James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Bishop Butler
 
  Everything is what it is, and not another thing.  1
  Men are impatient and for precipitating things; but the Author of Nature appears deliberate throughout his operations, accomplishing his natural ends by slow successive steps.  2
  Natural knowledge is come at by the continuance and progress of learning and of liberty, and by particular persons attending to, comparing, and pursuing intimations scattered up and down it, which are overlooked and disregarded by the generality of the world.  3
