Page 167 - A man that hath no virtue in himself ever envieth virtue in others; for men's minds will either feed upon their own good, or upon others' evil; and who wanteth the one will prey upon the other; and whoso is out of hope to attain to another's virtue, will seek to come at even hand,* by depressing another's fortune.

The words which you hear from me are, indeed, spoken by my mouth, but they flow from my heart.
Page 4 - I now remember you have a right to require of me to be resolute in defence of the church. I have been, by the circumstances of my life, and by conviction, led to support toleration to the utmost extent of which it is justly capable ; but toleration must not be suffered to go into licentiousness — it has its bounds, which it is my duty, and which I arn resolved, to maintain.
