"This is now a mystery to a carnal heart, I say, a gracious man doth live so much in himself, as he doth in God, he lives in God continually, if there be anything cut off from the stream, he knows how to go to the fountain, and makes up all there; God is his All in All while he lives; I say, tis God that is his All in All."
Jeremiah Burroughs. "The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment." London: Printed by W. Bentley for L. Sadler and R. Beaumont, 1651. Reproduction of the original in the Union Theological Seminary (New York, N.Y.) Library. p.33.
