"It may be so that persons may have gracious affections going with Scriptures which come to their minds, and the Spirit of God may make use of those Scriptures to excite them; when it is some spiritual sense, taste or relish they have of the divine and excellent things contained in those Scriptures that is the thing which excites their affections, and not the extraordinary and sudden manner of words being brought to their minds."
Jonathan Edwards. "The Religious Affections." Dover Publications, Inc: Mineola, New York. (1746) 2013. p.147.
