Page 23 - The character of the true philosopher is to hope all things not impossible, and to believe all things not unreasonable.
Page 27 - For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again; this charge I have received from my Father.
