Quotations:

  1. Thomas Jefferson – There exists indeed an opposition to it by the friends of William and Mary, which is not strong. The most restive is that of the priests of the different religious sects, who dread the advance of science as witches do the approach of day-light; and scowl on it the fatal harbinger announcing the subversion of the duperies on which they live. In this the Presbyterian clergy take the lead. The tocsin is sounded in all their pulpits, and the first alarm denounced is against the particular creed of Doctor.
  2. Philip Stokes – What proof is there that dupery through hope is so much worse than dupery through fear?
