JOHN BROWN (1)
English clergyman and miscellaneous writer
(1715 - 1766)

So far as I ever observed God's dealings with my soul, the flights of preachers sometimes entertained me, but it was Scripture expressions which did penetrate my heart, and in a way peculiar to themselves.
      - [Bible]

There is a shrine in the temple of age, where lie forever embalmed the memories of such as have deserved well of their country and their race.
      - [Decoration Day]

Now let us thank th' eternal power, convinc'd
  That Heaven but tries our virtue by affliction:
    That oft the cloud which wraps the present hour,
      Serves but to brighten our future days!
      - Bararossa (act V, sc. 3) [Affliction]

The intent and not the deed
  Is in our power; and, therefore, who dares greatly
    Does greatly.
      - Barbarossa [Courage]

'Tis mean for empty praise of wit to write,
  As fopplings grin to show their teeth are white.
      - Essay of Satire (st. 2) [Foppery]

Truth's sacred fort th' exploded laugh shall win,
  And coxcombs vanquish Berkeley with a grin.
      - Essay on Satire (pt. II, V, 224)
        [Laughter]
