"...While I live in the world, my condition is to be but a pilgrim, a stranger, a traveler, and a soldier: now the right understanding of this, and being taught this, not only by rote, that I can speak the words over, but when I come indeed, to have my soul possessed with the consideration of this truth, that God hath set me in this world, not as in my home, but as a mere stranger and pilgrim, that I am traveling here to another home, that I am here a soldier in my warfare; it is a mighty help to contentment in whatsoever befalls one..."
