"So what dost thou get by being a believer, a christian? What canst thou do by thy faith? I can do this, I can in all estates cast my care upon God, cast my burden upon God, I can commit my way to God in peace, faith can do this. Therefore when reason can go no higher, let faith get upon the shoulders of reason and say, I see land, though reason cannot see it, I see good that will come out of all this evil."
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.134-135.
