Side 130 - But God has not been so sparing to men to make them barely two-legged creatures, and left it to Aristotle to make them rational...
Side 56 - Could I embody and unbosom now That which is most within me — could I wreak My thoughts upon expression, and thus throw Soul, heart, mind, passions, feelings, strong or weak, All that I would have sought, and all I seek, Bear, know, feel, and yet breathe — into one word, And that one word were Lightning, I would speak ; But as it is, I live and die unheard, With a most voiceless thought, sheathing it as a sword.
Side 127 - Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is high as heaven ; what canst thou do ? Deeper than Sheol ; what canst thou know ? The measure thereof is longer than the earth, And broader than the sea.
Side 2 - Being, and that those ideas which are in the mind of man are a transcript of the world. To this we may add, that words are the transcript of those ideas which are in the mind of man, and that writing or printing is the transcript of words.
Side 26 - I must confess then, that when I first began this discourse of the understanding, and a good while after, I had not the least thought that any consideration of words was at all necessary to it. But when, having passed over the original and composition of our ideas, I began to examine the extent and certainty of our knowledge, I found it had so near a connexion with words, that, unless their force and manner of signification were first well observed, there could be very little said clearly...
Side 134 - In reading, for example, the enunciation of a proposition, we are apt to fancy, that for every word contained in it, there is an idea presented to the understanding ; from the combination and comparison of which ideas, results that act of the mind called judgment. So different is all this from the fact, that our words, when examined separately, are often as completely insignificant as the letters of which they are composed ; deriving their meaning solely from the connexion, or relation, in which...
Side 135 - In instances of this sort, it will be generally found, upon an accurate examination, that the intellectual act, as far as we are able to trace it, is altogether simple, and incapable of analysis ; and that the elements into which we flatter ourselves we have resolved it, are nothing more than the grammatical elements of speech ; — the logical doctrine about the comparison of ideas bearing a much closer affinity to the task of a school-boy in parsing his lesson, than to the researches of philosophers,...
Side 2 - ARISTOTLE tells us that the world is a copy or transcript of those ideas which are in the mind of the first Being, and that those ideas which are in the mind of man are a transcript of the world: No.
Side 145 - Longe alio sonitu rabie restricta minantur, Et cum jam latrant, et vocibus omnia complent. At catulos blande cum lingua lambere tentant, Aut ubi eos jactant pedibus, morsuque petentes, Suspensis teneros imitantur dentibus haustus, Longe alio pacto gannitu vocis adulant, Et cum deserti baubantur in sedibus, aut cum Plorantes fugiunt summisso corpore plagas.
