"What victory would the Devil have to win a
soul already bad? It is the best the Devil wants,
and who is better than a minister?"
"I cannot tell. If she is truly in the Devil's grip we may have to rip and tear to get her free."
"Nonsense! Mister, I have myself examined Tituba, Sarah Good, and numerous others that have confessed to dealing with the Devil. They have confessed it."
"(in great pain) Man, remember, until an hour before the Devil fell, God thought him beautiful in Heaven."
"I denounce these proceedings, I quit this court!"
"Excellency, it is a nature lie to tell;
I beg you, stop now before another is
condemned! I may shut my conscience
to it no more - private vengeance is
working through this testimony! From

I came into this village like a bridegroom to his beloved, bearing gifts of high religion; the very crowns of holy law I brought, and where I turned the eye of my great faith, blood flowed up. Beware, Goody Proctor - cleave to no faith when faith brings blood. It is mistaken law that leads you to sacrifice. Life, woman, life is God's most precious gift; no principle, however glorious, may justify the taking of it. I beg you, woman, prevail upon your husband to confess. Let him give his lie. Quail not before God's judgment in this, for it may well be God damns a liar less than he that throws his life away for pride. Will you plead with him? I cannot think he will listen to another."
"Woman, plead with him! Woman! It is pride, it is vanity. Be his helper!- What profit him to bleed? Shall the dust praise him? Shall the worms declare his truth? Go to him, take his shame away!"
"Man, you will hang! You cannot!"
"Aye. But the Devil is a wily one, you cannot deny it. However, she is far from accused, and I know she will not be. I thought, sir, to put some questions as to the Christian character of this house, if you'll permit me."
