Sida 221 - The death of Socrates, peaceably philosophizing with his friends, appears the most agreeable that could be wished for; that of Jesus, expiring in the midst of agonizing pains, abused, insulted, and accused by a whole nation, is the most horrible that could be feared.
Sida 221 - What pre-possession, what blindness must it be to compare the son of Sophronicus to the son of Mary ! What an infinite disproportion there is between them ? Socrates dying without pain or ignominy, easily supported his character to the last ; and if his death, however easy, had not crowned his life, it might have been doubted whether Socrates, with all his wisdom, was any thing more than a vain sophist.
Sida 190 - How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
Sida 220 - What sublimity in his maxims ! what profound wisdom in his discourses! What presence of mind, what subtlety, what truth in his replies ! How great the command over his passions !

Sida 239 - Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
Sida 193 - Elysian air. Then are they happy, when by length of time The scurf is worn away, of each committed crime; No speck is left of their habitual stains; But the pure aether of the soul remains.
Sida 233 - God, to the heathen : and that it shall be left (as it ought to be left) to the minds of the persons whom God may call into the fellowship of His Son from among them, to assume for themselves such form of Church Government as to them shall appear most agreeable to the Word of God.
