The world thenceforth becomes a temple, and life itself one continued act of adoration.
Стр. 20 - I offer this work as the mathematical principles of philosophy, for the whole burden of philosophy seems to consist in this — from the phenomena of motions to investigate the forces of nature, and then from these forces to demonstrate the other phenomena; and to this end the general propositions in the first and second Books are directed.
Стр. 20 - That very law* which moulds a tear, And bids it trickle from its source, That law preserves the earth a sphere, And guides the planets in their course.
Стр. 15 - Book. Xenophon ....Two Books, from any of his larger works. Demosthenes .One of the longer, or three of the shorter public Orations ; or two of the private Orations. Plato Apology of Socrates, and Crito. Virgil The Eclogues, and six Books of the jEneid; or the Georgics, and the Sixth Book of the jEneid.
