POWELL, Sir John Quotes
(1633-1696), English judge
By afflictions God is spoiling us of what otherwise might have spoiled us.—When he makes the world too hot for us to hold, we let it go.
What though we quit all glittering pomp and greatness, we may enjoy content; in that alone is greatness, power, wealth, honor, all summed up.
Consider the reason of the case, for nothing is law that is not reason.
