第 35 頁 - English communion that gives all their life and efficacy to them. It is the spirit of the English constitution, which, infused through the mighty mass, pervades, feeds, unites, invigorates, vivifies every part of the empire, even down to the minutest member.
第 26 頁 - I rejoice that America has resisted. Three millions of people, so dead to all the feelings of liberty as voluntarily to submit to be slaves, would have been fit instruments to make slaves of the rest.

The mystery how shall we explain, For sure as Dowdeswell said, " Thus early if they're fit to reign, They must be fit to wed ? " Quoth Tom to Dick, " Thou art a fool, And little knowest of life : Alas ! 'tis easier far to rule A kingdom than a wife.

第 224 頁 - Catholic Doctrine of the Atonement. An Historical Inquiry into its Development in the Church, with an Introduction on the Principle of Theological Development. By H.
第 49 頁 - I am resolved not to throw myself into the hands of Opposition at all events, and shall certainly, if things go as they seem to lead, know what my conscience as well as honour dictates as the only way left for me.
