Excerpt from book:
faculties, that, in order for the object of its perfect beatitude to be such as to leave nothing ulterior, and greater to be known by the intellect, and no greater good to be desired by the will, it must possess the following properties: i.

It is evident that both the ultimate end or destiny of every creature, and the appointed means to that end must be proportioned to the nature of such being; and we find this principle actually verified in the action and tendency of the created things around us. Inanimate matter, the vegetablekingdom, brute animals, are all plai...
