Pagina 105 - This part of knowledge is irresistible, and like bright sunshine forces itself immediately to be perceived, as soon as ever the mind turns its view that way; and leaves no room for hesitation, doubt, or examination, but the mind is presently filled with the clear light of it. It is on this intuition that depends all the certainty and evidence of all our knowledge...
Pagina 174 - ... to fair notions, until from fair notions he arrives at the notion of absolute beauty, and at last knows what the essence of beauty is. This, my dear Socrates...

Pagina 110 - Now there can be one and only one such experience: or only one significant whole, the significance of which is self-contained in the sense required.

Pagina 40 - O Lady, we receive but what we give, And in our life alone does nature live.
