  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
