If piety toward the Gods be taken away, all faith between men, society itself, and justice that most excellent virtue are likewise destroy'd. We ought to worship the Gods. But that is the most acceptable worship which we pay with a pure, upright, and uncorrupt mind. God is not so much honoured by erecting lofty and stately Temples to him as by being consecrated in every man's own breast. Piety & sanctity of life will make the Gods placable and forgiving.
