Side 138 - We are all born in subjection, all born equally, high and low, governors and governed, in subjection to one great, immutable, pre-existent law. prior to all our devices, and prior to all our contrivances, paramount to all our ideas and all our sensations, antecedent to our very existence, by which we are knit and connected in the eternal frame of the universe, out of which we cannot stir.
