For ~the covetous man, 107 2, 72 | they proceed from the same motive. For the angry ~man, through 108 2, 72 | wherever ~we find a different motive inclining the intention 109 2, 72 | Now it is evident that the motive for ~sinning, in sins by 110 2, 72 | is not the same as the motive for sinning, in ~sins of 111 2, 72 | one another, just as ~the motive in the sin of intemperance 112 2, 72 | bodily pleasures, while ~the motive in the sin of insensibility 113 2, 72 | wherever there is a special ~motive for sinning, there is a 114 2, 72 | species of sin, because the ~motive for sinning is the end and 115 2, 72 | corrupted, there is but one ~motive: thus the illiberal man, 116 2, 72 | illiberal man, for the same motive, takes when he ought ~not, 117 2, 72 | save when there is another motive.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[72] A[ 118 2, 73 | reason may be taken from the motive, since the stronger the 119 2, 75 | is some ~apparent good as motive, yet lacking the due motive, 120 2, 75 | motive, yet lacking the due motive, viz. the rule of ~reason 121 2, 75 | or the Divine law, this motive which is an apparent good, ~ 122 2, 75 | very fact that the external motive causes of sin ~do not lead 123 2, 77 | subject to its governing and motive ~power. Hence a member is 124 2, 77 | since it has in itself a motive for ~pardon [venia]. Since 125 2, 79 | its cause, ~but not to the motive power, which nevertheless 126 2, 83 | of the soul to ~which the motive cause of that sin primarily 127 2, 83 | primarily pertains: thus if the motive ~cause of a sin is sensual 128 2, 85 | the other sensitive and motive powers. ~Whereas the fact 129 2, 93 | law by way of an inward motive ~principle: and in this 130 2, 93 | good, there is the added motive of ~grace and virtue.~Aquin.: 131 2, 96 | said ~is according to the motive for saying it: because things 132 2, 96 | should take account of the ~motive of the lawgiver, rather 133 2, 102 | in that member. A third motive may have been to revile 134 2, 102 | abstained, for some other motive, from eating them, as stated 135 2, 109 | and with regard to the motive of loving, and the mode 136 2, 1 | there was a ~sufficient motive for those who referred one 137 2, 2 | on account of some slight motive, ~as in one who "suspects"; 138 2, 2 | either has a ~sufficient motive for believing, or he has 139 2, 2 | If he has a sufficient ~motive for his belief, this does 140 2, 2 | he ~has not a sufficient motive for believing, this is a 141 2, 2 | believer has sufficient motive for believing, for he is ~ 142 2, 5 | another; or to their primary motive, which is perfect obedience 143 2, 22 | moved by some extrinsic motive power. For ~this is contrary 144 2, 23 | inclined to sin unless by some ~motive for sinning. Now charity 145 2, 23 | of its act excludes every motive for ~sinning. But it happens 146 2, 23 | then it is possible for a motive to intervene for sinning, 147 2, 23 | and if we ~consent to this motive, we lose charity.~Aquin.: 148 2, 25 | equality of love but the ~motive of love. For the principal 149 2, 28 | Whether evil is properly the motive of mercy?~Aquin.: SMT SS 150 2, 28 | speaking, evil is not the motive of ~mercy. For, as shown 151 2, 28 | evil, as such, is not the motive of mercy.~Aquin.: SMT SS 152 2, 28 | sorrow. Now evil is the motive of sorrow. Therefore it 153 2, 28 | sorrow. Therefore it is the ~motive of mercy.~Aquin.: SMT SS 154 2, 28 | Para. 3/3~Accordingly the motive of "mercy," being something 155 2, 30 | virtue which regards the ~motive for doing those acts. Now 156 2, 30 | doing those acts. Now the motive for giving alms is to relieve ~ 157 2, 30 | for God's ~sake," which motive belongs to mercy, as stated 158 2, 50 | Divine Reason, as a lower ~motive principle to a higher: for 159 2, 51 | corrupted for the same ~motive, the species of sin is not 160 2, 58 | a man, without any solid motive, forms a ~judgment on some 161 2, 62 | great care, so as to find a motive for acquitting the innocent: 162 2, 71 | or for some ~unnecessary motive, it is not a mortal sin, 163 2, 81 | 2: As stated above, our motive in praying is, not Divine ~ 164 2, 84 | given me," which second motive is common among all ~people. 