Strana 25 - Thus there are two Books from whence I collect my Divinity; besides that written one of God, another of his servant Nature, that universal and publick Manuscript, that lies expans'd unto the Eyes of all, those that never saw him in the one, have discovered him in the other...
Strana 141 - Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
Strana 9 - I am not scrupulous to converse and live with them, to enter their churches in defect of ours, and either pray with them or for them.

Strana 95 - This noble affection falls not on vulgar and common constitutions, but on such as are mark'd for virtue : he that can love his friend with this noble ardour, will in a competent degree affect all.
Strana 53 - The whole creation is a mystery, and particularly that of man. At the blast of his mouth were the rest of the creatures made, and at his bare word they started out of nothing: but in the frame of man (as the text describes it) he played the sensible operator, and seemed not so much to create, as make him. When he had separated the materials of other creatures, there consequently resulted a form and soul; but, having raised the walls of man, he was driven to a second and harder creation of a substance...
