Стр. 380 - I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding ; and, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.
Стр. 388 - Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.
Стр. 391 - if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel
Стр. 426 - Whether money is to be considered as having an intrinsic value, or as being a commodity, a standard, a measure, or a pledge, as is variously suggested by writers? And whether the true idea of money, as such, be not altogether that of a ticket or counter?
Стр. 287 - There is a certain analogy, constancy, and uniformity in the phenomena or appearances of nature, which are a foundation for general rules : and these are a grammar for the understanding of nature, or that series of effects in the visible world whereby we are enabled to foresee what will come to pass in the natural course of things.
Стр. 248 - The seeds of things seem to lie latent in the air, ready to appear and produce their kind, whenever they light on a proper matrix. The extremely small seeds of fern, mosses, mushrooms, and some other plants are concealed and wafted about in the air, every part whereof seems replete with seeds of one kind or other. The whole atmosphere seems alive. There is every where acid to corrode, and seed to engender. Iron will rust, and mold will grow in all places.
Стр. 314 - ... the whole Universe, including mind together with the mundane body, is conceived to be God (sect. 300), and the creatures to be partial manifestations of the Divine essence — there is no Atheism in either case, whatever misconceptions there may be ; so long as mind or intellect is understood to preside over, govern, and conduct, the whole frame of things.
Стр. 297 - There is, according to those philosophers, a life infused throughout all things : the iriip votpbv, irvp Ti\vtKov, an intellectual and artificial fire,* an inward principle, animal spirit, or natural life, producing and forming within, as art doth without, regulating, moderating, and reconciling, the various motions, qualities, and parts, of this mundane system.
Стр. 317 - Would to God many of our countrymen had the same obligations to those Socratic writers ! Certainly where the people are well educated, the art of piloting a state is best learned from the writings of Plato. But among bad men void of discipline and education, Plato, Pythagoras, and Aristotle, themselves, were they living, could do but little good.
