Welch. 1983. "Religiousity and Deviance: Toward a Contingency Theory of Constraining Effects."

We may, however, just hint to planters, as unpoetical as ourselves, that in achieving such a task as we have proposed to them, nature will, in spite of them, realize, in many places, the wishes breathed by improvers of a different description. I am not sure if this was concious but it is clearly there. These are principles which connect the farm with the pleasure-ground or demesne.---Lastly, we have Pope's celebrated apology for the profuse expense bestowed on the house and grounds of Canons---if Canons, indeed, was meant--- ``Yet hence the poor are clothed, the hungry fed; Health to himself, and to his children bread, The labourer bears.'' Horace Walpole, in a short essay, distinguished by his usual accuracy of information, and ornamented by his wit and taste, has traced the history of gardening, in a pictural sense, from the mere art of horticulture to the creation of scenery of a more general character, extending beyond the narrow limits of the proper garden and orchard.

However, some Muslims are uneasy with dead bodies being cut up. When his companion's travelling pistols (not those of the savoury materials above mentioned) were handed into the carriage, the historian made an observation at once humorous and affecting. ``You shall have your humour, John, and fight with as many highwaymen as you please; for I have too little of life left to be an object worth saving.'' With more profound raillery he supposed that he himself, John Home, and Adam Fergusson, who studied Roman history with Roman feeling and Roman spirit, had been Sovereigns of three adjacent states and John Home thus states in one of his letters the result of his friend's reflections:--- ``He knew very well, he said (having often disputed the point with us,) the great opinion we had of military virtues as essential to every state; that from these sentiments rooted in us, he was certain he would be attacked and interrupted in his projects of cultivating, improving, and civilizing mankind by the arts of peace; that he comforted himself with reflecting, that from our want of economy and order in our affairs, we should be continually in want of money; whilst he would have his finances in excellent condition, his magazines well filled, and naval stores in abundance; but that his final stroke of policy, upon which he depended, was to give one of us a large subsidy to fall upon the other, which would infallibly secure to him peace and quiet and, after a long war, would probably terminate in his being master of all the three kingdoms.'' ---Vol. i., pp. 181, 182.
