Stran 131 - I choose to solve the controversy with this small distinction, and it belongs to all three ; any government is free to the people under it (whatever be the frame) where the laws rule, and the people are a party to those laws, and more than this is tyranny, oligarchy, and confusion.
Stran 33 - I have Old England set against me, and do you think I will have New England likewise?
Stran 153 - And thou, Philadelphia, the virgin settlement of this province, named before thou wert born, what love, what care, what service, and what travail, has there been to bring thee forth and preserve thee from such as would abuse and defile thee!
Stran 108 - William Coleman, then a merchant's clerk, about my age, who had the coolest, clearest head, the best heart, and the exactest morals of almost any man I ever met with.
Stran 153 - O that thou mayest be kept from the evil that would overwhelm thee; that, faithful to the God of thy mercies, in the life of righteousness thou mayest be preserved to the end ! My soul prays to God for thee, that thou mayest stand in the day of trial, that thy children may be blessed of the Lord, and thy people saved by his power.

Government is not an end, but a means ; he who thinks it to be an end, aims at profit, to make a trade of it ; but he who thinks it to be a means, understands the true end of government.
Stran 64 - Times ruin'd as a Master-Printer, to be Nine Times in Prison, one of which was Six Years together, and often reduced to the most wretched Circumstances, hunted as a Partridge upon the Mountains, and persecuted with the most abominable Lies the Devil himself could invent, or Malice utter ; and yet all this while never any wise, good or even honest Man has been his Enemy, or knew any Evil of him, bating for the little Mistakes or Peccadilloes of human Nature.
Stran 145 - Whereas Our Trusty and Well-beloved Subject William Penn Esq; Son and Heir of Sir William Penn deceased, out of A commendable Desire to enlarge our English Empire, and promote such useful Commodities, as may be of Benefit to us and our Dominions, as also to reduce the savage Natives, by gentle and just Manners, to the Love of Civil Society and Christian Religion...
Stran 149 - I have been made willing to relinquish and forsake all the vain fashions, enticing pleasures, alluring honours, and glittering glories of this transitory world...
