Page 456 - I can say this of Naseby: that when I saw the enemy draw up and march in gallant order towards us, and we a company of poor ignorant men, to seek how to order our battle (the General having commanded me to order all the Horse), I could not (riding alone about my business) but smile out to God in praises, in assurance of victory, because God would, by things that are not, bring to naught things that are. Of which I had great assurance. And God did it.
Page 400 - Self-reverent each and reverencing each, Distinct in individualities, But like each other even as those who love. Then comes the statelier Eden back to men ; Then reign the world's great bridals, chaste and calm ; Then springs the crowning race of humankind.
