About this Quote

This quote by John Webster is a metaphor comparing a political leader to a quilted anvil, which is a tool used by blacksmiths to shape metal. The metaphor recommends that political leaders are used by the devil to form and form sins. The political leader is the anvil, and the devil is the blacksmith, hammering away at the anvil to form the sins. The metaphor also implies that the political leader is silent and does not speak out against the sins that are being formed on him. The political leader is powerless to stop the devil from forming the sins, and the blows of the hammer are never heard. This quote is an effective reminder of the power of the devil and how political leaders can be used to perform his will. It also works as an alerting to political leaders to be familiar with the power of the devil and to be cautious of his influence.
