    • HEBREWS 11:5, 6
    • … For before his translation he had this testimony , that he pleased God . But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    • Things Real and Imaginary
    • “ On a certain occasion, when Betterton, a celebrated actor, was dining with Dr. Sheldon, [then] archbishop of Canterbury, the archbishop said to him, "Pray, Mr. Betterton, tell me why it is that you actors affect your audiences so powerfully by speaking of things imaginary." "My lord," replied Betterton, "with due submission to Your Grace, permit me to say that the reason is plain: It all lies in the power of enthusiasm . We on the stage speak of things imaginary as if they were real; and you in the pulpit speak of things real as if they were imaginary ."
