Side 393 - That the organization of no two human beings is ever precisely similar at birth ; nor can art subsequently form any two individuals, from infancy to maturity, to be precisely similar.
Side 386 - That man is a compound being, whose character is formed of his constitution or organization at birth, and of the effects of external circumstances upon it, from birth to death ; such original organization and external influences continually acting and reacting each upon the other.
