natural piety, to laws, to reputation, all which may be guides to an
outward moral virtue, though religion were not; but superstition dismounts

master of superstition is the people; and arguments are fitted to
practice, in a reverse order."
"Men fear death as children fear to go in the dark; and
as that natural fear in children is increased by tales, so is the other."
"A bad man is worse when he pretends to be a saint."
"The Trinitarian believes a virgin to be the mother of a
son who is her maker."
