Σελίδα 86 - ... like succession of day and night. Some of them have moons, that serve to give them light in the absence of the sun, as our moon does to us. They are all, in their motions, subject to the same law of gravitation as the earth is. From all...
Σελίδα 171 - ... of the powers of our own or of other minds. This reflection ought to be distinguished from consciousness, with which it is too often confounded, even by Mr Locke. All men are conscious of the operations of their own minds, at all times, while they are awake; but there are few who reflect upon them, or make them objects of thought.
Σελίδα 86 - Some of them have moons, that serve to give them light in the absence of the sun, as our moon does to us.

Σελίδα 143 - The mind is a thinking substance. A thinking substance is a spirit. A spirit has no composition of parts. That which has no composition of parts is indissoluble. That which is indissoluble is immortal . .•, The mind is immortal.
Σελίδα 132 - ... into. The understanding, like the eye, whilst it makes us see and perceive all other things, takes no notice of itself; and it requires art and pains to set it at a distance, and make it its own object. But whatever be the difficulties that lie in the...
