That which is born of the flesh is flesh ; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

But by the other I am also told, that with a mind to comprehend the whole, in the vast compass of its generality, He has also a mind to concentrate a close and a separate attention on each and on all of its particulars...
Página 115 - A purpose, an intention, a design," says Philo, " strikes everywhere the most careless, the most stupid thinker, and no man can be so hardened in absurd systems, as at all times to reject it. That Nature does nothing in vain, is a maxim established in all the schools, merely from the contemplation of the works of Nature, without any religious purpose ; and from a firm conviction of its truth, an anatomist, who had observed a new organ or canal, would never be satibfied till he had also discovered...

Página 141 - God has set them in the firmament of heaven, to give light upon their earth ; and to rule over the day, and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness ; and God has seen that it was good.
