[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]
There are some things which possess form but are devoid of sound, as, for instance, jade and stones; others have sound, but are without form, such as wind and thunder; others, again, have both form and sound, such as men and animals; and lastly, there is a class devoid of both, namely, devils and spirits.
[mythology: Han Wên-kung, ]
