      - [Religion]

      - [Silence]

Truth often suffers more by the heat of its defenders than from the arguments of its opposers.

      - [Posterity]

What man in his right mind would conspire his own hurt? Men are beside themselves when they transgress against their convictions.
      - [Conviction]

When thou art obliged to speak, be sure to speak the truth; for equivocation is half-way to lying, and lying is the whole way to hell.
      - [Lying : Tongue]

Whoever is right, the persecutor must be wrong.
      - [Persecution : Principles]

Lest, selling that noble inheritance for a poor mess of perishing pottage, you never enter into His eternal rest.
      - No Cross no Crown
         (pt. II, ch. XX, sec. XXIII) [Birth]

No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.
      - No Cross, No Crown [Religion]

Naked Truth needs no shift.
      - Title of a Broadside [Truth]