165 2, 85 | ministers of the Church. The motive may be either the need of 166 2, 95 | for some urgent or useful motive, this ~is not to tempt God: 167 2, 95 | without any useful or urgent motive, this is to tempt God implicitly. ~ 168 2, 95 | prayers, they are moved ~by a motive of necessity or usefulness 169 2, 95 | without any useful or urgent ~motive, they would be tempting 170 2, 95 | provided there be just motive of urgency, or a ~pious 171 2, 95 | of urgency, or a ~pious motive of usefulness, and other 172 2, 95 | A[1]). Hence there was a motive of urgency to pay it, ~through 173 2, 95 | obligation of the Law, and also a motive of usefulness, as ~stated 174 2, 101 | hand it ~is the primary motive for showing honor, in so 175 2, 102 | things are moved by their ~motive causes. Now just a God is 176 2, 104 | he ~does anything from a motive of friendship, if indeed 177 2, 104 | friendship, if indeed that be his motive, ~it is no longer called 178 2, 106 | who are not influenced by motive of ~virtue are prevented 179 2, 111 | sometimes on account of the motive for sinning; thus a ~mischievous 180 2, 111 | boasting proceeds from a viler motive, namely, the ~desire of 181 2, 111 | himself for some ~other motive, for instance that he may 182 2, 117 | yet on account of the ~motive for which he does so it 183 2, 122 | as its first ~and chief motive cause, being the virtue 184 2, 122 | thereto as being its proper motive cause, being the virtue 185 2, 122 | comparison with its ~first motive cause, which is the love 186 2, 126 | fortitude, they ~differ as to motive, as stated above (Q[123], 187 2, 136 | pleasure itself is a stronger ~motive of attraction than sorrow, 188 2, 136 | the lack of pleasure is a motive of ~withdrawal, since lack 189 2, 140 | avoid which the principal motive is the necessity of preserving 190 2, 140 | the more necessary ~the motive of sin the less grievous 191 2, 140 | the part of the object or motive ~matter.~Aquin.: SMT SS 192 2, 140 | so pleasure which is the motive of intemperance. ~Secondly, 193 2, 142 | virtue, by reason of its ~motive cause, which is a base action 194 2, 144 | whenever we find a special motive why a passion departs from 195 2, 145 | account of some special motive, for a man to take ~less 196 2, 145 | when there is a reasonable motive, and especially if the ~ 197 2, 146 | circumstances include no special motive ~connected with eating, 198 2, 155 | Nevertheless they differ as to motive. For piety ~relieves a neighbor' 199 2, 157 | body, and not for some ~motive of justice the consideration 200 2, 161 | fruit was not their first motive for sinning, but the persuasive 201 2, 167 | clothes, or for some similar motive.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[169] A[ 202 2, 178 | intellect, but as regards the motive cause of the ~exercise of 203 2, 178 | contemplative life has its ~motive cause on the part of the 204 2, 178 | contemplative life. Now ~motive causes do not enter into 205 2, 178 | of which charity is the motive, as ~stated above (AA[1], 206 2, 185 | led to beg by a twofold motive. First, by the desire to 207 2, 185 | unlawful; secondly, by a motive of necessity or usefulness. 208 2, 185 | necessity or usefulness. The motive is ~one of necessity if 209 2, 185 | save begging; ~and it is a motive of usefulness if he wishes 210 2, 187 | he do so for a reasonable motive; ~and if others are scandalized, 211 2, 187 | account of some ~reasonable motive, such as sickness, weakness, 212 2, 187 | some special and evident motive, and then with the superior' 213 3, 8 | reason of the sensitive and motive power there ~ruling; hence 214 3, 8 | intrinsic influence, inasmuch as motive and sensitive force ~flow 215 3, 15 | there is a difference of motive or object; for the object 216 3, 15 | object; for the object and motive of ~pain is hurt perceived 217 3, 15 | wounded; ~but the object and motive of sorrow is anything hurtful 218 3, 25 | is not the object but the motive of honor. And ~therefore 219 3, 29 | words is strengthened, the motive for a lie is removed. If 220 3, 29 | being espoused, she had no motive for lying, since ~a woman' 221 3, 31 | R.O. 2 Para. 6/7~This last motive is the truest: Jerome also 222 3, 31 | Christ's genealogy. ~Another motive was to show the emptiness 223 3, 38 | have given His ~disciples a motive for yet greater envy." Thirdly, 224 3, 38 | and there was no further motive for ~the divergence of opinions 225 3, 40 | wild - "or a god," ~if his motive be the contemplation of 226 3, 40 | sin, He had not the same motive as Solomon for ~avoiding 227 3, 47 | by Himself?~(2) From what motive did He deliver Himself up 228 3, 49 | according to the hidden motive of His judgments; ~still, 229 3, 66 | Para. 4/4~But now that this motive has ceased, trine immersion 230 3, 70 | never anticipated for any motive, however urgent.
