He thus commences his address to the students : " I have chosen to read upon the Statute of Uses, a law whereupon the inheritances of this realm are tossed at this day, like a ship upon the sea, in such sort, that it is hard to say which bark will sink, and which will get to the haven ; that is to say, what assurances will stand good, and what will not.
עמוד 2 - I hold every man a debtor to his profession; from the which, as men of course do seek to receive countenance and profit, so ought they of duty to endeavor themselves, by way of amends, to be a help and ornament thereunto.

עמוד 372 - ... faces : so that we have not to do, in this case, so much with particular persons, as with unsound and depraved opinions, like the dominations and spirits of the air which the Scripture speaketh of.
עמוד 59 - ... it be authority by his will to declare and appoint uses, and then though it were knight's service land, he might dispose the whole.
עמוד 505 - But to pass from the motions of my heart whereof God is only judge, to the merits of my cause whereof your Lordships are judges under God and his Lieutenant; I do understand there hath been heretofore expected from me some justification, and therefore I have chosen one only justification instead of all other, out of the justifications of Job.
