How are totrisk, nondiversifiable risk, and diversifiable risk related? why is nondiversifiable risk regarded the only relevant risk? do you agree ththis is correct?

How why relevant and related? is regarded are you the diversifiable totrisk, nondiversifiable is risk risk risk, correct? do nondiversifiable risk? ththis agree only. _R._ Nay, they require no definition; the meaning of both is obvious. We must endeavour to view them with the eyes of other {103} people, or as other people are likely to view them. I can forgive the dirt and sweat of a gipsey under a hedge, when I consider that the earth is his mother, the sun is his father. Our sympathy, therefore, with the man who has received the provocation, necessarily falls short of the passion which naturally animates him, not only upon account of those general causes which render all sympathetic passions inferior to the original ones, but upon account of that particular cause which is peculiar to itself, our opposite sympathy with another person. Thus he speaks of being “stabbed” {39} with laughter, of laughing oneself “into stitches”—an experience which Milton probably had in mind when he wrote of “laughter holding both his sides”—of the heart being almost broken “with extreme laughing” and of laughing oneself “to death”.[23] The American returns speak of a whole Iliad of evil after-effects: fatigue, weakness, sadness, giddiness, breathlessness and so forth. Mr. Another account is, that, at the same age, and in consequence of a like accident, he starved himself to death. “Oaths were sworn by the seven Maharshis, and by the gods, to make doubtful things manifest, and even Vasishtha sware an oath before the king Sudama, son of Piyavana, when Viswamitra accused him of eating a hundred children. Miss Shinn {219} tells us that, in the case of Ruth, the period of infantile gaiety has been followed by one of serious practicality, into which humour does not enter. Largely on the evidence of the two Humour plays, it is sometimes assumed that Jonson is occupied with types; typical exaggerations, or exaggerations of type. The motives by which I am impelled to the pursuit of my own welfare can no more be the result of a direct impression of the thing which is the object of desire, or aversion, of any positive communication between my present, and future feelings, or of a sort of hypostatical union between the interests of the being acting, and the being acted upon, than the motives by which I am interested in the welfare of others can be so. Such too, is the opinion arrived at by Col. He tries to find out beforehand whatever it is that you take a particular pride or pleasure in, that he may annoy your self-love in the tenderest point (as if he were probing a wound) and make you dissatisfied with yourself and your pursuits for several days afterwards. He will certainly hear thee. I may here remark, that it is absurd to suppose we can expect this, by moral or medical means singly,—they must always co-operate, and never be separated in the mind of him whose object is cure: and it is a most important and fearful consideration, that on their treatment depends the increase or diminution of their disease. In many governments the candidates for the highest stations are above the law; and, if they {60} can attain the object of their ambition, they have no fear of being called to account for the means by which they acquired it. It throws a new light not only on the folk songs of other nations, but on the general history of the growth of the poetic faculty. The revolution of the heavens, those of the Sun, Moon, and Five Planets, {389} by producing the vicissitudes of Day and Night, and of the Seasons, prevented this torpor and inactivity from reigning through the inferior parts of nature; inflamed by the rapidity of their circumvolutions, the element of Fire, and forced it violently downwards into the Air, into the Water, and into the Earth, and thereby produced those mixtures of the different elements which kept up the motion and circulation of the lower parts of Nature; occasioned, sometimes, the entire transmutation of one element into another, and sometimes the production of forms and species different from them all, and in which, though the qualities of them all might be found, they were so altered and attempered by the mixture, as scarce to be distinguishable. This style, though it may incline the credulous to gape and swallow everything, must make the judicious grieve, and the wary doubt. In 1868 at Verdiersville, Virginia, a suspected murderer was compelled to touch the body of a woman found murdered in a wood; and in 1869, at Lebanon, Illinois, the bodies of two murdered persons were exhumed and two hundred of the neighbors were marched past and made to touch them in the hope of identifying the criminals.[1164] In Germany, in the seventeenth century, there was a recognized formula for the administration of the ordeal. In Bearn the laws of the thirteenth century provide that in cases of debt under forty sous, where there was no testimony on either side, the claimant could substantiate his case by bringing forward one conjurator, while the defendant could rebut it with two.