"Labor to get your hearts mortified to the world, dead to the world: We must not content ourselves that we have gotten some reasoning about the vanity of the creature, and such kind of things as these are, but we must exercise mortification, and be crucified to the world, faith Paul, I die daily, we should die daily to the world, we are baptized into the death of Christ, that is to signify that we have taken such a profession, as to profess to be even as dead men to the world; now there are no crosses that falls out in the world that doth trouble those that are dead, if our hearts were dead to the world, we should not be much troubled with the changes of the world, nor the toilings about of worldly things."
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.136.
