James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Hooker
 
  Law has her seat in the bosom of God, her voice in the harmony of the world.  1
  The casting away things profitable for the maintenance of man’s life is an unthankful abuse of the fruits of God’s good providence towards mankind.  2
  The general and perpetual voice of men is as the sentence of God himself.  3
  The greatest felicity that felicity hath is to spread.  4
  The salve of reformation they mightily call for, but where and what the sores are which need it, as they wot full little, so they think not greatly material to search.  5
  The seat of law is the bosom of God; her voice, the harmony of the world.  6
  To live by one man’s will became the cause of all men’s misery.  7
