Seite 6 - In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun : which cometh forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a giant to run his course.
Seite 30 - Deus, inquit Epicurus, aut vult tollere mala, et non potest; aut potest et non vult; aut neque vult, neque potest; aut et vult et potest. Si vult et non potest imbecillis est, quod in Deum non cadit.
