Thomas Browne   Category:

There are mystically in our faces certain characters which carry in them the motto of our souls, wherein he that cannot read A, B, C may read our natures.
Thomas Browne   Category:

Though it be in the power of the weakest arm to take away life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.
Thomas Browne   Category:

To believe only possibilities is not faith, but mere philosophy.
Thomas Browne   Category:

We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.

We carry within us the wonders we seek without us.
