  • "it plainly appears that there have been always false teachers in the World who have pretended to inspiration, as far as we have any history to inform us." p. 13
  • "he who will faithfully apply himself to the various labors of the ministerial office will be apt to find it a work of great and sore labor and fatigue" p. 95
  • "Do not be forward in condemning one another as heretics or putting the worst meaning on every doubtful expression, thereby making a man an offender for a word. Do not impute to your neighbors all those consequences, which you think are fairly deducible, from some principle of his," - "When will Christians learn to treat one another with candor!" p. 126
  • "Never cast dirt, never so anything that might but seem to favor of hatred or contempt of the person of antagonist. Never think it a shame, but account it your honor to give up a point, when you are convinced it cannot be defended. And be candid enough to own your error, as soon as you are convinced you are in error. If you find that disputes cannot be managed without envy, strife, evil surmisings, and the like, then avoid them altogether. p. 127
