Página 134 - In the progress of my present work, I have taken a deeper glance into religion than ever I did before. In me the emotions of the heart proceed only from perfect intellectual clearness ; — it cannot be but that the clearness I have now attained on this subject shall also take possession of my heart.
Página 77 - The leading principle of this work is, that there is, and can be, no absolutely unchangeable political constitution, because none absolutely perfect can be realized ; — the relatively best constitution must therefore carry within itself the principle of change and improvement.
