Stran 39 - As the conditionally limited (which we may briefly call the conditioned) is thus the only possible object of knowledge and of positive thought — thought necessarily supposes conditions. To think is to condition ; and conditional limitation is the fundamental law of the possibility of thought.
Stran 60 - America, but know that we are alive, that two and two make four, and that the sum of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the third side.
Stran 292 - Now, can we construe it to thought, that the moment after the universe flashed into material reality, into manifested being, there was a larger complement of existence in the universe and its Author together, than, the moment before, there subsisted in the Deity alone ? This we are unable to imagine.
Stran 406 - Thought," of which all other laws that can be laid down for thought are but particular applications, are, according to our author, three in number: the Law of Identity; the Law of Contradiction; and the Law of Excluded Middle. In his Lectures he recognised a fourth, " the Law of Reason and Consequent," which seems to be compounded of the Law of Causation, and the Leibnitzian " Principle of Sufficient Reason.

Stran 324 - A country may be overrun by an armed host, but it is only conquered by the establishment of fortresses. "Words are the fortresses of thought. They enable us to realize our dominion over what we have already overrun in thought — to make every intellectual conquest the basis of operations for others still beyond.
Stran 91 - By the Infinite is meant that which is free from all possible limitation ; that than which a greater is inconceivable ; and which consequently can receive no additional attribute or mode of existence which it had not from all eternity.
Stran 58 - That 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.
Stran 39 - We admit that the consequence of this doctrine is, — that philosophy, if viewed as more than a science of the conditioned, is impossible. Departing from the particular, we admit, that we can never, in our highest generalizations, rise above the finite...
