(About Nature, Politics, Religions & Spirituality)

Now, we deny not, but that politicians may sometimes abuse religion, and make it serve for the promoting of their own private interests and designs which yet they could not do so well neither, were the thing itself a mere cheat and figment of their own, and had no reality at all in nature, nor anything solid at the bottom of it.


More Quotes from Ralph Cudworth:


Knowledge is not a passion from without the mind, but an active exertion of the inward strength, vigor and power of the mind, displaying itself from within.
Ralph Cudworth

Ralph Cudworth

Ralph Cudworth

Sense is a line, the mind is a circle. Sense is like a line which is the flux of a point running out from itself, but intellect like a circle that keeps within itself.
Ralph Cudworth

Some who are far from atheists, may make themselves merry with that conceit of thousands of spirits dancing at once upon a needle's point.
