"Let me therefore be quiet and content, for though I be crossed in some one particular, God attains His end, at least His end may be furthered in a thousand things by this one thing that I am crossed in; therefore let a man consider, this is an act of providence, and how do I know what God is about to do, and how many things depend upon this providence?"
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.65.
