[ adverb ] in the second place




"second, we must consider the economy"

Used in print

(J. H. Hexter, "Thomas More: On the Margins...)

Secondly , to find a learned diversion and a pleasing joke in More 's account of the stupid brutalities of early sixteenth century wars , of the anguish of the poor and dispossessed , of the insolence and cruelty of the rich and powerful requires a callousness toward suffering and sin that would be surprising in a moral imbecile and most surprising in More himself .
