RICHARD HOOKER
English divine and author
(1553? - 1600)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 2 of 2

Zeal, unless it be rightly guided, when it endeavors the most busily to please God, forceth upon Him those unseasonable offices which please Him not.
      - [Zeal]

Dangerous it were for the feeble brain of man to wade far into the doings of the Most High; whom although to know be life, and joy to make mention of his name, yet our soundest knowledge is to know that we know him not as indeed he is, neither can know him; and out safest eloquence concerning him is our silence, when we confess without confession that his glory is inexplicable, his greatness above our capacity and reach.
      - Ecclesiastical Polity (bk. I, ch. II, 3)
        [God]

That to live by one man's will became the cause of all men's misery.
      - Ecclesiastical Polity (bk. I, ch. X, 5)
        [Misery]

So that every man lawfully ordained must bring a bow which hath two strings, a title of present right and another to provide for future possibility or chance.
      - Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity
         (bk. V, ch. LXXX, no. 9) [Prudence]

Of two
  Evils we take the less.
      - Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity
         (bk. V, ch. LXXXI) [Evil]
