But no part is perfect if separate from the whole. 202 1, 61 | that God, Whose "works are perfect," as it is said Dt. ~32: 203 1, 62 | from its creation was ~made perfect and complete; nor did its 204 1, 62 | happiness consists in ~his most perfect contemplation, whereby in 205 1, 62 | God.

Therefore the work of 222 1, 66 | can, therefore, produce a perfect thing in an ~instant, according 223 1, 66 | where some forms are more perfect ~than others, and contain 224 1, 66 | is in potentiality to a ~perfect form, and "vice versa." 225 1, 68 | imperfect things ~stand towards perfect.

Hence 241 1, 73 | superfluous, for a thing is called perfect ~to which nothing is wanting 242 1, 73 | a thing is substantially perfect, and this perfection ~is 243 1, 73 | the whole universe, is the perfect ~beatitude of the Saints 244 1, 75 | species of colors one is more perfect than ~another; and the same 245 1, 75 | compared to one another as the perfect to the imperfect, since 246 1, 76 | from ~one another, as the perfect and imperfect; as in the 247 1, 76 | things, the ~animate are more perfect than the inanimate, and 248 1, 76 | inanimate, and animals more perfect ~than plants, and man than 249 1, 76 | is supplanted by a more perfect ~soul, which is both sensitive 250 1, 76 | universally of all more ~perfect forms with regard to the 251 1, 76 | is added is ~always more perfect.

Thus, according to the 272 1, 77 | agent and the end are more perfect, ~while the receptive principle, 273 1, 77 | principle, as such, is less perfect; it follows that ~those 274 1, 77 | as the imperfect from the perfect.

Therefore 324 1, 52 | united to a ~body is more perfect than one which is united 325 1, 53 | since no one of them ~is a perfect mover, because no one man' 326 1, 53 | immediately by way of a perfect container, as was said ( 327 1, 56 | thus is something less ~perfect: for he would have but an 328 1, 56 | In this way it is more perfect to know a thing in the ~ 329 1, 56 | contained in it, is more perfect than ~one which cannot.~ 330 1, 58 | higher beings ~to be more perfect than the lower; and for 331 1, 59 | as the act ~of something perfect, that is, of one actually 332 1, 59 | the intellectual light is perfect ~in the angel, for he is 333 1, 59 | 10): "When that which is ~perfect is come, then that which 334 1, 59 | compared to it ~as the less perfect to the perfect. Therefore 335 1, 59 | the less perfect to the perfect. Therefore the evening knowledge ~ 336 1, 59 | On the coming of what is perfect, the opposite imperfect 337 1, 59 | mediums, one of which is more perfect and the other less ~perfect; 338 1, 59 | perfect and the other less ~perfect; just as we can have a demonstrative 339 1, 60 | movement is the act of a perfect agent, as stated in De Anima ~ 340 1, 60 | intellectual nature is more perfect than in the lower. But the 341 1, 60 | Consequently an angel would not be perfect in his nature, if his ~intellect 342 1, 61 | nature of the angels is perfect, only natural and not ~deductive 343 1, 62 | secondly, how they were made perfect in grace or glory; and thirdly, 344 1, 62 | universe. But no part is perfect if separate from the whole. 345 1, 62 | that God, Whose "works are perfect," as it is said Dt. ~32: 346 1, 63 | from its creation was ~made perfect and complete; nor did its 347 1, 63 | happiness consists in ~his most perfect contemplation, whereby in 348 1, 63 | God. The first ~is by the perfect love of God; this belongs 349 1, 63 | Para. 1/4~I answer that, Perfect beatitude is natural only 350 1, 63 | principle of meriting, ~and by perfect grace, which is the principle 351 1, 63 | 10): "When that which is ~perfect is come, then that which 352 1, 63 | can fail. But from its ~perfect union with the uncreated 353 1, 63 | principle of merit. But there is perfect charity in ~the angels. 354 1, 63 | charity of this life; whereas perfect charity does not merit but 355 1, 63 | acquired ~habit is both perfect and enjoyable. In the same 356 1, 63 | the same way the act of perfect ~charity has no quality 357 1, 63 | of the nature of what is perfect, considered as ~perfect. ~ 358 1, 63 | perfect, considered as ~perfect. ~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 359 1, 64 | 28:15): "Thou didst walk ~perfect [*Vulg.: 'Thou hast walked 360 1, 64 | stones of fire; ~thou wast perfect . . .'] in thy ways from 361 1, 65 | substances, ~although his perfect happiness consists in knowing 362 1, 66 | must be made before the perfect: and it is impossible that ~ 363 1, 67 | God is an agent absolutely perfect; wherefore it is said of 364 1, 67 | The works of God are perfect." Therefore the work of 365 1, 67 | can, therefore, produce a perfect thing in an ~instant, according 366 1, 67 | where some forms are more perfect ~than others, and contain 367 1, 67 | is in potentiality to a ~perfect form, and "vice versa." 