"It is true, I cannot come to be as rich a man, and as honorable as others, but I may be as faithful as any other man: that every one of you may conclude with yourselves, what doth let, but that you that are the poorest and meanest may be as faithful as the greatest, yea, you may have as glorious a Crown in Heaven, and therefore go on comfortably and cheerfully in your way."
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.121.
