- Puritan’ as a name was, in fact, mud from the start. Later, the word gained the further, political connotation of being against the Stuart monarchy and for some sort of republicanism; its primary reference, however, was still to what was seen as an odd, furious, and ugly form of Protestant religion.
- They believed that the Bible has all the answers to life’s questions. One sample of Puritan literature that supports this idea is the New England Primer, which is a book that the parents used to teach their children at a young age.

- Puritanism was not static and unchanging. At first it simply stood for further reform of worship, but soon it began to attack episcopacy as unscriptural.

- When the 16th-century Reformation took place three distinct sectors of reformation developed: the German, the Swiss (including France) and the English. Of these three the weakest and least hopeful was the English. At first opposition was fierce. 277 Christian leaders were burned to death at the stake during the reign of Queen Mary.
- Puritan life is probably one of the biggest paradoxes known to man theoretically. In practice is doesn t seem like such an absurd notion. There are certain things that may lead someone into confusion over the way that Puritan life was conducted. One of these things is the object of holiness.
- You probably are not sensible of this; you find you are kept out of hell, but do not see the hand of God in it; but look at other things, as the good state of your bodily constitution, your care of your own life, the means you use for your own preservation.
- Puritans were very reverent to the Bible as inspired by God. Their attitude was in complete submission, to them what the Bible said, God said (Brow 4). They believed that by adherence to this basis would remove them from the chance of heresy.
- Many people today, when they believe that no one is watching, would behave differently than they would when they are in the public eye.

- Anne Hutchinson has long been seen as a strong religious dissenter who paved the way for religious freedom in the strictly Puritan environment of New England Another interpretation of the controversy surrounding Anne Hutchinson asserts that she was simply a loving wife and mother whose charisma and personal ideas were misconstrued to be a radical religious movement Since this alleged religious movement was led by a woman, it was quickly dealt with by the Puritan fathers as a real threat Whatever her motives, she was clearly a great leader in the cause of religious toleration in America and the
- Nathaniel Hawthorne s The Scarlet Letter, a dark tale of sin and redemption,centers around the small Puritan community of Boston during the 17th century. In the midst of this small community is Hester Prynne. She is a woman that has defied the Puritans, taken the consequences and in the end conformed with the Puritans.
- “What is one man?s poison?is another?s meat or drink,” Beaumont and Fletcher wrote in one of their plays. Almost everything in the world is interpretable in at least two conflicting ways.
