76 ページ - Custom, then, is the great guide of human life. It is that principle alone which renders our experience useful to us, and makes us expect, for the future, a similar train of events with those which have appeared in the past.

It is false that any representation is mistaken for reality, that any dramatic fable in its materiality was ever credible, or, for a single moment, was ever credited.
25 ページ - But truth supposes mankind ; for whom and by whom alone the word is formed, and to whom only it is applicable. If no man, no truth. There is therefore no such thing as eternal, immutable, everlasting truth ; unless...
226 ページ - I had it not from Jove, nor the just gods Who rule below ; nor could I ever think A mortal's law of power or strength sufficient To abrogate th' unwritten law divine, Immutable, eternal, not like these Of yesterday, but made ere time began.
