When an effect is better known to us than its ~cause, 4 1, 2 | long as its effects are better known to us; because since 5 1, 3 | that which is composite is better than that which is simple; 6 1, 3 | chemical compounds are better than simple elements, and 7 1, 3 | us composite things are better than simple things, ~because 8 1, 3 | be quite accurate, ~it is better to say that they are, not 9 1, 5 | said of Judas: "It were better for him, if that man had 10 1, 11 | reduced into one order by one ~better than by many: because one 11 1, 12 | understand one and the same thing better than ~another, this would 12 1, 12 | to express divine things better ~than those do which we 13 1, 14 | causes ~themselves, much better than we can; but still not 14 1, 18 | of life.

Now the better a thing ~is, the more like 32 1, 20 | it to God. Therefore the better things are more ~loved by 33 1, 20 | that God loves more the better things . For it has been 34 1, 20 | reason why some things are better than ~others, is that God 35 1, 20 | that ~He loves more the better things.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[ 36 1, 20 | angels; for that nature ~is better, especially on the ground 37 1, 20 | natural condition an ~angel is better than a man.

Such knowledge, 162 1, 88 | prerogatives enjoyed by the better man.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[89] 163 1, 90 | 7): "And because ~it is better so, not absolutely, but 164 1, 93 | good-will can obtain nothing better than the vision of the Divine ~ 165 1, 94 | were the case, man would be better off after ~sinning.~Aquin.: 166 1, 95 | beautiful, and all ways better disposed; so that, ~however, 167 1, 96 | restored into something better, as we shall explain further 168 1, 102 | always find what is the better. But it "is ~better that 169 1, 102 | the better. But it "is ~better that two should be together 170 1, 102 | itself is a more apt and a better ~cause of unity than several 171 1, 102 | Therefore a multitude is ~better governed by one than by 172 1, 102 | individual goods, then two are better than ~one. But if we consider 173 1, 102 | them, inasmuch as one is better than another; and one ~is 174 1, 102 | 1~OBJ 2: Further, it is better that a thing be done by 175 1, 102 | government will be so much the better in the degree the ~things 176 1, 105 | understands the same thing better than the pupil who learns 177 1, 107 | to know ~lower things is better than to love them; and to 178 1, 107 | things, ~God above all, is better than to know them.~Aquin.: 179 1, 111 | 2:3): "Esteeming others better ~than themselves."~Aquin.: 180 1, 111 | multitude; because whatever is better is more intended and more ~ 181 1, 114 | constellations corporeal matter is ~better disposed for the result 182 1, 116 | alone. Therefore ~it is better to say, that by a strong 183 2, 2 | Nom. v), that "to be" is better ~than "to live," and "to 184 2, 2 | live," and "to live" is better than all that follows. But 185 2, 2 | that things that live are better than things that exist, ~ 186 2, 2 | exist, ~and intelligent better than living things.~Aquin.: 187 2, 5 | happens through his being better disposed or ~ordered to 188 2, 5 | it ~seems that he must be better equipped than they. But 189 2, 5 | Coel. ii, 12). Thus he is better disposed to health ~who 190 2, 7 | knowledge proceeds from the better known to the less known. ~ 191 2, 7 | found to be good or ~evil, better or worse: and this diversity 192 2, 8 | the shunning of evil is better ~described as "nolition": 193 2, 9 | Nothing hinders that which is better simply and in itself, ~from 194 2, 12 | another because it is the ~better of the two. Now one of the 195 2, 12 | reasons for which one thing is better ~than another is that it 196 2, 13 | something that seems in some way better. Therefore every ~choice 197 2, 16 | irrational animals. For ~it is better to enjoy than to use, because, 198 2, 16 | their objects, enjoyment is better than use; ~because that 199 2, 16 | appetible absolutely is better than that which is ~appetible 200 2, 18 | circumstance that makes an action better or worse, ~places the moral 201 2, 18 | circumstance that makes an action better or worse, places a ~moral 202 2, 18 | that which makes an action better or ~worse, makes it differ 203 2, 18 | circumstance that makes an action ~better or worse, constitutes a 204 2, 18 | cannot make ~the action better or worse; because what is 205 2, 18 | circumstance that ~makes an action better or worse, constitutes a 206 2, 18 | that makes a moral action better or worse, places it ~in 207 2, 18 | that makes a moral action ~better or worse, changes its species.