الصفحة 319 - Let it be allowed, though virtue or moral rectitude does indeed consist in affection to and pursuit of what is right and good, as such; yet, that when we sit down in a cool hour, we can neither justify to ourselves this or any other pursuit, till we are convinced that it will be for our happiness, or, at least, not contrary to it.
الصفحة 301 - Why leap ye, ye high hills ? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in ; yea, the Lord will dwell in it for ever. 17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels : the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.
الصفحة 319 - It may be allowed, without any prejudice to the cause of virtue and religion, that our ideas of happiness and misery are of all our ideas the nearest and most important to us; that they will, nay, if you please, that they ought to prevail over those of order, and beauty, and harmony, and proportion, if there should ever be, as it is impossible there ever should be, any inconsistence between them: though these last too, as expressing the fitness of actions, are real as truth itself.

Now, it is evident that to every one of the ultimate propositions prescribing these ends, and for which, as the ends are ends-in-themselves, no further reason can be given, there will belong a system of dependent propositions, the reasons for which are that the actions they prescribe conduce to the ultimate end or end-in-itself.
الصفحة 50 - It is a bitter thought, how different a thing the Christianity of the world might have been, if the Christian faith had been adopted as the religion of the empire under the auspices of Marcus Aurelius instead of those of Constantine.
الصفحة 260 - It remains to inquire what is the ground of our belief in axioms — what is the evidence on which they rest? I answer, they are experimental truths, generalizations from observation. The proposition, "Two straight lines cannot inclose a space" ' — or, in other words, "Two straight lines which have once met, do not meet again, but continue to diverge" — is an induction from the evidence of our senses.
الصفحة 493 - All definitions are of names, and of names only, but, in some definitions, it is clearly apparent that nothing is intended except to explain the meaning of the word, while, in others, besides explaining the meaning of the word, it is intended to be implied that there exists a thing corresponding to the word.