[272] A similar rule obtained in England in all actions arising from contracts and sales;[273] and in the laws of Soest in Westphalia, compiled at the end of the eleventh or the commencement of the twelfth century, an accusation of homicide could be proved by six conjurators swearing with the prosecutor, while if this failed the accused could then clear himself with eleven compurgators.[274] Throughout Germany, in the thirteenth century, we find the principle of accusing conjurators generally received, as is evident from the _juramentum supermortuum_ already referred to, and how are totrisk, nondiversifiable risk, and diversifiable risk related? why is nondiversifiable risk regarded the only relevant risk? do you agree ththis is correct? other provisions of the municipal law.[275] So thoroughly, indeed, was this established that, in some places, in prosecutions for highway robbery, arson, and other crimes, the accuser had a right to require every individual in court, from the judge to the spectator, to help him with an oath or to swear that he knew nothing of the matter, and even the attorney for the defendant was obliged to undergo the ceremony.[276] In Sweden it was likewise in use under the name of _jeff niteed_;[277] and in the compilation of the laws by Andreas, Archbishop of Lunden, in the thirteenth century, there is a curious provision for cases of secret murder by which the accuser could force nine men successively to undergo the hot-iron ordeal, after which, if thus far unsuccessful, he could still force a tenth man to trial on producing twelve conjurators to swear to the guilt of the accused—these conjurators, in case of acquittal, being each liable to a fine of three marks to the accused and as much to the church.[278] In Norway and Iceland, in certain cases of imputed crime, the accuser was bound to produce ten companions, of whom eight appeared simply as supporters, while two swore that they had heard the offence spoken of, but that they knew nothing about it of their own knowledge—the amount of weight attached to which asseveration how are totrisk, nondiversifiable risk, and diversifiable risk related? why is nondiversifiable risk regarded the only relevant risk? do you agree ththis is correct? is shown by the fact that the accused required only two conjurators to clear himself.[279] Perhaps the most careful valuation of the oath of a plaintiff is to be found in the Coutumier of Bordeaux, which provides that, in civil cases not exceeding four sols in amount, the claimant should substantiate his case by an oath on the Gospels in the Mayor’s Court; when from four to twenty sols were at stake, he was sworn on the altar of St. Poor David Deans! Let any one consider within himself, for example, what he means by the word _three_, which signifies neither three shillings, nor three pence, nor three men, nor three horses, but three in general; and he will easily satisfy himself that a word, which denotes so very metaphysical an abstraction, could not be either a very obvious or a very early invention. This is the harm that can be said of them: they themselves are doubtless best acquainted with the good, and are not too diffident to tell it. Jourdain’s ill-used wife. Many things that we are doing by laborious repetition, wearying ourselves and using up valuable material, might be made to “do themselves” if we only knew how to utilize tendencies and forces that are all about us, unsuspected. To those {345} who had no other idea of nature, besides what they derived from so confused an account of things, how agreeable must that system have appeared, which represented the Earth as distinguished into land and water, self-balanced and suspended in the centre of the universe, surrounded by the elements of Air and Ether, and covered by eight polished and crystalline Spheres, each of which was distinguished by one or more beautiful and luminous bodies, and all of which revolved round their common centre, by varied, but by equable and proportionable motions. One is as remarkable for mildness and lenity, as another is notorious for harshness and severity. Foreign war and civil faction are the two situations which afford the most splendid opportunities for the display of public spirit. The Tupis may be an energetic and skillful people, but with their language they can never take a position as masters in the realm of ideas. The former may be trusted upon many occasions; the latter very seldom upon any. 2. Though the breach of justice, on the contrary, exposes to punishment, the observance of the rules of that virtue seems scarce to deserve any reward. Abbott, Professor F. _Ros._ With lawyers in the vacation; for they sleep between term and term, and then they perceive not how time moves.’—_As You Like It_, Act III. civil, religious, scientific, political, artistic … One needs only to think how one laughs at Moses and his purchase of spectacles in the _Vicar of Wakefield_, or at the disfigurement of the hero in _Cyrano_. An interesting example of this is given at the beginning of the “Manuscrito Hieratico,” recently published by the Spanish government.