Seite 225 - This is a misery much to be lamented ; for though they were burning and shining lights in their times, yet they penetrated not into the whole counsel of God ; but were they now living, would be as willing to embrace farther light, as that which they first received.
Seite 224 - If God reveal any thing to you, by any other » instrument of his, be as ready to receive it as ever you were to receive any truth by my ministry ; for I am verily persuaded, I am very confident, the Lord has more truth yet to break forth out of his holy word.
Seite 327 - Alas, I have lost every thing ; my understanding leaves me, my memory fails me, my utterance fails me ; but I thank God my charity holds out still ; I find that rather grows than fails.
