Richard Corbet Quotes

    The Distracted Puritan

    Am I mad, O noble Festus,
    When zeal and godly knowledge
    Have put me in hope
    To deal with the Pope
    As well as the best in the college?
    Boldly I preach, I hate a cross, hate a surplice,
    Mitres, copes, and rochets!
    Come hear me pray nine times a day,
    And fill your heads with crotchets.
