Ideas in the Mind, Qualities in Bodies.       §7. To discover the nature of our Ideas the better, and to dis-
course of them intelligibly, it will be convenient to distinguish
them, as they are Ideas or Perceptions in our Minds; and as they are
modifications of matter in the Bodies that cause such Perceptions in
us: that so we may not think (as perhaps usually is done) that they
are exactly the Images and Resemblances of something inherent in the
subject; most of those of Sensation being in the Mind no more the
likeness of something existing without us, than the Names, that
stand for them, are the likeness of our Ideas, which yet upon hearing,
they are apt to excite in us.
