Σελίδα 20 - That no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested or burthened, in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge or affect their civil capacities.
Σελίδα 8 - To give praise where it is not due might be well from the venal, but would ill beseem those who are asserting the rights of human nature. They know, and will, therefore, say, that Kings are the servants, not the proprietors of the people. Open your breast, Sire, to liberal and expanded thought. Let not the name of George the third, be a blot on the page of history.
Σελίδα 9 - The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time; the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.
Σελίδα 7 - A Summary View of the Rights of British America. Set forth in some resolutions intended for the inspection of the present delegates of the people of Virginia now in convention.
Σελίδα 20 - ... that our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions, any more than our opinions in physics or geometry; that therefore the proscribing any citizen as unworthy the public confidence by laying upon him an incapacity of being called to offices of trust and emolument, unless he profess or renounce this or that religious opinion, is depriving him injuriously of those privileges and advantages to which in common with his fellow-citizens he has a natural right...
Σελίδα 34 - Jefferson; and it seemed as if from his youth he had placed his mind, as he had done his house, on an elevated situation, from which he might contemplate the universe.
Σελίδα 8 - Majesty, with that freedom of language and sentiment which becomes a free people, claiming their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.
Σελίδα 8 - The great principles of right and wrong are legible to every reader; to pursue them requires not the aid of many counsellors. The whole art of government consists in the art of being honest.
Σελίδα 9 - Accept of every commercial preference it is in our power to give for such things as we can raise for their use, or they make for ours. But let them not think to exclude us from going to other markets to dispose of those commodities which they cannot use, or to supply those wants which they cannot supply.
Σελίδα 9 - For ourselves, we have exhausted every mode of ap»plication, which our invention could suggest, as proper and promising. We have decently remonstrated with Parliament — they have added new injuries to the old ; we have wearied our King with supplications — he has not deigned to answer us ; we have appealed to the native honor and justice of the British nation — their efforts in our favor have hitherto been ineffectual.
