchill

I was born under the Blue Ridge, and under that side which is blue in the evening light, in a wild land of game and forest and rushing waters. There, on the borders of a creek that runs into the Yadkin River, in a cabin that was chinked with red mud, I came into the world a subject of King George the Third, in that part of his realm known as the province of North Carolina. The cabin reeked of corn-pone and bacon, and the odor of pelts. It had two shakedowns, on one of wh...
