Página 14 - Thus there are two Books from whence I collect my Divinity ; besides that written one of GOD, another of His servant Nature, that universal and publick manuscript, that lies expans'd unto the Eyes of all : those that never saw Him in the one, have discovered Him in the other.
Página 121 - I do embrace it : for even that vulgar and tavern music, which makes one man merry, another mad, strikes in me a deep fit of devotion, and a profound contemplation of the first composer ; there is something in it of divinity more than the ear discovers : it is an hieroglyphical and shadowed lesson of the whole world, and creatures of God; such a melody to the ear, as the whole world, well understood, would afford the understanding.

Página 295 - Now since these dead bones have already out-lasted the living ones of Methuselah, and in a yard under ground, and thin walls of clay, out-worn all the strong and specious buildings above it; and quietly rested under the drums and tramplings of three conquests...
Página 297 - Pyramids, arches, obelisks were but the irregularities of vainglory and wild enormities of ancient magnanimity.
