"Now when the soul comes to get wisdom from Christ, to think of the danger that it is in, then it will be content in that low estate in which it is. A poor man that is in a low condition, thinks, I am low, and others are raised, but I know not what their burden is: and so, if he be rightly instructed in the school of Christ, he comes to be contented."
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.60.
