Page 155 - Spit, fire! spout, rain! Nor rain, wind, thunder, fire, are my daughters: I tax not you, you elements, with unkindness; I never gave you kingdom, call'd you children, You owe me no subscription: then, let fall Your horrible pleasure; here I stand, your slave, A poor, infirm, weak, and despis'd old man.
Page 209 - ... de nos jambes, cela est impossible et monstrueux. Ny que l'homme se monte au dessus de soy et de l'humanité : car il ne peut voir que de ses yeux, ny saisir que de ses prises. Il s'eslevera si Dieu lui preste extraordinairement la main ; il s'eslevera, abandonnant et renonçant à ses propres moyens, et se laissant hausser et soubslever par les moyens purement célestes.
Page 209 - Cover your heads, and mock not flesh and blood With solemn reverence : throw away respect, Tradition, form, and ceremonious duty, For you have but mistook me all this while: I live with bread like you, feel want, Taste grief, need friends: subjected thus, How can you say to me I am a king?

Page 185 - ... such in ourselves, which as good men we endeavour all we can to be superior to, and which we find we every day conquer as we grow better.
Page 192 - The man that makes his toe What he his heart should make Shall of a corn cry woe, And turn his sleep to wake. For there was never yet fair woman but she made mouths in a glass.
Page 207 - The most perfect philosophy of the natural kind only staves off our ignorance a little longer ; as perhaps the most perfect philosophy of the moral or metaphysical kind serves only to discover larger portions of it. Thus the observation of human blindness and weakness is the result of all philosophy, and meets us at every turn, in spite of our endeavours to elude or avoid it.
Page 74 - Idola & divinae mentis Ideas. Humanae mentis idola nil aliud sunt quam abstractiones ad placitum: Divinae mentis ideae sunt vera signacula Creatoris super creaturas, prout in materia per lineas veras et exquisitas imprimuntur & terminantur.
Page 2 - De negotio coenac non aliud adhuc susceptum video, nisi ut hac occasione in intricatas obscuras et profanas quaestiones ac rixas conjecti animi a conspectu doctrinae necessariae tamquam turbine quodam auferantur. Ego mihi ita conscius sum non aliam ob causam unquam theologica tractasse, nisi ut vitam emendarem.
