Seite 120 - ... it being no more impossible to conceive that God should annex such ideas to such motions, with which they have no similitude, than that he should annex the idea of pain to the motion of a piece of steel dividing our flesh, with which that idea hath no resemblance.
Seite 130 - ... whether by his sight, before he touched them, he could now distinguish and tell which is the globe, which the cube?
Seite 118 - Such qualities, which in truth are nothing in the objects themselves, but powers to produce various sensations in us by their primary qualities, ie by the bulk, figure, texture, and motion of their insensible parts, as colours, sounds, tastes, &c.
