"What is the health of a man's soul? That is a great deal better; the Lord hath inflicted external judgments, but he hath not inflicted spiritual judgments upon thee, he hath not given thee up to hardness of heart, and taken away the spirit of prayer from thee in thine afflicted estate, oh then be of good comfort, though there be outward afflictions upon thee, yet thy soul, thy more excellent part is not afflicted."
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.63.
