The Bible

“Here are the infallible rules whereby I may know the state of my soul, and if my claim for future bliss is well grounded, or founded on delusive dreams. Here I learn what things I should be concerned about; and how to estimate created things, and all the gaudy pomp of time. In a word, here I am taught how to have my heart in heaven—while living on earth; how to ripen for glory, and bring glory to God.”

– James Meikle (1730-1799), from Solitude Sweetened, p. 213
