Suositut otteet

Sivu 95 - I cannot praise a fugitive and cloistered virtue, unexercised and unbreathed, that never sallies out and sees her adversary, but slinks out of the race where that immortal garland is to be run for, not without dust and heat.
Sivu 122 - Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. 31 [Now] we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
Sivu 50 - For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves. Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the meanwhile accusing, or else excusing one another), in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
Sivu 95 - That which purifies us is trial, and trial is by what is contrary. That virtue therefore which is but a youngling in the contemplation of evil, and knows not the utmost that vice promises to her followers, and rejects it, is but a blank virtue, not a pure ; her whiteness is but an excremental whiteness, which was the reason why our sage and serious poet Spenser, whom I dare be known to think a better teacher than Scotus or Aquinas...
Sivu 145 - A miracle is a violation of the laws of nature ; and as a firm and unalterable experience has established these laws, the proof against a miracle, from the very nature of the fact, is as entire as any argument from experience can possibly be imagined.
Sivu 164 - Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me, seeth him that sent me. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
Sivu 242 - But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
Sivu 95 - ... our sage and serious poet SPENSER, whom I dare be known to think a better teacher than SCOTUS or AQUINAS, describing true temperance under the person of GUION, brings him in with his palmer through the cave of MAMMON, and the bower of earthly bliss, that he might see and know, and yet abstain.
Sivu 122 - Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing . They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us?
Sivu 242 - For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
