Sayfa 53 - All we have willed or hoped or dreamed of good shall exist; Not its semblance but itself; no beauty, nor good nor power Whose voice has gone forth, but each survives for the melodist When eternity affirms the conception of an hour.

Sayfa 142 - is a definite combination of heterogeneous changes, both simultaneous and successive, in correspondence with external coexistences and sequences.
Sayfa 268 - has freedom to do all that he wills, provided he infringes not the equal freedom of any other...
Sayfa 158 - ... achievement of the highest life. That the intuitions of a moral faculty should guide our conduct, is a proposition in which a truth is contained ; for these intuitions are the slowly organized results of experiences received by the race while living in presence of these conditions.

Sayfa 290 - ... his conclusions, his sentiments, his technical skill : things which more truly belong to him than do any visible and tangible things to their owners; since all of these contain raw material which has been removed from the potential use of others. So that in fact a production of mental labour may be regarded as property in a fuller sense than may a product of bodily labour ; since that which constitutes its value is exclusively created by the worker.
Sayfa 208 - Not for the human race only, but for every race, there are laws of right living. Given its environment and its structure, and there is for each kind of creature a set of actions adapted in their kinds, amounts, and combinations, to secure the highest conservation its nature permits.
