Sayfa 39 - As between his own happiness and that of others, utilitarianism requires him to be as strictly impartial as a disinterested and benevolent spectator. In the golden rule of Jesus of Nazareth, we read the complete spirit of the ethics of utility. To do as you would be done by, and to love your neighbour as yourself, constitute the ideal perfection of utilitarian morality.
Sayfa 20 - ... the most excellent writings in the world ; to which not only no other writings are to be preferred, but even in divers respects not comparable thereto.
Sayfa 33 - The endeavour to reconcile them is a necessity of the mind. We are right in thinking that if they are both indeed true they can be reconciled, and if they really are fundamentally opposed they cannot both be true. That is to say, there must be some error in our manner of conception in one or in the other, or in both. At the very best, each can represent only some partial and imperfect aspect of the truth. The error may lie in our Theology, or it may lie in what we are pleased to call our Science....
Sayfa 33 - We nay believe, and we must believe, many tilings which we cannot understand ; but we cannot really believe two propositions which are felt to be contradictory. It helps us nothing in such a difficulty, to say that the one proposition belongs to reason and the other proposition belongs to faith. The endeavour to reconcile them is a necessity of the mind. We are right in thinking that if they are both indeed true they can be reconciled, and if they really are fundamentally opposed they cannot both...
Sayfa 33 - The instinct which impels us to seek for harmony in the truths of Science and the truths of Religion, is a higher instinct and a truer one than the disposition which leads us to evade the difficulty by pretending that there is no relation between them. For, after all, it is a pretence and nothing more. No man who thoroughly accepts a principle in the philosophy of Nature...
Sayfa 33 - ... pretence and nothing more. No man who thoroughly accepts a principle in the philosophy of nature which he feels to be inconsistent with a doctrine of religion can help having his belief in that doctrine shaken and undermined. We may believe, and we must believe, both in nature and religion, many things which we cannot understand; but we cannot really believe two propositions which are felt to be contradictory.
Sayfa 17 - But which of them all pretend to speak of their own knowledge and experience ? or ever directed men to a divine principle, or agent, placed of God in man, to help him ; and how to know it, and wait to feel its power to work that good and acceptable will of God in them ? Some of them indeed have spoken of the Spirit, and the operations of it to sanctification, and...
Sayfa 18 - For though we affirm that Christ dwells in us, yet not immediately, but mediately, as he is in that seed, which is in us ; whereas he, to wit, the Eternal Word, which was with God, and was God, dwelt immediately in that holy man. He then is as the head, and we as the members ; he the vine, and we / the branches.
Sayfa 18 - What is proper in this place to be proved is, That Christians now are to be led inwardly and immediately by the Spirit of God, even in the same manner (though it befall not many to be led in the same measure) as the saints were of old.
