If every employer, or the state itself, would give a clean marriage a preferred position in the social and economic scale, and, by helping to meet the cost of it, recognize in a substantial way the value to the race of a family of vigorous children, an important factor in youthful sexual laxity would be robbed of its power.

It is difficult to judge from the reports of these early investigations who was the first to recognize the difference between the spark and the arc.

And there is some radical wrong where the noblest manhood and womanhood are not appreciated and reverenced. Not to recognize genuine worth is the mark of a superficial and vulgar character.

Nevertheless, the common sense of mankind, which in questions of this sort seldom goes far wrong, will always recognize a distinction between crimes which originate in an inordinate zeal for the commonwealth, and crimes which originate in selfish cupidity.

Or we might settle near enough to General Putnam's colony to ...

These incidents conform to truths we recognize. And not only in the fiction that clings close to actuality do we feel a sense of truth.
