We are rational creatures: Our virtue and perfection is to love reason, or rather to love order.

Nicolas Malebranche 41 quotes

You find yourself in the world...

You find yourself in the world, without any power, immovable as a rock, stupid, so to speak, as a log of wood.

Nicolas Malebranche 41 quotes

Do not fear lest you should me...

Do not fear lest you should meditate too much upon Him and speak of Him in an unworthy way, providing you are led by faith. Do not fear lest you should entertain false opinions of Him so long as they are in conformity with the notion of the infinitely perfect Being.

As our bodies live upon the earth and find sustenance in the fruits which it produces, so our minds feed on the same truths as the intelligible and immutable substance of the divine Word contains.

Nicolas Malebranche 41 quotes

God transforms, so to speak, this air into words, into various sounds. He makes you understand these various sounds through the modifications by which you are affected.

Nicolas Malebranche 41 quotes

I am unable, when I turn to my...

I am unable, when I turn to myself, to recognize any of my faculties or my capacities. The inner sensation which I have of myself informs me that I am, that I think, that I will, that I have sensory awareness, that I suffer, and so on; but it provides me with no knowledge whatever of what I am - of the nature of my thought, my sensations, my passions, or my pain - or the mutual relations that obtain between all these things ... I have no idea whatever of my soul.

Nicolas Malebranche 41 quotes

All creatures are united to Go...

All creatures are united to God alone in an immediate union. They depend essentially and directly upon Him. Being all alike equally impotent, they cannot be in reciprocal dependence upon one another.

Nicolas Malebranche 41 quotes

God joins us together by means...

God joins us together by means of the body, in consequence of the laws of the communication of movements. He affects us with the same feelings in consequence of the laws of the conjunction of body and soul.

Nicolas Malebranche 41 quotes

He has willed - He wills inces...

He has willed - He wills incessantly - that the modifications of the mind and those of the body shall be reciprocal. This is the conjunction and the natural dependence of the two parts of which we are constituted.

Nicolas Malebranche 41 quotes

Our soul is not united to our ...

Our soul is not united to our body in the ordinary sense of these terms. It is immediately and directly united to God alone.
