Side 238 - Happy had it been for the heathen world, if, upon the subject of morality, their oracles had been invariably silent. The few sentiments, which they did deliver, were not always grounded upon the severe principles of reason and truth: they varied with the fluctuation of human opinions, and were even accommodated to the prejudices, the passions, and the vices of their votaries.
