Nothing can come out of nothing, any more than a thing can go back to nothing. .

Marcus Aurelius
#19321 Marcus Aurelius

If mind is common to us, then also the reason, whereby we are reasoning beings, is common.' If this be so, then also the reason which enjoins what is to be done or left undone is common.
