Side 352 - I thank God, there are no free schools nor printing, and I hope we shall not have these hundred years; for learning has brought disobedience, and heresy, and sects into the world, and printing has divulged them, and libels against the best government. God keep us from both!
Side 276 - Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
Side 327 - ... an inward prompting which now grew daily upon me, that by labour and in'tense study, (which I take to be my portion in this life,) joined with the strong propensity of nature, I might perhaps leave something so written to aftertimes, as they should not willingly let it die.
Side 595 - Conybeare and Howson.— The Life and Epistles of Saint Paul: Comprising a complete Biography of the Apostle, and a Translation of his Epistles inserted in Chronological Order. By the Rev. WJ CONYBEARE, MA, late Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge ; and the Rev. JS HOWSON, MA, Principal of the Collegiate Institution, Liverpool.
Side 90 - Stoop then, and wash. — How many ages hence, Shall this our lofty scene be acted over, In states unborn, and accents yet unknown ? Bru.
Side 332 - If an academy should be established for the cultivation of our style ; which I, who can never wish to see dependence multiplied, hope the spirit of English liberty will hinder or destroy, let them, instead of compiling grammars and dictionaries, endeavour, with all their influence, to stop the license of translators, whose idleness and ignorance, if it be suffered to proceed, will reduce us to babble a dialect of France.

Side 557 - To the inmost mind, There exercise all his fierce accidents, And on her purest spirits prey, As on entrails, joints, and limbs, With answerable pains, but more intense, Though void of corporal sense.
