"If we would attend upon God, we must come out from the world. Conformity to the world and walking after the course of it must cease. The most desirable good things of it must be condemned in comparison with God and the better and enduring substance. We shall never look and aim so as to obtain the things that are unseen and eternal unless the eye is shut against the things that are seen and temporal."
|Nathanael Vincent (1638-1697)|
