Side 444 - That gravity should be innate, inherent, and essential to matter, so that one body may act upon another at a distance through a vacuum, without the mediation of anything else, by and through which their action and force may be conveyed from one to another, is to me so great an absurdity, that I believe no man, who has in philosophical matters a competent faculty of thinking, can ever fall into it.
Side 311 - We see it as Columbus saw America from the shores of Spain. Its movements have been felt, trembling along the far-reaching line of our analysis, with a certainty hardly inferior to that of ocular demonstration.

Side 38 - GABRIEL Und schnell und unbegreiflich schnelle Dreht sich umher der Erde Pracht; Es wechselt Paradieseshelle Mit tiefer, schauervoller Nacht; Es schäumt das Meer in breiten Flüssen Am tiefen Grund der Felsen auf, Und Fels und Meer wird fortgerissen In ewig schnellem Sphärenlauf.
