An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, by John Locke


Neither Principles nor Ideas are Innate

As thou knowest not what is the way of the Spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God, who maketh all things. — Eccles. 11. 5.

Quam bellum est velle confiteri potius nescire quod nescias, quam ista effutientem nauseare, atque ipsum sibi displicere. — Cicero, de Natur. Deor. l. i.
