Sir Thomas Browne

Sir Thomas Browne

was an English author of varied works which reveal his wide learning in diverse fields including medicine, religion, science and the esoteric.
The severe schools shall never laugh me out of the philosophy of
Hermes, that this visible world is but a picture of the
invisible, wherein as in a portrait, things are not truly, but in
equivocal shapes, and as they counterfeit some real substance in
that invisible fabric.More Sir Thomas Browne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The voice of the world ["Charity begins at home"].More Sir Thomas Browne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Continuing a short series on topics of Christian apologetics: I desire to exercise my faith in the most difficult point, for to credit ordinary and visible objects is not faith, but persuasion. Some believe the better for seeing Christ's Sepulchre, and when they have seen the Red Sea, doubt not the miracle. Now contrarily I bless myself, and am thankful that I lived not in the days of miracles, that I never saw Christ nor His Disciples; I would not have been one of those Israelites that passed the Red Sea, nor one of Christ's patients, on whom He wrought His wonders; then had my faith been thrust upon me, nor should I enjoy that greater blessing pronounced to all that believe and saw not.More Sir Thomas Browne quotes [07/21/2011 12:07:31]
Rich with the spoils of nature.More Sir Thomas Browne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And sure there is music even in the beauty, and the silent note which Cupid strikes, far sweeter than the sound of an instrument; for there is music wherever there is harmony, order, or proportion; and thus far we may maintain the music of the spheres.More Sir Thomas Browne quotes [07/21/2011 12:07:25]
