William Temple
Books, like proverbs, receive their chief value from the stamp and esteem of ages through which they have passed.
Temple quotes
Christianity teaches us to moderate our passions; to temper our affections toward all things below; to be thankful for the possession, and patient under loss, whenever He who gave shall see fit to take away.
No clap of thunder in a fair frosty day could astonish the world more than [England's] declaration of war against Holland in 1672.
