Page 10 - What ages and what lights are requisite for THIS attainment ! This intelligence involves the very attributes of Divinity, while a God is denied: for unless this man is omnipresent, unless he is at this moment in every place in the universe, he cannot know but there may be in some place manifestations of a Deity by which even he would be overpowered.
Page 10 - The wonder, then, turns on the great process, by which a man could grow to the immense intelligence that can know that there is no God. What ages and what lights are requisite for THIS attainment ! This intelligence involves the very attributes of Divinity, while a God is denied: for unless this man is omnipresent, unless he is at this moment in every place in the universe, he cannot know but there...
Page 12 - Who bid brute matter's restive lump assume Such various forms, and gave it wings to fly ? Has matter innate motion ? then each atom, Asserting its indisputable right To dance, would form a universe of dust. Has matter none ? Then whence these glorious forms And boundless flights, from shapeless and reposed...
Page 10 - If he does not know every thing that has been done in the immeasurable ages that are past, some things may have been done by a God.

Page 12 - Has matter more than motion ? Has it thought, Judgment, and genius ? Is it deeply learn'd In mathematics ? Has it framed such laws, Which but to guess, a Newton made immortal ? — If so, how each sage atom laughs at me, Who think a clod inferior to a man ! If art, to form ; and counsel, to conduct ; And that with greater far than human skill ; Resides not in each block ; — a Godhead reigns.
Page 226 - With such pieces a box may be constructed at any moment by simply placing them together on a round plate of glass, which has previously been wet with glycerine and gently warmed. The area of the box will evidently vary according to the position given to the pieces, but the height can be varied only by using different sets of pieces. In such a box the paraffine may be kept in a liquid state by warming now and then over a spirit lamp, and small objects be placed in any desired position under the microscope.
Page 219 - ... is desirable to stain with an alcoholic solution, and will be found particularly useful for objects that are not easily penetrated by the ordinary aqueous solutions of carmine, such as the Arthropods. It is necessary, before immersing larger objects in this fluid, to leave them a short time in 70 % alcohol, otherwise there may be a precipitate. The time required for staining will vary from a few minutes to a day or more, according to the nature and size of the object. With larger objects, requiring...
