Sleep is a death, O make me try, By sleeping, what it is to die: And as gently lay my head On my grave, as now my bed.More Sir Thomas Browne quotes [07/21/2011 12:07:35]
Feast of Matthew, Apostle & Evangelist Continuing a series on God and the human condition: If we are directed only by our particular natures, and regulate our inclinations by no higher rule than that of our reasons, we are but moralists; divinity will still call us heathens. Therefore this great work of charity must have other motives, ends, and impulsions. I give no alms to satisfy the hunger of my brother, but to fulfil and accomplish the will and command of my God; I draw not my purse for his sake that demands it, but his that enjoined it; I relieve no man upon the rhetoric of his miseries, nor to content mine own commiserating disposition, for this is still but moral charity, and an act that oweth more to passion than reason.More Sir Thomas Browne quotes [07/21/2011 12:07:41]
Where life is more terrible than death, it is then the truest valor to dare to live.More Sir Thomas Browne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All things are artificial, for nature is the art of God.More Sir Thomas Browne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
