Strona 204 - 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.
Strona 320 - Apolline crines, inpubesque genas et eburnea colla, decusque oris et in niveo mixtum candore ruborem cunctaque miratur, quibus est mirabilis ipse. se cupit inprudens et, qui probat, ipse probatur, dumque petit, petitur pariterque accendit et ardet.
Strona 172 - A gust of contrarie winds, the croking of a flight of Ravens, the false pase of a Horse, the casual flight of an Eagle, a dreame, a sodaine voyce, a false signe, a mornings mist, an evening fogge, are enough to overthrow, sufficient to overwhelme and able to pull him to the ground.
Strona 363 - Wee have taught Ladies to blush, onely by hearing that named, which they nothing feare to doe.

Ceremonie forbids us by words to expresse lawfull and naturall things ; and we beleeve it.
Strona 173 - They are moved, stirred and removed in their motions, by the same springs and wards, that wee are in ours. The same reason that makes us chide and braule, and fall out with any of our neighbours, causeth a warre to follow betweene Princes ; The same reason that makes us whip or beat a lackey, maketh a Prince (if hee apprehend it) to spoyle and waste a whole Province.

Strona 148 - And in that prety cunning contexture, and admirable framing of their houses, would birds rather fit themselves with a round, than a square figure, with an obtuse, than a right angle, except they knew both the commodities and effects of them? Would they (suppose you) first take water and then clay, unlesse they guessed that the hardnesse of the one is softned by the moistnesse of the other?
Strona 330 - ... substance could not twise be found in one self estate : for by the sodainesse and lightnesse of change, sometimes it wasteth, and other times it assembleth ; now it comes and now it goes ; in such sort, that he who beginneth to be borne, never comes to the perfection of being. For, this being...
Strona 141 - ... and service? Is it possible to imagine anything so ridiculous as this miserable and wretched creature, which is not so much as master of himself, exposed and subject to offences of all things, and yet dareth call himself Master and Emperor of this Universe? In whose power it is not to know the least part of it, much less to command the same.
Strona 329 - In few, there is no constant existence, neither of our being, nor of the objects. And we, and our judgement, and all mortall things else do uncessantly rowle, turne, and passe away.
