עמוד 55 - De veritate; if it be for thy glory, I beseech thee give me some sign from heaven; if not, I shall suppress it.
עמוד 208 - Nor for any of the higher or supernatural views of inspiration is there any foundation in the Gospels or Epistles. There is no appearance in their writings that the Evangelists or Apostles had any inward gift, or were subject to any power external to them different from that of preaching or teaching which they daily exercised; nor do they anywhere lead us to suppose that they were free from error or infirmity.
עמוד 208 - If such a Spirit did not dwell in the Church, the Bible would not be inspired, for the Bible is before all things the written voice of the congregation. Bold as such a theory of inspiration may sound, it was the earliest creed of the Church, and it is the only one to which the facts of Scripture answer. The sacred writers acknowledge themselves men of like passions with ourselves, and we are promised illumination from the Spirit which dwelt in them.
עמוד 144 - finite." Therefore there is no idea, or conception of anything we call "infinite." No man can have in his mind an image of infinite magnitude ; nor conceive infinite swiftness, infinite time, or infinite force, or infinite power.

עמוד 118 - ... suicide is merely the product of the general condition of society, and that the individual felon only carries into effect what is a necessary consequence of preceding circumstances. In a given state of society, a certain number of persons must put an end to their own life. This is the general law; and the special question as to who shall commit the crime depends of...
עמוד 210 - Though we commonly regard mental and bodily life as distinct, it needs only to ascend somewhat above the ordinary point of view, to see that they are but sub-divisions of life in general ; and that no line of demarcation can be drawn between them, otherwise than arbitrarily.
עמוד 70 - Chaldaic, with such late forms as ^isi ^ and •£» the pronominal n and n having passed into ~\, and not only minute description of Antiochus's reign, but the stoppage of such description at the precise date 169 BC, remove all philological and critical doubt as to the age of the book.
