83 페이지 - For, from our very faculty of habits, passive impressions, by being repeated, grow weaker. Thoughts, by often passing through the mind, are felt less sensibly; being accustomed to danger, begets intrepidity, ie lessens fear ; to distress, lessens the passion of pity ; to instances of others' mortality, lessens the sensible apprehension of our own. And from these two observations together ; that practical habits are formed and strengthened by repeated acts, and that passive impressions grow weaker...
84 페이지 - ... these motives and excitements themselves are, by proportionable degrees, growing less sensible, ie are continually less and less sensibly felt, even as the active habits strengthen.
84 페이지 - ... considered not as a passion, but as a practical principle of action, will strengthen: and whilst he passively compassionates the distressed less, he will acquire a greater aptitude actively to assist and befriend them. So also at the same time that the daily instances of men's dying around us, give us daily a less sensible passive feeling or apprehension of our own mortality, such instances greatly contribute to the strengthening a practical regard to it in serious men ; ie to forming a habit...
293 페이지 - Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth ; yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
