Strana 34 - Whether others have this wonderful faculty of abstracting their ideas, they best can tell: for myself I find indeed I have a faculty of imagining, or representing to myself the ideas of those particular things I have perceived and of variously compounding and dividing them. I can imagine a man with two heads or the upper parts of a man joined to the body of a horse. I can consider the hand, the eye, the nose, each by itself abstracted or separated from the rest of the body. But then whatever hand...
Strana 83 - But Moses' hands were heavy ; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon ; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side ; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
Strana 182 - Love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you ; that ye may be sons of your Father which is in heaven : for he maketh his sun to rise on the. evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.
Strana 174 - According to the principle, therefore, which denies necessity, and consequently causes, a man is as pure and untainted, after having committed the most horrid crime, as at the first moment of his birth...

Strana 166 - A determination by motives cannot, to our understanding, escape from necessitation. Nay, were we even to admit as true what we cannot think as possible, still the doctrine of a motiveless volition would be only casualism, and the free acts of an indifferent (Will) are morally and rationally as worthless as the preordered passions of a determined Will.
Strana 6 - This Being is immediate, ie, it contains no reference binding it with anything beyond itself, but stands forward baldly and nakedly, as if alone ; and if hard pressed, it turns over into something else. It includes the three stages of Quality, Quantity, and Measure. The ether of is presumes no substratum, or further connexion with 48 Logic of Hegc!, Prolegomena, p.
Strana 71 - But the chief advantage arising from it is that we are freed from that dangerous dilemma, to which several who have employed their thoughts on that subject imagine themselves reduced, to wit, of thinking either that Real Space is God, or else that there is something beside God which is eternal, uncreated, infinite, indivisible, immutable.
Strana 169 - We are certain that, in the case of our volitions, there is not this mysterious constraint. We know that we are not compelled, as by a magical spell, to obey any particular motive.
