Famous quotes containing the word canonical:

    If God bestowed immortality on every man then when he made him, and he made many to whom he never purposed to give his saving grace, what did his Lordship think that God gave any man immortality with purpose only to make him capable of immortal torments?

    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)
