Page 1 - Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly and one by one.
Page 2 - ... their attention is caught by some new folly more captivating than the first. We see one nation suddenly seized, from its highest to its lowest members, with a fierce desire of military glory ; another as suddenly becoming crazed upon a religious scruple ; and neither of them recovering its senses until it has shed rivers of blood and sowed a harvest of groans and tears, to be reaped by its posterity.
