Page 251 - To say, that all this order in animals and vegetables proceeds ultimately from design, is begging the question ; nor can that great point be ascertained otherwise than by proving, a priori, both that order is, from its nature, inseparably attached to thought ; and that it can never of itself, or from original unknown principles, belong to matter.
Page 132 - And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 'And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it; for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
Page 73 - And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them : and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.
