Ralph Cudworth Quotes

Date of Death: 1688-06-26 (Saturday, June 26th, 1688)



    • The true knowledge or science which exists nowhere but in the mind itself, has no other entity at all besides intelligibility; and therefore whatsoever is clearly intelligible, is absolutely true.
    • Knowledge is not a passion from without the mind, but an active exertion of the inward strength, vigour and power of the mind, displaying itself from within.
    • Truth is the most unbending and uncompliable, the most necessary, firm, immutable, and adamantine thing in the world.
    • If intellection and knowledge were mere passion from without, or the bare reception of extraneous and adventitious forms, then no reason could be given at all why a mirror or looking-glass should not understand; whereas it cannot so much as sensibly perceive those images which it receives and reflects to us.
