文学类 Jane Eyre
John Reed was a schoolboy of fourteen years old; four years older than I, for I was but ten; large and stout for his age, with a dingy and unwholesome skin; thick lineaments in a spacious visage, heavy limbs and large extremities. He gorged himself habitually at table, which made him bilious, and gave him a dim and bleared eye with flabby cheeks. He ought now to have been at school; but his mamma had taken him home for a month or two, "on account of his delicate health." Mr.Miles, the master, affirmed that he would do very well if he had fewer cakes and sweetmeats sent him from home; but the mother's heart turned from an opinion so harsh, and inclined rather to the more refined idea that John's sallowness was owing to over-application, and, perhaps, to pining after home.

文学类 Bleak House
When the practice was concluded, Caddy's husband made himself ready to go out of town to a school, and Caddy ran away to get ready to go out with me. I sat in the ball-room in the interval, contemplating the apprentices. The two out-door boys went upon the staircase to put on their half-boots, and pull the in-door boy's hair; as I judged from the nature of his objections. Returning with their jackets buttoned, and their pumps stuck in them, they then produced packets of could bread and meat, and bivouacked under a painted lyre on the wall. The little gauzy girl, having whisked her sandals into the reticule and put on a trodden-down pair of shoes, shook her head into the dowdy bonnet at one shake; and answering my inquiry whether she liked dancing, by replying, "Not with boys," tied it across her chin and went home contemptuous.

人文学术类 A Global History
Despite their abundant first-hand contact with and knowledge of nature, early humans had little explanatory knowledge; they could give no naturalistic explanation if floods or droughts came or if the hunting or fishing was poor. Not knowing how to cope with nature by naturalistic means, they had to resort to the supernatural. They turned to magic and spent much time in efforts to persuade or fool nature into yielding a greater abundance. By making each useful animal or plant the totem of a particular group, and by using images, symbols, and imitative dances, primitive people believed that the animal or food could be encouraged to flourish and multiply. As long as the rules of the totems were strictily observed, the reproducation of the group and of its food supply could be assured.

First, imagine a world before the angel in which all resources can work together, a world with a single language and a single currency - say, one consisting of red banknotes. This world's economy would be one big baby-sitting co-op; therefore, expanding the quantity fo money could boost output up to a point, but beyond that point such expansion would be counterproductive and would usually be dissipated in inflation. (True, the actual world economy is unthinkably immense - gross world product is probably about $25 trillion. The U.S. economy, with its $7 trillion GDP, is unthinkably immense even by itself - yet it can usefully be thought of as a baby -sitting co-op. It is hard to see that going up a notch in scale would make a qualitative difference.)

社会学术类 The Politics of Global Governance
Clearly, the fluidity of the balance of power ensures that the fortunes of specific IGOs or other international institutions rise and fall in tune with the ephemeral interests of the powers of the time (Garr, 1964; Gilpin, 1981; Grieco, 1990). Neither realist nor neorealist theory allows much room for predictions about the rise or fall of specific coalitions of great military powers. While realists explain the demise of the League of Nations in terms of its failure to reflect the balance of power, it's hard to predict exactly when the League would cease to function from their analyses. Waltz (1979, p. 124), for example, does not indicate when military coalitions will change in relationship to changes in the distribution of power, other than to assert that such changes will occur periodically.
