204. lappuse - It is worthy the observing, that there is no passion in the mind of man so weak, but it mates and masters the fear of death : and therefore death is no such terrible enemy, when a man hath so many attendants about him, that can win the combat of him. Revenge triumphs over death; love slights it; honour aspireth to it; grief flieth to it...
225. lappuse - And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.
276. lappuse - The opinion of the earth's motion is of all heresies the most abominable, the most pernicious, the most scandalous ; the immovability of the earth is thrice sacred ; argument against the immortality of the soul, the existence of God, and the incarnation, should be tolerated sooner than an argument to prove that the earth moves.
219. lappuse - Long experience has shown that armies cannot be maintained unless desertion shall be punished by the severe penalty of death. The case requires, and the law and the Constitution sanction, this punishment.

226. lappuse - THE king, moreover, is not only incapable of doing wrong, but even of thinking wrong ; he can never mean to do an improper thing : in him is no folly or weakness.
71. lappuse - ... to be propagated from the father to the son, he was instantly gelded: a woman kept from all company of men; and if by chance, having some such disease, she were found to be with child, she with her brood were buried alive": and this was done for the common good, lest the whole nation should be injured or corrupted.
257. lappuse - I conclude that each generation has enormous power over the natural gifts of those that follow, and maintain that it is a duty we owe to humanity to investigate the range of that power, and to exercise it in a way that, without being unwise towards ourselves, shall be most advantageous to future inhabitants of the earth.
227. lappuse - But nevertheless, in that case we may not in any wise withstand violently, or rebel against rulers, or make any insurrection, sedition, or tumults, either by force of arms, or otherwise, against the anointed of the Lord, or any of his appointed officers : but we must in such case patiently suffer all wrongs and injuries, referring the judgment of our cause only to God.
