第 558 頁 - All goes to show that the soul in man is not an organ, but animates and exercises all the organs; is not a function, like the power of memory, of calculation, of comparison, — but uses these as hands and feet ; is not a faculty, but a...
第 720 頁 - It is immense — there is no other word. I've never read anything that equals it in its deep-sea wonder and mystery, nor do I think that any book before has so completely covered the whole business of whale-fishing, and, at the same time, given such real and new sea pictures. I congratulate you most heartily. It's a new world you've opened the door to.
第 556 頁 - We knew nothing rightly, for want of perspective. Now we learn what patient periods must round themselves before the rock is formed ; then before the rock is broken, and the first lichen race has disintegrated the thinnest external plate into soil, and opened the door for the remote Flora, Fauna, Ceres, and Pomona to come in.
第 37 頁 - That progress in intelligence seen during the growth of the child into the man, or the savage into the philosopher, is commonly regarded as consisting in the greater number of facts known and laws understood : whereas the actual progress consists in those internal modifications of which this increased knowledge is the expression.
第 559 頁 - All the facts of the animal economy, sex, nutriment, gestation, birth, growth, are symbols of the passage of the world into the soul of man, to suffer there a change, and reappear a new and higher fact.

Social progress is supposed to consist in the produce of a greater quantity and variety of the articles required for satisfying men's wants; in the increasing security of person and property; in widening freedom of action : whereas, rightly understood, social progress consists in those changes of structure in the social organism which have entailed these consequences.
第 218 頁 - And portance in my travel's history; Wherein of antres vast and deserts idle, Rough quarries, rocks, and hills whose heads touch heaven, It was my hint to speak, — such was the process: And of the Cannibals that each other eat, The Anthropophagi, and men whose heads Do grow beneath their shoulders.
第 720 頁 - Written with racy freedom of literary expression and luxuriant abundance of incident, so that ' The Cruise of the Cachalot ' becomes a story of fascinating vividness which thrills the reader and amuses him. The volume is no less enthralling than 'Two Years before the Mast,' and higher praise can not be accorded to a story of the sea.
第 454 頁 - And as I am no sceptic with regard to the nature of things, so neither am I as to their existence. That a thing should be really perceived by my senses, and at the same time not really exist, is to me a plain contradiction; since I cannot prescind or abstract, even in thought, the existence of a sensible thing from its being perceived.
