Sayfa 341 - Let us then suppose the mind to be, as we say, white paper, void of all characters, without any ideas: — How comes it to be furnished? Whence comes it by that vast store which the busy and boundless fancy of man has painted on it with an almost endless variety? Whence has it all the materials of reason and knowledge? To this I answer, in one word, from EXPERIENCE. In that all our knowledge is founded; and from that it ultimately derives itself.
Sayfa 484 - Fife had a wife: where is she now? What ! will these hands ne'er be clean? No more o' that, my Lord, no more o' that : you mar all with this starting.
Sayfa 497 - A dungeon horrible, on all sides round, As one great furnace flamed; yet from those flames No light; but rather darkness visible Served only to discover sights of woe, Regions of sorrow, doleful shades, where peace And rest can never dwell, hope never comes That comes to all, but torture without end Still urges, and a fiery deluge, fed With ever-burning sulphur unconsumed.

The chasm between the two classes of phenomena would still remain intellectually impassable.
Sayfa 463 - This was the most unkindest cut of all ; For when the noble Caesar saw him stab, Ingratitude, more strong than traitors...
Sayfa 216 - Our observation, employed either about external sensible objects, or about the internal operations of our minds, perceived and reflected on by ourselves, is that which supplies our understandings with all the materials of thinking. These two are the fountains of knowledge, from whence all the ideas we have, or can naturally have, do spring.
Sayfa 328 - ... ideas are general, when they are set up as the representatives of many particular things : but universality belongs not to things themselves, which are all of them particular in their existence ; even those words and ideas which in their signification are general.