368 1, 69 | imperfect things ~stand towards perfect. But bodies of composite 369 1, 70 | of due distinction and of perfect beauty, and in respect of 370 1, 70 | the heavenly bodies, are perfect and stable ~in being, whereas 371 1, 70 | production of perfection of perfect species, from which ~the 372 1, 71 | which is distinct from perfect. For ~the perfection of 373 1, 71 | himself. For although the perfect is developed from the ~imperfect 374 1, 71 | natural processes, yet the perfect must exist simply before ~ 375 1, 71 | Further, land animals are more perfect than birds and fishes ~which 376 1, 71 | forth eggs. But the more perfect has precedence in ~the order 377 1, 71 | generation also the more perfect is reached through the less 378 1, 71 | reached through the less perfect.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[72] Out. 379 1, 71 | generally ~speaking, more perfect than birds and fishes, not 380 1, 71 | on account of their more perfect life, and seems to imply 381 1, 71 | man, as being ~the most perfect grade, is not said to be 382 1, 71 | the corruption of the less perfect the more perfect should 383 1, 71 | the less perfect the more perfect should be ~generated. Hence 384 1, 72 | superfluous, for a thing is called perfect ~to which nothing is wanting 385 1, 72 | a thing is substantially perfect, and this perfection ~is 386 1, 72 | the whole universe, is the perfect ~beatitude of the Saints 387 1, 74 | species of colors one is more perfect than ~another; and the same 388 1, 74 | compared to one another as the perfect to the imperfect, since 389 1, 75 | from ~one another, as the perfect and imperfect; as in the 390 1, 75 | things, the ~animate are more perfect than the inanimate, and 391 1, 75 | inanimate, and animals more perfect ~than plants, and man than 392 1, 75 | is supplanted by a more perfect ~soul, which is both sensitive 393 1, 75 | universally of all more ~perfect forms with regard to the 394 1, 75 | is added is ~always more perfect. Therefore that form which 395 1, 75 | and so on, is the most ~perfect: and yet it inheres to matter 396 1, 75 | is susceptible of a more perfect form should itself be more 397 1, 75 | form should itself be more perfect. But the intellectual soul 398 1, 75 | intellectual soul is the most perfect of souls. ~Therefore since 399 1, 75 | greater variety of parts in perfect than in imperfect animals; 400 1, 75 | already said (A[4]), the more ~perfect form virtually contains 401 1, 75 | and specially the soul of perfect animals, is ~not equally 402 1, 76 | of things cannot acquire perfect goodness, but they ~acquire 403 1, 76 | to a higher order acquire perfect goodness by many movements; 404 1, 76 | those yet higher acquire perfect goodness by few movements; 405 1, 76 | those things which acquire perfect ~goodness without any movement 406 1, 76 | disposed is he who can acquire perfect health by means ~of many 407 1, 76 | best of ~all is he who has perfect health without any remedies. 408 1, 76 | can acquire universal and perfect goodness, because he can 409 1, 76 | in being able to acquire perfect goodness; ~although by many 410 1, 76 | it falls short of more ~perfect creatures.~Aquin.: SMT FP 411 1, 76 | the power ~of growth is perfect quantity, which is the end 412 1, 76 | they are to one another as ~perfect and imperfect.~Aquin.: SMT 413 1, 76 | of nature, forasmuch as perfect ~things are by their nature 414 1, 76 | imperfect, a ~thing comes to be perfect. Thus, according to the 415 1, 76 | agent and the end are more perfect, ~while the receptive principle, 416 1, 76 | principle, as such, is less perfect; it follows that ~those 417 1, 76 | as the imperfect from the perfect. But considered as ~receptive 418 1, 76 | receptive principles, the more perfect powers are principles with 419 1, 76 | opposed to one another, as ~perfect and imperfect; as also are 420 1, 76 | things naturally proceed from perfect things.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[ 421 1, 77 | have locomotive powers, as perfect animals, which require many 422 1, 77 | principles of movement in ~perfect animals, yet sense and appetite, 423 1, 77 | thing which is ~already perfect to "produce another like 424 1, 77 | these things in a more ~perfect way); and because those 425 1, 77 | most spiritual, the most perfect, and the most ~universal 426 1, 77 | while local motion is more perfect than, and naturally prior 427 1, 77 | suffice for the ~life of a perfect animal. If any of these 428 1, 77 | observe that for the life of a perfect animal, the animal ~should 429 1, 77 | may observe specially in perfect animals, which are ~moved 430 1, 77 | power, though in a less perfect manner.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[ 431 1, 77 | but ~the same, yet more perfect than in other animals.