"In order that the mind may not be taxed, moreover, by the manifold and confused reading of so many such things, and in order to prevent the escape of something valuable that we have read, heard, or discovered through the process of thinking itself, it will be found very useful to entrust to notebooks ... those things which seem noteworthy and striking."

[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]

Everything in Christianity is some kind of anticipation of something that is to be at the end of the world.

[eschatology: John Wesley, Sermon 141, "On the Holy Spirit"]
