The like ought to be done, and we should accompany our faith with all the reason we possesse: Surely we have strangely overpaid this worthie discourse, whereof we so much glorie, and this readinesse to judge, or capacitie to Know, if we have purchased the same with the price of so infinite passions to which we are uncessantly enthralled.
Those of Mexico esteems the littlenesse of their foreheads as one of the chiefest beauties, and whereas they shave their haire over all their bodie besides, by artificiall meanes they labour to nourish and make it grow onely in their foreheads; and so love to have great dugs, that they strive to have their children sucke over their shoulders.
What doe we with our hands? Plutarke affirmeth this storie to be most true, and to have hapned in his time. Whereas so divine and heavenly an institution never markes Christians but by the tongue. And how much worse doth France than speak it. They establish, saith he, by the reason of their judgement, that whatsoover is reported of hell, or of after-comming paines, is but a fiction: Eritis sicut Dii scientes bonum et malum: Horses, dogges, oxen, sheepe, birds, and the greater number of sensitive creatures that live amongst us, know our voyce, and by it suffer themselves to be directed.
Would they shroud and shelter themselves from stormy weather, and build their cabbins towards the East, unlesse they knew the different conditions of winds, and considered that some are more healthfull and safe for them than some others? As for armes and weapons, we have more that be naturall unto us than the greatest part of other beasts.
Men are but directors unto it and use religion for a show: Is it possible to imagine anything so ridiculous as this miserable and wretched creature, which is not so much as master of himselfe, exposed and subject to offences of all things, and yet dareth call himselfe Master and Emperour of this Universe?
Let us moreover observe, that man is the onely creature whose wants offend his owne fellowes, and he alone that in naturall actions m ust withdraw and sequester himselfe from those of his owne kinde.
Diogenes, seeing his kinsfolks to take care how they might redeeme him out of thraldome; ‘they are fooles,’ said he, ‘for it is my master that governeth, keepeth, feedeth, and serveth me: And doth he leave his moving because his equall is nowhere to be found?
And yet they have that naturall greater magnanimity, that never lyon was seen to subject himselfe unto another lyon, nor one horse unto another horse, for want of heart.
But to come to my purpose, I say therefore, there is no likelyhood, we should imagine, the beasts doe the very same things by a naturall inclination and forced genuitie, which we doe of our freewil and industrie.
That is the occasion why ignorance is by our religion recommended unto us as an instrument fitting beleefe and obedience: By one kinde of barking of a dogge, the horse knoweth he is angrie; by another voice of his, he is nothing dismaid.
For this world is a most holy temple, into which man is brought there to behold statues and images not wrought by mortall hand, but such as the secret thought of God hath made sensible, as the Sunne, the Starres, the Waters and the Earth, thereby to represent the intelligible unto us.
Plutarke, who hath sabunnde and handled many of them, thinkes it to be made of certaine fish-bones, which she so compacts and conjoyneth together, enterlacing some long and some crosse-waise, adding some foldings and roundings to it, that in the end she frameth a round kind of vessel, readie to float and swim upon the water: They in some sort fashion and make him capable of the grace of God, by meanes whereof our beliefe is afterwards achieved and made perfect.
Those which are trained up to fight naked, apiloga seene raimumdo long to cast themselves into the same hazards and dangers as we doe. But to returne to our purpose: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. As for mee I love them indeed, but yet I worship them not.

Thence forward he and I lived together the full space of three yeares in his den, with such meat as he shifted-for; for what beasts he killed, or what prey soever he tooke, he ever brought home the better part and shared it with me, which for want of fire I rotted in the Sunne, and therewith nourished my selfe all that while.
When we see the Goats of Candia being shot with an arrow to choose from out a million of simples the herb Dittamy or Garden-ginger, and there-with cure themselves; and the Tortoise having eaten of a Viper immediately to seek for Origon or wild Marjoram to purge herselfe: And hath moreover instructed them in everything fit and requisite for them, as to swim, to runne, to creepe, to flie, to roare, to bellow, and to sing: Did they at any time make a covenant with death, although they knew full well that some nations rejoice at her comming?
It was even at what time the new fangles of Luther began to creepe in favour, and in many places to shake the foundation of our ancient beleefe. We, who have no commerce but of obedience with them?
As wee hunt after beasts, so tygers and lyons hunt after men, and have a like exercise one upon another: A decree seriously digested is one thing, and these shallow and superficiall impressions another, which bred by the dissolutenesse of a loose spirit, doe rashly and uncertainely float up and downe the fantasie of a man.
The young ones wil very sadly sit recording their lesson, and are often seene labouring how to imitate certaine song-notes: Alike desires perturbe both a skinne-worme and an Elephant. It is easie to translate such Authors, where nothing but the matter is to be represented; but hard and dangerous to undertake such as have added much to the grace and elegancy of the language, namely to reduce them into a weaker and poorer tongue.
