Strana xxviii - 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 175 - ... objects. Our sight seems designed to supply all these defects, and may be considered as a more delicate and diffusive kind of touch, that spreads itself over an infinite multitude of bodies, comprehends the largest figures, and brings into our reach some of the most remote parts of the universe.
Strana 75 - For the good that I would I do not : but the evil that I would not, that I do.
Strana 13 - But though our thought seems to possess this unbounded liberty, we shall find upon a nearer examination, that it is really confined within very narrow limits, and that all this creative power of the mind amounts to no more than the faculty of compounding, transposing, augmenting, or diminishing the materials afforded us by the senses and experience.
Strana 275 - Here is a kind of attraction which in the mental world will be found to have as extraordinary effects as in the natural, and to show itself in as many and as various forms.
Strana 280 - In passing along a road which we have formerly travelled in the company of a friend, the particulars of the conversation in which we were then engaged are frequently suggested to us by the objects we meet with.

Strana 43 - ... 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 140 - 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 204 - On one bright summer day, the boy, then just seven years old, lay on the bank of the rivulet which flows through the old domain of his house to join the Isis. There, as threescore and ten years later he told the tale, rose in his mind a scheme which, through all the turns of his eventful career, was never abandoned. He would recover the estate which had belonged to his fathers. He would be Hastings of Daylesford.
Strana 42 - 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,...
