  Altering, like one who waits for an ague fit.
            —John Dryden
  Alteration of Religion is dangerous, because we know not where it will stay: ’tis like a Millstone that lies upon the top of a pair of Stairs; ’tis hard to remove it, but if once it be thrust off the first stair, it never stays till it comes to the bottom.
            —John Selden
