الصفحة 10 - After we had a while puzzled ourselves, without coming any nearer a resolution of those doubts which perplexed us, it came into my thoughts that we took a wrong course: and that before we set ourselves upon inquiries of that nature, it was necessary to examine our own abilities, and see what objects our understandings were, or were not, fitted to deal with.
الصفحة 166 - As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

الصفحة 243 - For the thought of the war introduced the thought of delivering up the King to his enemies ; the thought of that brought in the thought of the delivering up of Christ; and that again the thought of the thirty pence, which was the price of that treason ; and thence easily followed that malicious question...
الصفحة 226 - ... correct" answer against which to measure public responses is not simple. For other questions, such as whether the earth goes round the sun, or the sun round the earth, the "obvious" correct answer is the former.
