Stran 352 - I shall call that my country, where I may most glorify God, and enjoy the presence of my dearest friends.
Stran 436 - This liberty is the proper end and object of authority, and cannot subsist without it; and it is a liberty to that only which is good, just, and honest. This liberty you are to stand for, with the hazard (not only of your goods, but) of your lives, if need be. Whatsoever crosseth this, is not authority, but a distemper thereof.

Stran 385 - But, if God should not delight to furnish some of their posterity with gifts fit for magistracy, we should expose them rather to reproach and prejudice, and the commonwealth with them, than exalt them to honor, if we should call them forth, when God doth not, to public authority.
Stran 358 - We here enjoy God and Jesus Christ," wrote Winthrop to his wife, whom pregnancy had detained in England, " and is not this enough ? I thank God I like so well to be here, as I do not repent my coming. I would not have altered my course, though I had foreseen all these afflictions. I never had more content of mind.
Stran 261 - Romish party by their wanton disfranchisement. An act concerning religion confirmed the freedom of conscience, provided the liberty were not extended to "popery, prelacy, 2 or licentiousness
Stran 412 - Hampden, that he had a head to contrive, a tongue to persuade, and a hand to execute, any mischief.
