Seite 52 - Society cannot exist unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere, and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.
Seite 260 - Will you. to the utmost of your power maintain the laws of God, the true profession of the gospel, and the Protestant reformed religion established by the law? And will you preserve unto the bishops and clergy of this realm, and to the churches committed to their charge, all such rights and privileges as by law do or shall appertain unto them, or any of them?
Seite 51 - Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites...
Seite 165 - I may assume, that the awful Author of our being is the Author of our place in the order of existence ; and that having disposed and marshalled us by a divine tactic, not according to our will, but according to his, he has, in and by that disposition, virtually subjected us to act the part which belongs to the place assigned us.
Seite 155 - Sovereignty, as a matter of right, appertains to the Nation only, and not to any individual ; and a Nation has at all times an inherent indefeasible right to abolish any form of Government it finds inconvenient, and to establish such as accords with its interest, disposition, and happiness.
Seite 141 - AN ACT DECLARING THE RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES OF THE SUBJECT, AND SETTLING THE SUCCESSION OF THE CROWN.

Seite 77 - the most stupendous and glorious edifice of liberty which had been erected on the foundation of human integrity in any time or country...
Seite 192 - It must always have been discoverable by persons of reflection, but it is now obvious to the world, that a theory concerning government may become as much a cause of fanaticism as a dogma in religion. There is a boundary to men's passions when they act from feeling ; none when they are under the influence of imagination.
Seite 166 - We have obligations to mankind at large, which are not in consequence of any special voluntary pact. They arise from the relatiou of man to man, and the relation of man to God, which relations are not matters of choice.
