Let a man have a warehouse full of gold, let him be willing to give away a ducat to every one of the poor - but let him also be stupid enough to begin this charitable undertaking of his with a defence in which he offers three good reasons in justification; and it will almost come to the point of people finding it doubtful whether indeed he is doing something good.

If he does believe, then the enthusiasm of faith is not a defence, no, it is the assault and the victory; a believer is a victor."
