Стр. 50 - And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul, the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit, that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural ; and afterward that which is spiritual.
Стр. 70 - To my mind it accords better with what we know of the laws impressed on matter by the Creator, that the production and extinction of the past and present inhabitants of the world should have been due to secondary causes, like those determining the birth and death of the individual.
Стр. 80 - His existence, and that we could go out into the highways of unbelief and "compel them to come in; " that " the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world were clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made," " so that they are without excuse.
Стр. 84 - If design has once operated in rerum natura, how can it stop operating, and undesigned formation succeed it ? It cannot ; and intention in Nature having once existed, the test of the amount of that intention is not the commencement but the end, not the first low organism but the climax and consummation of the whole.
Стр. 46 - ... limitation of the number of variations and the predetermination of their character are conceptions, foreign, I believe, to Darwin's habitual mode of thought, but they may now be considered tenets of the school ; and Professor Asa Gray, adopting categorically the suggestion of Professor Huxley, declares, ' The facts, so far as I can judge, do not support the assumption of every-sided and indifferent variations.
Стр. 50 - We are sharers not only of animal but of vegetable life, sharers with the higher brute animals in common instincts and feelings and affections.

I fancy that human beings may be more humane when they realize that, as their dependent associates live a life in which man has a share, so they have rights which man is bound to respect.
Стр. 70 - There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved.
Стр. 102 - ... because in it all worths and ends inhere; because it only is worth immortality, because it alone carries in itself the promise and potentiality of eternal life! Certainly in it only is the potentiality of religion, or that which aspires to immortality. Here I should close; but, in justice to myself and to you, a word must still be added. You rightly will say that, although theism is at the foundation of religion, the foundation is of small practical value without the superstructure. Your supreme...
Стр. 50 - From harmony, from heavenly harmony, This universal frame began : When Nature underneath a heap of jarring atoms lay, And could not heave her head, The tuneful voice was heard from high. Arise ye more than dead. Then cold and hot, and moist and dry, In order to their stations leap, And music's power obey. From harmony, from heavenly harmony, This universal frame began : From harmony to harmony Through all the compass of the notes it ran...
Стр. 98 - ... intelligence at length develops intelligences ? But while, on the one hand, we rise in thought into the supernatural, on the other we need not forget that one of the three old orthodox opinions, — the one held to be tenable if not directly favored by Augustine, and most accordant to his theology, as it is to observation, — is that souls as well as lives are propagated in the order of Nature.
