"By murmuring and discontent in your hearts, you come to lose a great deal of time; How many times do men and women, when they are discontented, let their thoughts run, and are musing and contriving through their present discontentedness; then let their discontented thoughts be working in them for some hours together, and they spend their time in vain. When you are alone, you should spend your time in holy meditation, but you are spending your time in discontented thoughts..."
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.91.
