Page 192 - If you forgive me, I rejoice ; if you are angry, I can bear it : the die is cast, the book is written ; to be read either now or by posterity, I care not which : it may well wait a century for a reader, as God has waited six thousand years for an observer.
Page 138 - Let every soul be subject to higher powers : for there is no power but from God ; and those that are, are ordained of God.
Page 33 - And the Catholic Faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity, Neither confounding the Persons: nor dividing the Substance (Essence).
