Stran 64 - The golden age of English oratory, which extends over the last quarter of the eighteenth and the first quarter of the nineteenth centuries, produced no speaker, either in Parliament or at the Bar, superior in persuasive force and artistic finish to Thomas Lord Erskine.
Stran 40 - There is an insatiable desire in the human breast to resume in some short formula, some brief statement, the facts of human experience. It leads the savage to " account " for all natural phenomena by deifying the wind and the stream and the tree.
Stran v - Yet stand alone and isolated, because nothing that is embodied, nothing that is conscious of separation, nothing that is out of the eternal, can aid you.
Stran 20 - This has been said over and over again by thinkers of all ages and of all countries. The existence of the Self is certain and indubitable. The next question about it is : What is it ? Is it black ? is it white ? is it flesh and blood and bone, or nerve and brain, or rocks and rivers, mountains, heavenly orbs, or light or heat or force invisible, or time or space ? is it identical with or coextensive with the living body, or is it centred in one limb, organ or point thereof? The single answer to all...
Stran 71 - The business of the theoretical part was to conciliate Ego and Non-Ego. To this end middle term after middle term was intercalated without success. Then came reason with the absolute decision: 'Inasmuch as the Non-Ego is incapable of union with the Ego, Non-Ego there shall be none.
Stran 21 - In all the endless months, years and small and great cycles, past and to come, this self-luminous consciousness alone neither rises nor ever sets.' An unconditioned reality where time and space along with all their objects vanish is felt to be real. It is the self which is the unaffected spectator of the whole drama of ideas related to the changing moods of waking, dreaming and sleeping. We are convinced that there is \something...
Stran 119 - ... posited, the Ego also must be posited; for both are posited as divisible in regard to their reality. And only now can you say of either, it is something. For the absolute Ego of the first fundamental principle is not something (has no predicate and can have none); it is simply what it is. But now all reality is in consciousness, and of this reality that part is to be ascribed to the Non-Ego which is not to be ascribed to the Ego, and vice versa. Both are something. The Non-Ego is what the Ego...
Stran 130 - Indeed, the difference between the three parts and the three moments is only the difference between the third person, on the one hand, and the first and second, on the other, between looking at the Self and Not-Self as Being and Nothing, or as ' I ' and
Stran 217 - ... first proteid to arise was living matter, endowed in all its radicals with the property of vigorously attracting similar constituents, adding them chemically to its molecule, and thus growing ad infinitum. According to this idea, living proteid does not need to have a constant molecular weight ; it is a huge molecule, undergoing constant, never-ending formation and constant decomposition, and probably behaves towards the usual chemical molecules as the sun behaves towards small meteors.
Stran 217 - originally the whole molten mass of the earth's body was a single giant organism ; the powerful movement that its substance possessed was its life.
