Some truths there are so near and obvious to the mind that a man need only open his eyes to see them. Such I take this important one to be, viz. that all the choir of heaven and furniture of the earth, in a word all those bodies which compose the mighty frame of the world, have not any subsistence without a mind that their being is to be perceived or known.
The national sport of England is obstacle-racing. People fill their rooms with useless and cumbersome furniture, and spend the rest of their lives trying to dodge it.
All the choir of heaven and furniture of earth in a word, all those bodies which compose the mighty frame of the world have not any subsistence without a mind.George Berkeley
