Three days of labor with the spade and the sieve produced no results
of the slightest importance.
Never was there a creative fever such as mine from which the patient escaped fatal results
. The way I worked was enough to soften my brain and send me to a mad-house.
Is there not also a second class of goods, such as knowledge, sight, health, which are desirable not only in themselves, but also for their results
One might, indeed, rest sufficiently satisfied with what, it is evident, must be, in general, the results
of such a relation, with- out seeking farther to find whether they have fol- lowed in every instance.
On the conclusion of the Nottingham engagement (the results
of which more than equaled the results
at Derby), I proposed taking the entertainment next -- now we had got it into our own hands -- to Newark.
Like 'Sartor Resartus' it has much subjective coloring, which here results

The statement of this curious fact--intended merely to assist me in identifying the person of whom we were in search--when coupled with the additional information that Anne Catherick had escaped from a mad-house, started the first immense conception in my mind, which subsequently led to such amazing results

Most people, if you describe a train of events to them, will tell you what the result
One wheel slowly moved, another was set in motion, and a third, and wheels began to revolve faster and faster, levers and cogwheels to work, chimes to play, figures to pop out, and the hands to advance with regular motion as a result
of all that activity.
For as the sea-fight at Salamis and the battle with the Carthaginians in Sicily took place at the same time, but did not tend to any one result
, so in the sequence of events, one thing sometimes follows another, and yet no single result
is thereby produced.
