“I do not think our successes can compete with those of Lourdes. There are so many more people who believe in the miracles of the Blessed Virgin than in the existence of the unconscious.”

“Truly, My Satan, thou art but a Dunce,
And dost not know the Garment from the Man.
Every Harlot was a Virgin once,
Nor canst thou ever change Kate into Nan.”

“A hidden strength
Which if Heavn gave it, may be termd her own:
Tis chastity, my brother, chastity:
She that has that, is clad in compleat steel,
And like a quiverd Nymph with Arrows keen
May trace huge Forests, and unharbourd Heaths,
Infamous Hills, and sandy perilous wildes,
Where through the sacred rayes of Chastity,
No savage fierce, Bandite, or mountaneer
Will dare to soyl her Virgin purity,”
—John Milton (16081674)
