Strana 592 - Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Strana 539 - Art thou called being a servant '( care not for it : but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.
Strana 583 - O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
Strana 538 - Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. For one believeth that he may eat all things ; another, who is weak, eateth herbs.

But all that has been delivered by the ancients and moderns, concerning the power of habit, custom, example, education, authority, party-prejudice, the manner of learning the manual and liberal arts, etc. goes upon...