~Aquin.: 432 1, 78 | essentially such, ~immovable and perfect. Now the human soul is called 433 1, 78 | intelligible. Just as in ~other perfect natural things, besides 434 1, 78 | in like manner with other perfect animals. Now ~among these 435 1, 78 | lower things nothing is more perfect than the human soul. ~Wherefore 436 1, 78 | to their ~nature, possess perfect knowledge of intelligible 437 1, 78 | which one belongs to the perfect, the other ~to the imperfect. 438 1, 78 | is compared to ~it as the perfect to the imperfect.~Aquin.: 439 1, 78 | necessary things which have perfect being in truth; since it 440 1, 78 | imperfect being and truth. Now perfect and imperfect in ~the action 441 1, 78 | are variously ~compared as perfect and imperfect.~Aquin.: SMT 442 1, 79 | is found to have a more perfect ~existence in those things 443 1, 81 | regards the universal and perfect good, its capacity is not ~ 444 1, 81 | from imperfect things to perfect. And this also appears in 445 1, 81 | will is a more noble and perfect power than the intellect.~ 446 1, 81 | perfections ~to what they make perfect. But the habit which perfects 447 1, 81 | noble than the habits which perfect the ~intellect: for it is 448 1, 81 | generation and time is less ~perfect: for in one and in the same 449 1, 81 | order of nature is more perfect: for thus act precedes potentiality. 450 1, 83 | the thing ~known, the more perfect is its knowledge. Therefore 451 1, 83 | conditions of matter, has more perfect knowledge than the ~senses, 452 1, 83 | senses, sight has ~the most perfect knowledge, because it is 453 1, 83 | among intellects the more perfect is ~the more immaterial.~ 454 1, 83 | the Divine Essence is a perfect likeness of all, whatsoever ~ 455 1, 83 | knowledge is the total and perfect cause of intellectual ~knowledge, 456 1, 83 | a sensible thing. Now a perfect ~judgment concerning anything 457 1, 83 | our intellect to form a perfect judgment, while the senses 458 1, 84 | before accomplishing the ~perfect act. The perfect act of 459 1, 84 | accomplishing the ~perfect act. The perfect act of the intellect is 460 1, 84 | to potentiality, and the ~perfect to the imperfect: thus the 461 1, 84 | intellect does not acquire perfect knowledge by the ~first 462 1, 84 | is clear that there is a perfect understanding, than ~which 463 1, 84 | which none other is more perfect: and therefore there are 464 1, 84 | and ~whose sight is more perfect. The same applies to the 465 1, 84 | intellect itself, which is more perfect. For ~it is plain that the 466 1, 84 | intelligible causes. But in ~perfect knowledge, the knowledge 467 1, 86 | Essence of God, the pure and perfect act, is ~simply and perfectly 468 1, 86 | a habit fails in being a perfect act, it ~falls short in 469 1, 87 | potentiality. Now a subject is made perfect and receives its perfection ~ 470 1, 87 | we come to the point of perfect union ~between ourselves 471 1, 87 | very few, could reach to perfect felicity; which is against 472 1, 87 | an operation according to perfect virtue"; and after enumerating 473 1, 87 | knowledge of itself gives it a ~perfect and absolute knowledge of 474 1, 87 | immaterial things, but not to the perfect knowledge thereof; for there ~ 475 1, 87 | there existed in our souls a perfect image of God, as ~the Son 476 1, 87 | God, as ~the Son is the perfect image of the Father, our 477 1, 88 | understanding was not so perfect as regards what was possible 478 1, 88 | intellect fail to acquire perfect knowledge through the universal ~ 479 1, 88 | knowledge, so far from ~being perfect, would be confused and general. 480 1, 88 | for human souls to possess perfect and proper knowledge, they ~ 481 1, 88 | substances. For the soul is more perfect when joined to the body ~ 482 1, 88 | part of a whole is more perfect when it exists in that ~ 483 1, 88 | apart from the ~body has perfect knowledge of other separated 484 1, 88 | separated soul is, indeed, less perfect considering its ~nature 485 1, 88 | which, however, fail to give perfect knowledge ~of them, forasmuch 486 1, 88 | species does not receive perfect knowledge, but only a ~general 487 1, 88 | as the angels have to the perfect knowledge ~thereof. Now 488 1, 88 | here by study is proper and perfect; the ~knowledge of which 489 1, 88 | species the ~angels have a perfect and proper knowledge of 490 1, 88 | angels, by reason of their ~perfect intellect, through these 491 1, 89 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 3: Further, "perfect is that which can produce 492 1, 89 | substances are much more perfect than ~corporeal. Therefore, 493 1, 89 | the first things in ~their perfect natural state, as their 494 1, 90 | I answer that, As God is perfect in His works, He bestowed 495 1, 90 | capacity: "God's works are perfect" (Dt. ~32:4).
