Strana 384 - Have not the small particles of bodies certain powers, virtues, or forces by which they act at a distance, not only upon the rays of light for reflecting, refracting, and inflecting them, but also upon one another for producing a great part of the phenomena of nature?

Strana 42 - knows that there is a mask of theory over the whole face of " nature, if it be theory to infer more than we see.
