"Now I have diverse other things to open in the mystery of contentment. I should show likewise that a godly man, not only makes up all in God, but finds enough in himself to make up all, to make up all in himself, not from himself, but in himself, and that may seem to be stranger than the other: to make up all in God is somewhat, nay, to make up all in himself not from himself, but in himself, that is, a gracious heart hath so much of God within himself, that he hath enough there to make up all his wants that are without."
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.35.
