˹ 378 - That no testimony is sufficient to establish a miracle, unless the testimony be of such a kind, that its falsehood would be more miraculous, than the fact, which it endeavours to establish: and even in that case there is a mutual destruction of arguments, and the superior only gives us an assurance suitable to that degree of force, which remains, after deducting the inferior.
˹ 433 - I believe that the experiences of utility organized and consolidated through all past generations of the human race have been producing corresponding nervous modifications, which, by continued transmission and accumulation, have become in us certain faculties of moral intuitioncertain emotions responding to right and wrong conduct, which have no apparent basis in the individual experiences of utility.
˹ 418 - The sphere of our belief is much more extensive than the sphere of our knowledge ; and, therefore, when I deny that the Infinite can by us be known, I am far from denying that by us it is, must, and ought to be, believed.
˹ 83 - To say a notion is imprinted on the mind, and yet at the same time to say that the mind is ignorant of it, and never yet took notice of it, is to make this impression nothing.
˹ 192 - In a product of beautiful art, we must become conscious that it is art and not nature; but yet the purposiveness in its form must seem to be as free from all constraint of arbitrary rules as if it were a product of mere nature.
˹ 85 - Take away the sensation of them; let not the eyes see light or colours, nor the ears hear sounds; let the palate not taste, nor the nose smell; and all colours, tastes, odours, and sounds, as they are such particular ideas, vanish and cease, and are reduced to their causes, ie, bulk, figure, and motion of parts.
˹ 351 - The Being of God is a kind of Law to his working; for that perfection which God is, giveth perfection to that he doth.
˹ 372 - An epistolary discourse, proving from the scriptures, and the first fathers, that the soul is a principle naturally mortal, but immortalized, actually by the pleasure of God, to punishment or reward, by its union with the divine baptismal spirit. Wherein is proved that none have the power of giving this divine immortalizing spirit, since the apostles, but only the bishops ; and that sacerdotal absolution is necessary for the remission of sins, even of those who are truly penitent.
˹ 50 - X is a triangle we know that the sum of its angles is equal to two right angles. Similarly too in all other cases.
˹ 456 - York, 1872, Instinct : Its Office in the Animal Kingdom and its Relation to the Higher Powers in Man, both Lowell Lectures.
