The Cotton Mill invented in England , within the last twenty years forms an item of great importance in the general mass of national industry ….To this invention is to be attributed essentially the immense progress, which has been so suddenly made in Great Britain in the various fabrics of cotton.
John Stuart Mill, By a mighty effort of will, Overcame his natural bonhomie And wrote'Principles of Political Economy'.Edmund Clerihew Bentley
I protest against deference to any man, whether John Stuart Mill, or Adam Smith, or Aristotle, being allowed to check inquiry. Our science has become far too much a stagnant one, in which opinions rather than experience and reason are appealed to.william stanley jevons
Mill sought to strengthen his defence of trade unions not by denying their possible monopoly effects, but by an appeal to the principle of laisser faire itself. To prevent the formation of corporate unions was, he thought, to interfere with a right obviously included in the general rule of freedom of contract.roll, eric, baron roll of ipsden
I believe that the harm which Mill has done to the world by the passage in his book on Political Economy in which he favours the principle of Protection in young communities, has outweighed all the good which may have been caused by his other writings.Richard Cobden
Like John Stuart Mill, he would often begin by stating the other side better than its advocate had stated it himself.learned hand
However human, envy is certainly not one of the sources of discontent that a free society can eliminate. It is probably one of the essential conditions for the preservation of such a society that we do not countenance envy, not sanction its demands by camouflaging it as social justice, but treat it, in the words of John Stuart Mill, as "the most anti-social and evil of all passions.friedrich hayek
The change began with John Stuart Mill and the Utopians . When Mill pointed out that economics had no ultimate solution to the problem of distribution , that society might do with the fruits of its toil as it saw fit, he introduced into the mechanical calculus of the market a conflicting calculus of moral judgment.robert heilbroner
I protest against deference to any man, whether John Stuart Mill, or Adam Smith, or Aristotle , being allowed to check inquiry.
In the early morning the Mill girls clumping down the cobbled street, all in clogs, making a curiously formidable sound, like an army hurrying into battle. I suppose this is the typical sound of Lancashire.
The miller sees not all the water that goes by his Mill.robert burton
And a proverb haunts my mindAs a spell is cast,"The Mill cannot grindWith the water that is past."sarah doudney
The mine owners "did not find the gold, they did not mine the gold, they did not Mill the gold, but by some weird alchemy all the gold belonged to them!"bill haywood
Stranded in this Mill town railroad yard while the whole world was converging elsewhere, we seemed to be nothing but children playing among heroic men.john knowles
The recent market run-up that appreciated run-of-the- Mill shares also chanced to send up those token gold holdings. Pure luck, undeserved and unlikely to reoccur. Good questions outrank easy answers.paul samuelson
Oh seize the instant time; you never willWith waters once passed by impel the Mill.richard chenevix trench
He is my friend who grinds at my Mill.
Oh, to be home again, home again, home again! Under the apple-boughs, down by the Mill!james thomas fields
Mathematics may be compared to a Mill of exquisite workmanship, which grinds you stuff of any degree of fineness; but, nevertheless, what you get out depends upon what you put in; and as the grandest Mill in the world will not extract wheat-flour from peascod, so pages of formulae will not get a definite result out of loose data.thomas henry huxley
The world rolls round for ever like a Mill; It grinds out death and life and good and ill; It has no purpose, heart or mind or will.james thomson
Much water goeth by the Mill That the miller knoweth not of.
Oh seize the instant time; you never will With waters once passed by impel the Mill.richard chenevix trench
But here by the Mill the castled clouds Mocked themselves in the dizzy water.
Euler calculated the force of the wheels necessary to raise the water in a reservoir … My Mill was carried out geometrically and could not raise a drop of water fifty yards from the reservoir. Vanity of vanities! Vanity of geometry!
