Page 249 - Almighty hath not built Here for his envy, will not drive us hence : Here we may reign secure, and, in my choice, To reign is worth ambition, though in hell : Better to reign in hell, than serve in heaven.
Page 106 - All things come alike to all : there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked ; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not : as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.
