Page 94 - The expense of government to the individuals of a great nation is like the expense of management to the joint tenants of a great estate, who are all obliged to contribute in proportion to their respective interests in the estate. In the observation or neglect of this maxim consists what is called the equality or inequality of taxation.

Page 451 - I want to take my stand on my favourite principle, that the world is made up of Christians and non-Christians ; with all the former we should be one, with none of the latter. I would thank the Parliament for having done away with distinctions between Christian and Christian ; I would pray that distinctions be kept up between Christians and non-Christians. Then I think that the Jews have no claim whatever of political right.
Page 325 - My soul shall make her boast in the Lord ; the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
