S. Austin Allibone, comp.  Prose Quotations from Socrates to Macaulay.  1880.
  Neither a bare approbation of, nor a mere wishing, nor unactive complacency in, nor, lastly, a natural inclination to, things virtuous and good, can pass before God for a man’s willing of such things: and, consequently, if men, upon this account, will needs take up and acquiesce in an airy ungrounded persuasion that they will those things which really they not will, they fall thereby into a gross and fatal delusion.
