S. Austin Allibone, comp.  Prose Quotations from Socrates to Macaulay.  1880.
  As in confession the revealing is for the ease of a man’s heart, so secret men come to the knowledge of many things, while men rather discharge than impart their minds.
Francis Bacon.    
  He that confesses his sin, and prays for pardon, hath punished his fault: and then there is nothing left to be done by the offended party but to return to charity.
Jeremy Taylor.    
  There is a great measure of discretion to be used in the performance of confession, so that you neither omit it when your own heart may tell you that there is something amiss, nor overscrupulously pursue it when you are not conscious to yourself of notable failings.
Jeremy Taylor.    
  You must not only acknowledge to God that you are a sinner, but must particularly enumerate the kinds of sin whereof you know yourself guilty.
William Wake.
