OBJECTS OF HUMAN KNOWLEDGE.—It is evident to any one who takes a survey of the objects of human knowledge, that they are either IDEAS actually imprinted on the senses; or else such as are perceived by attending to the passions and operations of the mind; or lastly, ideas formed by help of memory and imagination—either compounding, dividing, or barely representing those originally perceived in the aforesaid ways.
Seite 510 - I perceive hard and soft, heat and cold, motion and resistance; and of all these more and less either as to quantity or degree. Smelling furnishes me with odours; the palate with tastes; and hearing conveys sounds to the mind in all their variety of tone and composition.

Seite 485 - A number of equal particles, attracting each other directly as the distance, are constrained to move in parallel tubes; if the positions of the particles be given at the commencement of the motion, determine the subsequent motion of each ; and shew that the particles will oscillate symmetrically with respect to the plane perpendicular to the tubes, which passed through their centre of gravity at the Commencement of the motion.
Seite 14 - ... after a certain time and remain unmarried. Of those who do not fill college offices, some occupy themselves with private pupils ; others, who have property of their own, prefer to live a life of literary leisure, like some of their predecessors, the monks of old.