~ 208 2, 19 | reason, the intention can be better, and the will ~less good.~ 209 2, 20 | will in itself is ~made better in good things, or worse 210 2, 20 | and in this respect, is better or worse. Thirdly, in point 211 2, 20 | tends to good or evil, the better or worse it is.~Aquin.: 212 2, 20 | action is specifically ~better, if better results can follow 213 2, 20 | specifically ~better, if better results can follow from 214 2, 22 | than when it is for the better: hence sorrow ~is more properly 215 2, 24 | action is like to God, the better it ~is: hence the Apostle 216 2, 24 | ix, 5). Therefore it is better ~to do such like deeds without 217 2, 24 | deliberately. Therefore he ~does a better deed, who does well without 218 2, 24 | Accordingly just as it is better that man should both will 219 2, 31 | perfect; and because it is better known, since the intellect 220 2, 31 | sensible goods are known better and more generally: and, 221 2, 32 | to men who are ~wise and better than others; the result 222 2, 34 | greatest good cannot be made better by ~addition. But pleasure 223 2, 34 | addition. But pleasure is made better by addition; since pleasure ~ 224 2, 34 | together with virtue is better than pleasure without virtue. 225 2, 34 | no addition can ~make it better: whereas in regard to other 226 2, 34 | true ~that any good becomes better by the addition of another 227 2, 35 | bodily pains, which are ~better known, than in reference 228 2, 35 | evil, forasmuch as evil is ~better known by an inward apprehension.~ 229 2, 38 | burdens. ~The second and better reason is because when a 230 2, 39 | according to Eccles. 7:3: "It is better to go to the ~house of mourning, 231 2, 39 | the greatest good of the better part: ~while the supreme 232 2, 39 | of which the ~pleasure is better. Consequently, a pleasure 233 2, 39 | 3: That which harms the better thing is worse than that 234 2, 40 | effect ~from a cause which is better known; for the apprehensive 235 2, 40 | power knows its ~own act better than that of the appetite.~ 236 2, 42 | which ~lasts long is no better than that which lasts but 237 2, 42 | which lasts for ever any better than that which is not everlasting": 238 2, 42 | And such like good is no better ~for lasting long or for 239 2, 44 | lover, what he loves seems ~better; to him that fears, what 240 2, 45 | good is lovable, what is better is yet more lovable. But 241 2, 52 | greater ~is the same as to be better," as Augustine says (De 242 2, 61 | 2~Others, however, with better reason, take these four 243 2, 66 | And among these, one is better than another, according 244 2, 66 | men. Because one man is better disposed than another to 245 2, 66 | greater habituation, or a better natural disposition, ~or 246 2, 66 | Whether the moral virtues are better than the intellectual virtues?~ 247 2, 66 | that the moral virtues are better than the ~intellectual. 248 2, 66 | necessary, and more lasting, is ~better. Now the moral virtues are " 249 2, 66 | alone. Therefore moral is better than intellectual virtue.~ 250 2, 66 | intellectual virtue is better than moral virtue.~Aquin.: 251 2, 66 | hinders something from ~being better simply, e.g. "learning than 252 2, 66 | than riches," and yet not better ~relatively, i.e. "for one 253 2, 66 | merely that moral virtue is ~better relatively.~Aquin.: SMT 254 2, 66 | moral virtues. ~For it is better to give of one's own than 255 2, 66 | certain about a higher and ~better object, is preferable to 256 2, 66 | Animal. i, 5) that "it is better to know a little about ~ 257 2, 67 | nature, than which nothing is better or more lovable, ~that Nature, 258 2, 71 | more lasting a good is, the better it is, so ~the longer an 259 2, 71 | Metaph. ix, 19. For it is better to do well than to be able 260 2, 71 | Therefore it would have been better to say that sin is against ~ 261 2, 73 | because the life ~of grace is better than the life of nature, 262 2, 81 | OBJ 2: Further, a man can better transmit to another, that 263 2, 81 | another: thus fire heats ~better than hot water does. Now 264 2, 83 | Q[118], A[3].
