Page 254 - But in a void time the origination of a thing is impossible ; because no part of any such time contains a distinctive condition of being, in preference to that of nonbeing (whether the supposed thing originate of itself, or by means of some other cause). Consequently, many series of things may have a beginning in the world, but the world itself cannot have a beginning, and is, therefore, in relation to past time, infinite.
Page 159 - ... as among things in motion, is the eldest and mightiest principle of change, and that which is changed by another and yet moves other is second. Cle. Quite true. Ath. At this stage of the argument let us put a question.
Page 398 - For the Idea posits itself as the absolute unity of the pure Notion and its Reality, and thus gathers itself into the immediacy of Being ; and in doing so, as totality in this form, it is Nature.
