Thomas Browne

There are mystically in our faces certain characters which carry in them the motto of our souls, wherein he that cannot read A, B, C may read our natures.
Thomas Browne

Though it be in the power of the weakest arm to take away life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.
Thomas Browne
