"This book discusses different arrangements and principles of philosophy. Most of the speculations contained in this work are not the author's own, but the speculations of ancient and respectable philosophers.

The perusal of old doctrines may afford perhaps amusement if it be true (as he has observed in another place), that, what from it's antiquity is but little known, has from that very circumstance the recommendation of novelty".

Sivu 170 - The poet's eye in a fine frenzy rolling, Doth glance from heav'n to earth, from earth to heav'n; And as imagination bodies forth The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen Turns them to shape, and gives to airy nothing A local habitation and a name. Such tricks hath strong imagination.
Sivu 4 - If we descend to later ages, and search our own country, we shall find sir Thomas More, sir Philip Sidney, sir Walter Raleigh, lord Herbert of Cherbury, Milton, Algernon Sidney, sir William Temple, and many others, to have been all of them eminent in public life, and yet at the same time conspicuous for their speculations and literature.

Sivu 352 - If there were no theorems of science to guide the operations of art, there would be no art ; but if there were no operations of art, there might still be theorems of science. Therefore science is prior to art.
