BISHOP JOHN JEWELL (JEWEL)
English clergyman and founder of English Protestantism
(1522 - 1571)

Cities fall, empires come to nothing, kingdoms fade away as smoke. Where is Numa, Minos, Lycurgus? Where are their books? and what has become of their laws? But that this book no tyrant should have been able to consume, no tradition to choke, no heretic maliciously to corrupt; that it should stand unto this day, amid the wreck of all that was human, without the alteration of one sentence so as to change the doctrine taught therein,--surely there is a very singular providence, claiming our attention in a most remarkable manner.
      - [Scripture]

In old time we had treen chalices and golden priests, but now we have treen priests and golden chalices.
      - Certain Sermons Preached Before the Queen's Majesty
        [Religion]

Vessels never give so great a sound as when they are empty.
      - Defense of the Apology for the Church of England
        [Silence]
