Pagina 177 - Objects are but the' occasion, ours the' exploit; Ours is the cloth, the pencil, and the paint, Which Nature's admirable picture draws, And beautifies creation's ample dome. Like Milton's Eve, when gazing on, the lake, Man makes the matchless image man admires.
Pagina 177 - Take in, at once, the landscape of the world, At a small inlet, which a grain might close, And half create the wondrous world they see.
Pagina 226 - Power arranging planetary systems, fixing, for instance, the trajectory of Saturn, or constructing a ring of two hundred thousand miles diameter, to surround his body, and be suspended like a magnificent arch over the heads of his inhabitants; and, at the other, bending a hooked tooth, concerting and providing an appropriate mechanism, for the clasping and reclasping of the filaments of the feather of the humming-bird.
Pagina 212 - Omne autem quod movetur, ab alio movetur. Nihil enim movetur, nisi secundum quod est in potentia ad illud ad quod movetur; movet autem aliquid secundum quod est actu. Movere enim nihil aliud est quam educere aliquid de potentia in actum...

Pagina 139 - We know that there is an infinite, and are ignorant of its nature. As we know it to be false that numbers are finite, it is therefore true that there is an infinity in number. But we do not know what it is. It is false that it is even, it is false that it is odd; for the addition of a unit can make no change in its nature. Yet it is a number, and every number is odd or even (this is certainly true of every finite number).
Pagina 212 - Hic autem non est procedere in infinitum, quia sic non esset aliquod primum movens; et per consequens nťe aliquod aliud movens, quia moventia secunda non movent nisi per hoc quod sunt mota a primo movente, sicut baculus non movet nisi per hoc quod est motus a manu. Ergo necesse est devenire ad aliquod primum movens, quod a nullo movetur, et hoc omnes intelligunt Deum.
Pagina 61 - Professors we, From over the sea, From the land where professors in plenty be ; And we thrive and flourish, as well we may, In the land that produced one Kant with a K, And many Cants with a C...
Pagina 137 - Let him see therein an infinity of universes, each of which has its firmament, its planets, its earth, in the same proportion as in the visible world; in...
Pagina 156 - Every organized being forms a whole — a peculiar system of its own, the parts of which mutually correspond, and concur in producing the same definitive action, by a reciprocal reaction. None of these parts can change...
