Stars are poor books, and oftentimes do miss;
This book of stars lights to eternal bliss.

And that the Scriptures, though not every where
Free from corruption, or entire, or clear,
Are uncorrupt, sufficient, clear, entire,
In all things which our needful faith require.
Dryden.—Religio Laici, Line 297.

Writ in the climate of Heaven, and in the language spoken by angels.
Longfellow.—From Bishop Tegner’s Children of the Lord’s Supper.
