Sida 79 - Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
Sida 52 - Could trammel up' the consequence, and catch, With his surcease,* success ; that but this blow Might be the be-all and the end-all here, . But here, upon this bank and shoal of time, — We'd jump the life to come. — But, in these cases, We still have judgment here ; that we but teach Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return To plague the inventor : This even-handed justice Commends11 the ingredients of our poison'd chalice To our own lips.
