The Objects of Sensation one Source of Ideas.       §3. First, Our Senses, conversant about particular sensible
Objects, do convey into the Mind, several distinct Perceptions of things,
according to those various ways, wherein those Objects do affect
them: And thus we come by those Ideas, we have of Yellow, White,
Heat, Cold, Soft, Hard, Bitter, Sweet, and all those which we call
sensible qualities, which when I say the senses convey into the
mind, I mean, they from external Objects convey into the mind what
produces there those Perceptions. This great Source, of most of the
Ideas we have, depending wholly upon our Senses, and derived by
them to the Understanding, I call SENSATION.
