Examples

  • Having chosen to believe, he cannot be too pronounced and decisive in his faith; he will never attempt to eliminate certain articles of the credenda, and so “decrassify” his faith, for to this process, if once begun, there is no end; having donned his uniform, he will wear it, laces and spangles and all.

    Robert Browning