[213] It is the more valuable as an example, as the picture writing is translated into Nahuatl and written in Spanish characters. Hungarians came to us from far distant parts of the city only to find empty shelves. And after it is all over, ask yourself, Now what shall I do with all this? Several accounts of Grijalva’s voyage have been preserved, but they make no distinct reference to the method of writing they found in use. In 1681, a royal Declaration sets forth that, in the jurisdiction of Grenoble, judges were in the habit of refusing to listen to the accused, and of condemning him unheard, an abuse which was prohibited for the future. How about the vast number of persons occupied in amusing or trying to amuse the public–employees of theatres, recreation parks, and so on? Albert Seqaqknind Anthony, an educated Delaware Indian, then assistant missionary to the Six Nations, in Ontario, Canada. He still did not execute it; and though he might deserve all the approbation which is due to a magnanimous and great design, he still wanted the actual merit of having performed a great action. They are in a pitiable dilemma—having to reconcile the hopeless reversion of court-favour with the most distant and delicate attempts at popularity. But though we should take away all power of imagination from the human mind, my own feelings must leave behind them certain traces, or representations of themselves retaining the same properties, and having, the same immediate connection with the conscious principle. I do not dispute their virtue, I doubt their sensibility. Swift could not have shown us the absurdities in our social and political institutions half as well by any direct attack on them as he has shown us by the indirect attack in _Gulliver’s Travels_. As already remarked, the origin of the custom is to be traced to the principle of the unity of families. There was a great scramble among the legatees, a codicil to a will with large bequests unsigned, and that last triumph of the dead or dying over those who survive—hopes raised and defeated without a possibility of retaliation, or the smallest use in complaint. The proper pleasure which we derive from those two imitative arts, so far from being the effect of deception, is altogether incompatible with it. Throughout the American continent generally, the natives were not markedly brachycephalic. You are sensible of effort without any repose—no careless pleasantry—no traits of character or touches from nature—every thing is laboured or overdone. We have been forgetting it since the dawn of civilization, and we inherit our forgetfulness from the twilight of ignorance that preceded it. {113} Our uncertainty concerning our own merit, and our anxiety to think favourably of it, should together naturally enough make us desirous to know the opinion of other people concerning it; to be more than ordinarily elevated when that opinion is favourable, and to be more than ordinarily mortified when it is otherwise: but they should not make us desirous either of obtaining the favourable, or of avoiding the unfavourable opinion, by intrigue and cabal. The man who laughs has at most a vague expectation that outsiders should be equal to those of his own set. These all have in them the elements of romance; and when they too have passed, as God grant they may, they will doubtless take their place in the equipment of the poetical romanticist. By changing the object of our admiration, we secretly persuade ourselves that there is no such thing as excellence. So, too, does a young ourang. Not that I can, or ought to yield, that we are by Nature less enabled for such an Enterpize, than Men are; which I hope at least to shew plausible Reasons for, before I have done: But because through the Usurpation of Men, and the Tyranny of Custom (here in _England_ especially) there are at most but few, who are by Education, and acquir’d Wit, or Letters sufficiently quallified for such an Undertaking. When we follow the winding alleys of some happily situated and well laid out garden, we are presented with a succession of landscapes, which are sometimes gay, sometimes gloomy, and sometimes calm and serene; if the mind is in its natural state, it suits itself to the objects which successively present themselves, and varies in some degree its mood and present humour with every variation of the scene. What does not touch the heart, or come home to the feelings, goes comparatively for little or nothing. In the same way an illustration by how are totrisk, nondiversifiable risk, and diversifiable risk related? why is nondiversifiable risk regarded the only relevant risk? do you agree ththis is correct? Mary Smith, clipped from a trashy story in a ten-cent magazine, has little value–zero value, perhaps. Each of these _katuns_ was presided over by a chief or king, that being the meaning of the word _ahau_. Statuary and History Painting can represent but a single instant of the action which they mean to imitate: the causes which prepared, the consequences which followed, the situation of that single instant are altogether beyond the compass of their imitation. He would be incorrigible to falls and bruises. Now, it is obvious that there are great and evident objections to being a librarian of to-day and corresponding advantages in being one of the other kinds. What is there in common, one might say, between a Peer of the Realm, and ‘that sea-beast,’ of those ‘Created hugest that swim the ocean-stream?’ Yet Burke has knit the two ideas together, and no man can put them asunder. Hammond Shandy. As I grow older, it fades; or else, the stronger stimulus of writing takes off the edge of it. Peace reigns and there is a general state of satisfaction all around–the satisfaction of blissful ignorance and of the day before yesterday. The man who barely abstains from violating either the person, or the estate, or the reputation of his neighbours, has surely very little positive merit. But almost all those other tenses are in the English eked out by other auxiliary verbs, so that there is in this language scarce even the remains of a conjugation. Justice Shallow answered in some sort to this description of a retired Cockney and indigenous country-gentleman. Let me try to explain in a few words what they are, what they tell, and what mistakes people make about them. c. Impressions of a peculiar and accidental nature, of which few traces are left, and which return seldom or never, fade in the distance, and are consigned to obscurity,—while those that belong to a given and definite class are kept up, and assume a constant and tangible form, from familiarity and habit. But were it as well written as I could wish it, or as the Subject wou’d bear, and deserves; I see no reason why our Sex shou’d be robb’d of the Honour of it; Since there have been Women in all Ages, whose Writings might vie with those of the greatest Men, as the Present Age as well as past can testifie. in the composition of the brain, as if these were _occult_ qualities, and to reduce every thing to positive and ostensible quantity; not considering that quantity alone accounts for no difference of character or operation. ] The upper figure he reads _kinil_, the lower _cim-il_. The superiority which they easily discovered in them, above the rude essays which {354} their own nation had yet had time to produce, and which were such, we may suppose, as arise every where in the first infancy of science, necessarily determined them to embrace their systems, particularly that of Astronomy: neither were they ever afterwards able to throw off their authority. Hudson was the first to attempt a clear definition of the role and nature of the two elements which constitute the dual mind. Robinson, “wriggle about, fencing with its arms and dodging the attacks of its playmate . Many libraries refuse to allow the holding of religious meetings in their buildings, probably for a similar reason. Superstition may perhaps account for the one, and poverty and barbarism for the other.[25] Laziness has a great deal to do in the question, and this again is owing to a state of feeling sufficient to itself, and rich in enjoyment without the help of action. The fury of our own passions constantly calls us back to our own place, where every thing appears magnified and misrepresented by self-love. If we accept the theory that man as a species spread from one primal centre, and in the higher plasticity of his early life separated into well defined races, which became unalterably fixed not much later than the close of the glacial epoch—and this theory appears to be that now most agreeable to anthropologists—then the earliest Americans made their advent on this continent as immigrants. I have no desire to dwell here on the question of the desirability of such connection; but I cannot refrain from saying, at the risk of losing all of my civil service-reform friends, that I regard the present methods of bringing about appointment for merit only as makeshifts, well designed to defeat the efforts of politicians and others who wish to see appointments made for other reasons, but necessary only so long as those efforts are likely to continue. How or when it came to Europe is not known. The Sense of Touching alone {439} seems not to be confined to any particular organ, but to be diffused through almost every part of the body; if we except the hair and the nails of the fingers and toes, I believe through every part of it. —– CHAP. A few years more and he was President of the United States. Leigh Hunt and Mr. In the first place, we are functioning more and more as community centers, but there is enormous room for advance. Nobody, I believe, ever thought it necessary to prove that compassion was such. Those words, however, might not, and probably would not, for a long time have any meaning, but might resemble the syllables which we make use of in _fol-faing_, or the {416} _derry-down-down_ of our common ballads; and serve only to assist the voice in forming sounds proper to be modulated into melody, and to be lengthened or shortened according to the time and measure of the tune. The contrast of the satirical and the humorous point of view may be conveniently studied by glancing at the current {385} and much-discussed distinction between wit and humour. As our sense, therefore, of the propriety of conduct arises from what I shall call a direct sympathy with the affections and motives of the person who acts, so our sense of its merit arises from what I shall call an indirect sympathy with the gratitude of the person who is, if I may say so, acted upon.
