Strona 196 - My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
Strona 163 - He did look upon equity as a part of the common law, and one of the grounds of it ; and therefore, as near as he could, he did always reduce it to certain rules and principles, that men might study it as a science, and not think the administration of it had any thing arbitrary in it.
Strona 163 - ... would never suffer his opinion in any case to be known till he was obliged to declare it judicially ; and he concealed his opinion in great cases so carefully, that the rest of the judges in the same court could never perceive it : his reason was, because every judge ought to give sentence according to his own persuasion and conscience, and not to be swayed by any respect or deference to another man's opinion : and by this means...
Strona 162 - And besides the great temper he expressed in all his public employments, in his family he was a very gentle master : he was tender of all his servants ; he never turned any away, except they were so faulty that there was no hope of reclaiming them.

Strona 163 - ... that the barons have immediately retracted their votes and concurred with him. He hath sat as a judge in all the courts of law, and in two of them as chief; but still wherever he sat, all business of consequence followed him, and no man was content to sit down by the judgment of any other court, till the case...
Strona 83 - Never was death more welcome to any mortal, I think. Though the pangs of death were strong, yet that far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory made him endure those bitter pains with much patience and courage. In the extremity of his pains, he desired his eldest brother to lay him a little lower, and to take away one pillow from him, that he might die with more ease.
Strona 158 - But as he lamented the proceedings too rigorously against the Nonconformists, so he declared himself always of the side of the Church of England, and said those of the separation were good men, but they had narrow souls, who would break the peace of the Church about such inconsiderable matters as the points in difference were.
