Strana 202 - Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
Strana 364 - ... glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and good will to men.
Strana 157 - Tis one and the same nature that rolls on her course, and whoever has sufficiently considered the present state of things, might certainly conclude as to both the future and the past.
Strana 245 - Man is certainly stark mad ; he cannot make a worm, and yet he will be making gods by dozens. Hear Trismegistus in praise of our sufficiency : " Of all the wonderful things, it surmounts all wonder that man could find out the divine nature and make it...
Strana 90 - But boldly to confess the truth (for since one has passed the barriers of impudence, off with the bridle), his way of writing, and that of all other long-winded authors, appears to me very tedious: for his prefaces, definitions, divisions, and etymologies take up the greatest part of his work: whatever there is of life and marrow is smothered and lost in the long preparation.
Strana 17 - Good unexpected, evils unforeseen, Appear by turns, as fortune shifts the scene. Some, raised aloft, come tumbling down amain ; Then fall so hard, they bound and rise again.
Strana 373 - I care not so much what I am in the opinion of others, as what I am in my own; I would be rich of myself, and not by borrowing.
Strana 12 - The next, in place and punishment, are they Who prodigally threw their souls away : Fools, who, repining at their wretched state, And loathing anxious life, suborned their fate. With late repentance, now they would retrieve The bodies they forsook, and wish to live ; Their pains and poverty desire to bear, To view the light of heaven, and breathe the vital air : But Fate forbids ; the Stygian floods oppose, And, with nine circling streams, the captive souls inclose.
Strana 45 - No one since has followed the track: 'tis a rugged road, more so than it seems, to follow a pace so rambling and uncertain, as that of the soul; to penetrate the dark profundities of its intricate internal windings; to choose and lay hold of so many little nimble motions; 'tis a new and extraordinary undertaking, and that withdraws us from the common and most recommended employments of the world.
Strana 90 - I have spent an hour in reading him, which is a great deal for me, and try to recollect what I have thence extracted of juice and substance, for the most part I find nothing but wind; for he is not yet come to the arguments that serve to his purpose, and to the reasons that properly help to form the knot I seek.
