From Samuel Rutherford's The Loveliness of Christ :
" It is impossible to be submissive and religiously patient if ye stay your thoughts down among the confused rollings and wheels of second causes, as O the place! O the time! O if this had been, this had not followed! O the linking of this accident with this time and place!
Look up to the master motion and the first wheel."
And from Jim Elliot :
Let not our longing slay the appetite of our living
