Strana 58 - Nature will be reported. All things are engaged in writing their history. The planet, the pebble, goes attended by its shadow. The rolling rock leaves its scratches on the mountain ; the river, its channel in the soil ; the animal, its bones in the stratum ; the fern and leaf, their modest epitaph in the coal.
Strana 238 - I was once told by a near relative of mine, that having in her childhood fallen into a river, and being on the very verge of death but for the...
Strana 10 - Of this, at least, I feel assured, that there is no such thing as forgetting possible to the mind ; a thousand accidents may and will interpose a veil between our present consciousness and the secret inscriptions on the mind; accidents of the same sort will also rend away this veil ; but alike, whether veiled or unveiled, the inscription remains for ever...
Strana 85 - For the good that I would I do not : but the evil that I would not, that I do.
Strana 53 - ... to subsist here sensible intelligent beings, and for several years continued us in such a state, can and will restore us to the like state of sensibility in another world...
Strana 150 - We have no right, however, to say that it is limited to any one part of the organism ; for even if we admit that the nervous system is the part to which it is proximately united, still the nervous system is itself universally ramified throughout the body ; and we have no more right to deny that the mind feels at the fingerpoints, as consciousness assures us, than to assert that it thinks exclusively in the brain.

Strana 249 - On being interrogated as to the method by which he obtained these results, the boy constantly declared that he did not know how the answers came into his mind. In the act of multiplying two numbers together, and in the raising of powers, it was evident (alike from the facts just stated, and from the...
Strana 52 - Man having been created after this manner, it is said, as a consequence, that "man became a living soul"; whence it may be inferred (unless we had rather take the heathen writers for our teachers respecting the nature of the soul) that man is a living being, intrinsically and properly one and individual, not compound or separable, not, according to the common opinion, made up and framed of two distinct and different natures, as of soul and body, but that the whole man is soul, and the soul man, that...
Strana 214 - It is wonderful how even the casualties of life seem to bow to a spirit that will not bow to them, and yield to subserve a design which they may, in their first apparent tendency, threaten to frustrate.
