"Secondly, if this be your trouble that men do so wrong you, you are rather to turn your hearts to pity them, than to murmur or be discontented; for the truth is, if you be wronged by other men, you have the better of it, for it is better to bear wrong, than to do wrong, a great deal; if they wrong you, if your heart can submit, you are in a better condition than they, because it is better to suffer, than do wrong."
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.115.
